Carey wins big in opener
(Page 2 of 2)
J. Heck/Herald
Carey sophomore receiver Nick Spillane enjoyed a big opening day with two touchdown receptions.

Robison’s first interception put Carey’s offense back in business at the Mepham 38-yard line late in the first quarter. Three plays later, Spillane was in the end zone again after catching a short pass and racing down the middle 28 yards for a touchdown. A 31-yard field goal by DeMeo on the last snap of the half extended the lead to 23-0.

DeMeo put the icing on the cake with a 19-yard touchdown grab early in the third quarter set up by Robison’s second interception.

“We dug a big hole early against a good team,” said Mepham head coach Anthony Cracco, who guided the Pirates to a 14-7 victory at Carey in Week 2 last season. “It’s a tough start, but we have to get right back to work and get ready for Kennedy,” he added. “It’s a big game.”

Kennedy, which visits Mepham this Saturday for a 1:30 p.m. homecoming kickoff, dropped its opener to Long Beach. The Marines host Carey in Week 2.
