Last night the Sachem North Flaming Arrows ran out onto the field missing the core of their team. With injuries to Trent Crossan, Tyler Andreassi, Anthony Ross, Nick Accurso, Vin Valente, Mike Sofia, Ryan Felske and Matt O'Leary, the Flaming Arrows were destined to lose and lose big to the undefeated Connetquot Thunderbirds.
Except someone forgot to tell the Sachem North Flaming Arrows. With huge performances from Malik Pierre and Kevin Bragaglia, Sachem North forced two big turnovers, ran the ball efficiently, and poured on the offense with an emotional and inspiring 49-28 win over Connetquot.
With the win, Sachem closed the season out at 6-2, and preserved their unbeaten-at-home streak for a full three seasons running now. Today's games will determine the playoff bracket. Patch will have more on this game and who their first-round opponent will be in the coming days. Until now, browse our photos of last night's game. It was one for the ages.
