Late touchdown beats Lynbrook
(Page 2 of 2)
Steven Ryan/Herald
Sophomore Dylan Lucas rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns in Lynbrook's hard-fought Conference III playoff defeat at Plainedge.

“We wouldn’t have come this far without Danny,” LoCicero said of Kelly, who had at least 150 yards in each of the last five games. “He’s one of the best running backs, or quarterbacks, that I’ve ever coached.”

Kelly and Lucas had 45 yards apiece on an impressive game-opening scoring drive that set the tone for the day’s fireworks. Plainedge led 14-7 after the first quarter on a pair of scores by Gianfranco Soriente (156 yards, four touchdowns), and held a 28-21 advantage at halftime.

Both offenses continued to shine in the second half. Cupolo, on a 40-yard catch, and Soriente, on a 45-yard run, sandwiched third-quarter touchdowns around Kelly’s longest score to give the Red Devils a 41-28 lead. Touchdowns by Lucas and Kelly brought the teams even for a fourth time, but as Plainedge head coach Rob Shaver said “somebody had to win and somebody had to lose.”
