Vikings Come Up Short, Chiefs Blanked

By Jason Linetsky

Tottenville – 20, South Shore – 17

The South Shore Vikings entered last Friday’s matchup against the Tottenville Pirates for the final game of the regular season following a loss to Erasmus Hall High School. Despite being in hostile territory, the Vikings held the Pirates at bay throughout the first three quarters. Tottenville’s defense also put in a great performance to hold South Shore scoreless throughout the same periods.

It is unclear if both teams were exhausted or if there were too many decision errors by coaches in the fourth as both offenses woke up. In the end, though, the Pirates were able to edge out the win 20-17 and hand the Vikings a record of 5-4. The loss moved South Shore down to 7th place in the City Conference.

Despite the loss, the Vikings will move on to the 2017-18 PSAL Varsity Football City Conference Championships as the 7th seed and take on the 10th seed Harry S. Truman Mustangs in the first round. The game is scheduled for Saturday at 11 a.m. at Sheepshead Bay High School’s field, 3000 Avenue X.

Abraham Lincoln – 35, Canarsie – 0

The losing streak continued for the Canarsie Chiefs on Friday as they fell to the Abraham Lincoln Railsplitters. Turnovers were the culprits once again as Kevon Mitchell threw one interception and rushes by Johnny Watson and Sameer Akesson led to a fumble apiece. The Chiefs defense also failed, allowing at least one touchdown each quarter. Lincoln handed Canarsie a 35-0 loss and a final record of 3-6. They fall to 13th place and potentially the 13th seed in the City Conference Championships.

If the standings remain unchanged, the Chiefs will go against the 4th seed Midwood High School Hornets on Saturday at noon. The location has yet to be determined.
