Fall was in the air and the crowd was definitely feeling the mood, it was football season. The fans were wearing sweatshirts, women were wearing scarfs colored blue and orange, and it was a perfect night for the Indians to have a comeback from last week’s upset. The Manhasset Indians were playing the Valley Stream Falcons on Oct. 1 from 6:15 to 9:15 p.m. on their home field. Manhasset was picked to win this game and they aimed to prove it. It appeared Manhasset walked all over Valley Stream as if they didn’t even exist.
Going into the second half, it looked very promising. Manhasset’s main playmaker Ryan Matthews scored a huge 68-yard touchdown with under five minutes to go in the second quarter. Manhasset was ready to come away with the upset, but unfortunately the Bethpage defense was just way too tough for the Manhasset offense.
