The Sachem North Varsity Football team hosted the Armed Forces "Great American Rivalry Game" on Friday, Oct. 4 and defeated the Northport Tigers 34-20.
Running back Malik Pierre carried the ball for 200 yards and had three touchdowns, earning the game's MVP Award.
"It's nice to win it, but I wouldn't have done it without my teammates," Pierre said after the game. The Arrows offensive line created holes all night for Pierre to gobble up yardage, including a 50-yard scramble that iced the game for Sachem North.
For winning the Great American Rivalry game, Sachem North received a glass trophy and commemorative hats to mark the victory. North has participated and won the Great American Rivalry game four times. The team is now 4-0 on the season, with homecoming scheduled for this week against Commack, also 4-0.
