Peter Brasile and Wantagh celebrated a come-from-behind win over Elmont.

Senior quarterback Joe Capobianco was 13 of 21 for 258 yards and four touchdowns to lead Lawrence to a convincing 42-12 victory over visiting Sewanhaka in the opening round of the Nassau Conference III playoffs on Saturday.

Junior Sam Locascio had four receptions for 117 yards, and pulled in a pair of touchdowns passes, including one on the final play of the opening half which gave the Golden Tornadoes a 34-6 lead.

Sophomore Marquan Williams ran for 75 yards on 11 carries to lead the Lawrence rushing attack. The top-seeded Golden Tornadoes will take on No. 5 Glen Cove at Hofstra University next Saturday morning at 10.

Twenty four strong minutes from senior running back Tariek Harris, plus two forced fumbles  by its defense and a blocked punt by the special added up to a 35-21 victory for No. 2 Oceanside (8-1) over No. 7 Baldwin (3-6) in the first round of the Nassau County Conference I football playoffs.

Harris, who had just one carry for five yards in the first half, kick started a Sailors run of 28 consecutive points in the third and fourth quarters with a 1-yard plunge just after halftime. The one-play drive followed up a blocked punt and return to the Baldwin 1 by senior Ryan Hertling.

Harris finished with 104 yards rushing on 13 carries and three touchdowns and supported a defense that kept Baldwin off the scoreboard in the second half until Bruins quarterback Tyler Warner threw his third touchdown pass of the game with just 1:01 remaining.

“He sets up 90 percent of their plays,” Baldwin head coach Steve Carroll said of Harris, who ripped off runs of 59, 23 and 20 yards in the second half.

Oceanside advances to the semifinal round at Hofstra this Saturday where it meets No. 3 Massapequa.
