The Plainview JFK varsity football team travels to Massapequa Saturday to take on the 4-2 Chiefs.
Both teams suffered losses last week: Plainview is coming off a homecoming defeat to Syosset on a day that saw the dedication of the community's new turf field. Plainview's record is 2-4 on the season. Massapequa was surprised last week by Oceanside, 16-13.
In the photo from the Town of Oyster Bay, Supervisor John Venditto makes the opening coin flip at last Saturday's game at Plainview, surrounded by town officials and the team captains from Plainview and Syosset.
Venditto and the town board worked extensively with the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District to build the new lighted turf field.
