Lady Dawgs Face Clark Lady Rams

After a torrential downpour ravaged the high school football field on Saturday afternoon, Island Trees administrators were forced to dramatically alter plans for the school’s regularly scheduled Homecoming festivities.

The Bulldogs’ football game against Seaford, which was scheduled to take place Oct. 29 at 2 p.m., was delayed by 24 hours. In addition, the Homecoming Parade was completely scrapped and the Lady Dawgs’ soccer match against Clarke was also switched to Sunday morning. The decision to switch the Homecoming festivities to Sunday would ultimately prove to be a good one, as over a dozen high school football players across Long Island were reportedly hospitalized with symptoms of hypothermia on Saturday afternoon.

Generals Win 20-18 Over Oceanside

There are three things you can count on seeing a lot of during late October in Levittown: school spirit, proud parents, and wins from the MacArthur Generals football team.
