Blazers Go Head-to-Head With the Best

Written by Eamonn Flood, athletic director Friday, 25 December 2009 00:00

The Great Neck North High School football team played one of the greatest football games in recent Great Neck history in a first round playoff to loss to Plainedge on Saturday, Dec. 12. After trailing 14-0 at halftime, the Blazers came out in the second half and scored on the second play from scrimmage with Dillon Sedaghatpour going 40 yards down the left side line for a touchdown. Kyle Heyman added the extra point to make the score 14-7. After trading possession back and forth for the remainder of the 3rd quarter, the Blazers, led by All-County Quarterback Adam Goltche, marched 80 yards down field to the Plainedge one-yard line. During the drive Adam connected with Cyrus Nazmiyal and Ariel Mardkhai on passes of 16 and 23 yards respectively to make it first and goal. On 2nd down it appeared that Adam had scored the game-tying touchdown on a quarterback sneak, but the officials ruled him down on the Plainedge one-inch line. On 3rd down the Blazers fumbled the ball and Plainedge recovered in the end zone for a touchback.
