East Meadow edges Baldwin, 9-7
(Page 2 of 2)

Billy Andrle's late touchdown gave East Meadow a 9-7 victory over Baldwin.

For the first 58 minutes, the only points scored came on the first career field-goal (and attempt) by Jets senior kicker Kyle Bettex, who converted from 29 yards out with eight seconds left in the first half. For Carroll, a strong week of practice leading up to the matchup, including great work by the scout team, went a long way to slowing down East Meadow’s versatile option attack. “The kids played well and remembered what they were supposed to do and where they were [supposed to be],” Carroll said.

Like the Bruins, the Jets defense also turned in a spirited effort. Loaded with juniors — seven are in the starting lineup — things seemed to come together for East Meadow (4-1) with senior lineman Chris Green (eight tackles) leading the way. “It was a real pride game for them,” Mascia said. “They won the game, from the gameplan by the coaches to the execution by the players. We made tackles against some special backs.”
