The only thing standing between the Dalers and their perfect season were the Chiefs of Massapequa in the final game last month. It was an unseasonable warm day when the Dalers came calling to Massapequa High School led by their head coach Frank Tassielli and coaches Jim Pastier and Walt Henning.
Before the Massapequa team even knew that it was morning, the Dalers had posted a 28 on the scoreboard to take a commanding lead at halftime. Sophomore quarterback Michael Scheuerer threw three touchdown passes in the first half to etch his name into Daler lore by hooking up 16 times with his receivers this year to go down as one of the most prolific JV quarterback the high school has even seen. On the back end of those passes, sophomore Nicky Butler registered seven touchdown receptions.
