BREWSTER, N.Y. - Anyone who was expecting a repeat of the high-scoring circus show that happened last time these two teams met - with Brewster scratching out a 56-49 victory - was probably disappointed with Friday night's Class A quarterfinal showdown between No. 2 Brewster and No. 7 Hen Hud.
Yes, there was some excitement in the fourth quarter, with back-to-back interceptions - one from each team - and some sloppy play producing a few anxious moments, but for the most part this one belonged to Brewster, which held on for a 42-28 victory.
Brewster (8-0) hosts No. 3 Somers (7-1) in next week's semifinals. Game time is expected to be Friday at 7 p.m.
The Bears built a 35-13 lead by halftime, and went up 42-13 when quarterback Jack Guida - who continued to shred defenses - broke loose for a 66-yard touchdown scamper on the second play of the third quarter. Guida appeared to be down for no gain, but rolled over the back of a would-be tackler and kept his feet, and his speed allowed him to pull away from a pack of pursuing defenders.
Guida finished with four touchdowns, and 253 yards rushing on 22 carries.He also had an interception late in the game. Henry Terry had two touchdowns, including a kickoff return for the Bears.
QB Nick Cunningham completed 26 of 45 attempts in the air for 288 yards and had three touchdowns, but three interceptions slowed the Sailors (5-3) down.
