Gibbons, Chiefs’ Show up and Show out for Homecoming

After the Chiefs honored their senior football players, cheerleaders, and chiefettes at their annual Homecoming game, the team continued their domination with a 33-7 win over the Plainview-Old Bethpage Hawks on Saturday, October 28th.
“It was a hard day to focus, especially for the seniors, but we did a good job coming out ready to play,” senior captain James McGarrity said.
The Chiefs won the coin toss and chose to defer and kick off to the Hawks. Soon after the toss, the Chiefs defense took the field. The Hawks’ run game had led them to a couple of first downs on the first possession, but once the Chiefs got into a rhythm the Hawks’ offense was ineffective and the Chiefs forced the Hawks to punt for the majority of the game.
On the Chiefs’ first offensive play, junior quarterback Kenny Galvin launched a 78-yard bomb to star receiver Owen Glascoe for a touchdown, and the Chiefs never looked back from that point. Senior running back Alec Surrow ran in a 3 yard touchdown to extend the Chiefs lead to 20 late in the second quarter.
Garrett Gibbons scored a 20 yard touchdown in the first quarter to put the Chiefs up by 14 points, and when the Hawks began to gain momentum, Gibbons came up with a clutch interception in the red zone to prevent the Hawks from scoring with 3:30 left in the second quarter.
The Chiefs went into the locker room with a 20-0 lead after the first half. Picking up where they left off, the Chiefs came out and scored on their first offensive play of the second half with a 60 yard touchdown run from Angelo Petrakis. Garrett Gibbons later added to his performance with a 20 yard touchdown reception from Kenny Galvin in the third quarter.
Kenny Galvin finished the game 8 for 12 with 161 yard passing and two touchdowns, Garrett Gibbons and Angelo Petrakis combined for 118 yard rushing and two touchdowns, and Owen Glascoe finished the game with 88 yards receiving and a touchdown.
“It was a really exciting game to watch,” junior attendee Kevin Maguire said. “All of the football players did a great job defending the team’s title and their practice really showed off.”
The Chiefs look to continue their level of play as they enter the playoffs which begin next week. The team finished with a 5-1 record in the regular season and look to punch their ticket to a county final in the upcoming weeks.
