Senior star Alex Epprecht pitched in with 290 yards on 35 carries, while Combs, a threat both running and passing had 66 yards on 20 rushes.

It’s not just the Roslyn High School football team that had a great year this past fall,
The Roslyn Marching Bulldogs continued to add to their reputation as one of the top high school bands in the New York metropolitan area.
Last year, the Roslyn Blue Devils won the National Junior Baseball League age 13 Central Divisional Championship. This year, under the direction of head coach, Brian Meyerson, the graduated into the 14-year old division. And they ended the season with the same championship result.
First, it was the basketball squad that had a winning year and now the Roslyn High School football team has had their own championship season.
As noted in last week’s issue, the Bulldogs topped Port Washington in an exciting Conference V playoff game, 15-14. According to Roslyn High School athletic department officials, the win made Roslyn the “top team” in the conference. But since they won the game and did so on the road and in comeback fashion, the Bulldogs have earned every right to be hailed as champions of the conference.
Roslyn tennis star Dawn Bernstein has had a superlative year on the courts. As team captain, she led a Glen Cove-based team to the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) Eastern Section championships. From there, the team advanced to the national championships, held last month in Tucson, Ariz.
The team won the Eastern Section title at a tournament in Schenectady, NY. In Tucson, the Glen Cove squad had a 2-1 team record, but only a 7-8 individual record as a team from the La Habra Tennis Center in southern California took the national title.
No one can remember the last time it happened, but last Saturday, the Roslyn Bulldogs won the Conference V championship, defeating Port Washington, 15-14.
The Bulldogs won the game in amazing fashion. Facing a fourth down and six with three minutes to go in the second quarter, Adam Combs delivered an 18-yard touchdown pass to his favorite target, Isaiah Hunter, giving Roslyn a slim 15-14 lead at halftime. However, that lead would prove to be good enough as neither team scored in the second half, allowing the Bulldogs to hold onto a one point lead.
It has been 40 years since Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in the famed “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match. This year also marks that same anniversary of the founding of the Women’s Tennis Association.
This Saturday, the Roslyn Bulldogs have a chance to both avenge their recent loss to Port Washington and more importantly, win the Conference V championship. At 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 2, the Bulldogs will travel to Port Washington to play Paul Scheiber High School in the title game.
Meanwhile, the regular season ended with a flourish last week as Roslyn defeated Great Neck North, 28-9 in a home game played under sunny, but brisk conditions.
