Syosset Hands Plainview Tough Defeat, 7-0

The hard-fought battle in Plainview came down to the final minutes.

The intense final minutes of Saturday's high school football game between nearby rivals Plainview JFK and Syosset saw the Hawks fall short, 7-0 in a hard-fought contest at Plainview.

Syosset scored the game's only touchdown just before halftime. The Braves mounted a 75-yard drive that concluded with Hunter Gross' 4-yard-run to the end zone with 20 seconds left.

The game, which saw Plainview give up five turnovers, became a defensive struggle in the second half, with neither team managing to score.

Plainview mounted two scoring drives in the final minutes of the game. One of those ended in a controversial interception off of a deflected pass. The second was on a last-gasp pass attempt by Hawks' quarterback Alec Abramowitz that was picked off by a Syosset defender as time expired.

Plainview and Syosset are now share 2-3 records in the Nassau I Conference.
