Blue Devils' Section 4-record 38-game run ends in title game

Rye pulls away in second half

by Kevin Stevens
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin 

SYRACUSE --The bell tolled on Chenango Forks' record football win streak at 5:06 Sunday evening.

For the first time since the 2002 postseason finale, the Blue Devils were beaten -- on this occasion, soundly -- 28-7 by a squad from Rye High School that did to Forks in the Carrier Dome what Forks had done to so many on its way to 38 consecutive victories.

The Garnets struck first, were never caught, and employed the same resolute, physical style of play on both sides of the line of scrimmage that has been Forks' trademark to earn the program's first Class B state championship.

Rye's rushers rang up a yardage total nearly twice that of Forks, and the Garnets' defenders limited Forks to a scoring output 14 shy of what had been its 2005 low and nearly 27 short of its season average.

"We threw everything at them that we could, they're just a great team," Forks quarterback Rick Mirabito said.

"They would line it up, throw six guys at three of us and plow us over. It was a team effort," said Blue Devils tackle Matt Faughnan.

"They kept the football, moved the football, that's the blueprint for success right there," Forks coach Kelsey Green said. "They had it."

It was a veteran Rye squad that took the field with a big-time appetite for title-game success, having fallen to Forks by a combined 64-0 in the last two Class B finals.

And the Garnets (12-0) proceeded to feast, bite-by-bite, with an offense that effectively sprinkled in the pass with an overpowering run game for which Forks had too few answers.

David Telesco rushed 20 times for 109 yards and teammate Robert Nieves 22 times for 84, behind a line that had the better of a Forks group unaccustomed to being handled in such a fashion.

The score that extinguished what little realistic hopes remained for Forks came in the form of a 20-yard, third-down run by Peter Niehaus with 4:54 remaining in the game. Sebastian Saunders closed out a 4-for-4 day kicking PATs and the final points were on the board.

"They had a 38-game winning streak. What are the chances of beating a team like this?" Niehaus said. "I don't know what to say right now. It's just unbelievable.

"This is for all the Rye teams that had gotten here. This is for everyone."

Upon conclusion of the first half, Forks had 43 rushing yards and three first downs, had punted three times and been intercepted once.

In essence, the Blue Devils (12-1) had been Forked.

Still, the deficit was a scant 7-0, the touchdown coming midway through the first quarter on a 2-yard rush by 210-pound Nieves to finish an eight-play, 49-yard drive.

This was no gloom-and-doom scenario for Forks, which -- unlike the team of a season ago -- had emerged from a jam or two along the way.

The likes of this Rye outfit, however, hadn't been previously encountered.

Forks went backward on its second half-opening possession, punted from its 16-yard line, and the Garnets took over at the Blue Devils' 42. Two first downs and a penalty later, Rye had second-and-goal from the 14.

Quarterback Jack Donnelly lofted a pass to the right side of the end zone, where Niehaus had slipped behind a defender to make the grab and help his team to a 14-0 advantage.

This time, Forks responded.

Four plays into a possession that started at their 18-yard line, the Devils converted on fourth down when Jim Nicholson rushed for 2 yards. A play later, Rye's Tim Monaghan was called for pass interference and Forks was at its 46. Mirabito gained 3 yards to the 49, and what came next suggested that, just maybe, some ballgame remained.

Nicholson took a handoff from Mirabito, started over the left side of the line, ran through a couple of attempted tackles, sprang into the clear at Rye's 45-yard line and won a footrace into the end zone.

Ed Samson kicked the extra point and it was 14-7 with 3:09 left in the third quarter.

But Rye's Nieves and Telesco went to work, rushing for 6 yards here, 11 there, and bringing their team to Forks' 17-yard line.

Donnelly -- who'd re-injured his left ankle early on in the possession -- hit Monaghan for a 14-yard gain to the 2½ yard line. Mirabito felled Nieves for a 2-yard loss on the next play, but Donnelly delivered a soft pass to Monaghan in the right side of the end zone behind the defense to regain a two-TD advantage 1:39 into the final quarter.

Forks, forced to modify its game plan with time-a-wasting, gave up the football four plays into the ensuing possession when Mirabito was intercepted by Alex Urso.

Rye took the football at midfield, ran six plays to arrive at the 20-yard line, and Niehaus put on the finishing touches with his 20-yard scoring run with 4:54 to play.

"When Jimmy broke that run, I thought we're going to turn it around," Mirabito said. "But they came out and scored on that series, we throw the interception and they come back and score."

"When they scored after that interception, basically, we knew. There was no time to come back," said Nicholson, whose 63 yards headed Forks rushers.

The final tally sheet reflected Rye's superiority in such categories as time of possession (28:58 to 19:02); third-down conversions (7-for-12 to 3-for-10); total offensive plays (62 to 37); and passing efficiency (5-for-8 to 1-for-6).

Together, it added up to Forks' first defeat since a last-second field goal by Harrison downed the Blue Devils in the 2002 state final. Thereafter began the Section 4-record streak.

"They did the two things you have to do to win most football games in high school and they did them very well today," Green said of Rye's ability to run the football and to contain the Devils' running game.

"Up front, both ways, they were very physical and aggressive. They got off blocks, swarmed us, gang-tackled, made it tough for us to get anything going offensively."

Worthy foe finally ends 3-year run

by Kevin Stevens
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin

SYRACUSE -- He'd been a starter on both lines for teams that had won 38 consecutive football games.

On Sunday, Chenango Forks senior Matt Faughnan felt defeat for the first time as a varsity player when Rye High knocked off the Blue Devils, 28-7, in the Carrier Dome for the Class B state title.

"This was going to be the icing on the cake," said Faughnan, a 300-pound tackle, moments after he'd been recognized as the game's Most Valuable Defensive Lineman. "The cake was already made for the last 38 games, this would have been like the sprinkles on top.

"But I don't think it diminishes anything we've done for the last three years. We worked harder than anybody else, we came out and played Forks football the way we could, the way we should.

"I don't think this does anything to tarnish anything we've done the last three years."

What the Blue Devils have accomplished figures to go unmatched for many seasons of Section 4 football to come, beginning with five consecutive trips to the state championship game.

Forks had last lost a football game on Dec. 1, 2002, when Peter Kohlasch's last-play field goal from 30 yards out sent Harrison to a 22-21 victory in the state final.

The 2003 Blue Devils came back with a 13-0 season and the program's first state title, and the '04 squad made it two in a row with a 13-0 run capped by a 48-0 rout of Rye in the finale.

This year's Devils had, through 12 games and 12 victories, been held to a point total no lower than 21 -- that figure on the scoreboard when games ended against Windsor in Week 6, and against Hornell in the state semifinal, when Forks escaped with a one-point win.

In fact, the last team to hold Forks to as low a total as Sunday's was Peru, a 14-7 winner in the 2001 state final. The Devils had gotten by with a seven-point total the week before, but blanked Bath in the semi.

"They're so quick, flying around," Forks' Rick Mirabito said of Rye. "They had a great scheme to stop our option and they had a great scheme to block our defense, came out and executed the best they could."

"There was no place to run. There weren't a lot of things we could do offensively," said Devils halfback Jim Nicholson.

Forks played without starting running back Jarred Wells, who spent Sunday on crutches as a sideline observer. Wells had averaged 4½ carries per game, though gaining 6.4 yards per running assignment and scoring four touchdowns in the Blue Devils' spread-the-wealth offense.

Coach Kelsey Green took the high road when asked what impact the absence may have had.

"In the scheme of the game? No effect. None," he said, with respect to Wells' ability but equal respect for the job done by Rye's defense.

It was time for Green and his staff to ease into the role of consoling adults when they boarded a bus for the likes of a ride they'd not taken in three years.

"It's a hollow feeling. But it's more looking at your kids," he said. "You see 40 kids there and they're heart-broken. That's when it kicks you in the stomach.

"Yeah, it's going to bother us as a staff, no question about that. But nothing hurts worse than when you look into your kids' eyes when it's final and the loss is there.

"They're young and they'll get over it, I know that. But right now, it hurts."    

Win or lose, it's been a great ride'

Chenango Forks Falls to Rye in State Class B Title Game; Fans' spirits high despite defeat

Rahkia Nance
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin

SYRACUSE -- Initial excitement gave way to anxiety, which was soon replaced by disappointment for hundreds Chenango Forks football fans eager for a win Sunday.

Heidi Langstaff sat on a third row bleacher, chanting "defense," while holding up a white picket fence she made from poster board.

"To see him play means a lot," the Liverpool woman said of younger brother Justin. "It means everything to him."

With Chenango Forks yet to score at halftime, fans remained visibly confident despite the 7-0 scoreboard favoring Rye. But quarter by quarter, fewer and fewer pom-poms were waved in the air. Chants tapered off. The whooping and hollering, screaming and shouting turned quiet as anxious faces became fixated on the last minutes of the state championships.

"It's a hard game," said 49-year-old John Preston, whose son, Josh, played in Sunday's game. "We all knew it would be. We beat them two years in a row, so they want revenge."

He said the Chenango Forks football team would have walked out of the Carrier Dome with their heads high even if they lost because "that's the way champions are."

At the start of the third quarter, Rye High School was leading, 14-7, and Chenango Forks fans were reserved.

Eyes scanned the field, looking for the special number of their son, nephew, grandson or brother.

With fewer than three minutes left in the game, fans rose to their feet in a standing ovation, as teary-eyed players embraced each other on the field.

"You can't be more proud that they got here," said Jim Nicholson, whose sons, Jimmy and Joey, played in the game, "It's been fun watching them the past three years."

Nicholson, 44, and his daughter, Samantha, both wearing Chenango Forks replica jerseys, remained in the bleachers as players were given awards.

"You always get depressed when they lose," Samantha Nicholson said. "It's gonna be a lot of sad football players."

Some Chenango Forks High School students left Syracuse Sunday evening in disappointment, knowing Monday morning would be a quiet one at school.

"I had a feeling we were gonna lose," said Aimee Lescault , a sophomore at Chenango Forks.

Still the championship game was worth the trip, she said.

Some Chenango Forks fans began filing out of the Carrier Dome before the 28-7 score was final.

"You can feel it in the air, it's so bad out here," a girl said into a cell phone at the game's end.

Wiping away tears, Ann Marie Faughnan tried to imagine the kind of disappointment her son, Matt, felt as the first loss of his varsity football career was the last game he'd play wearing the Chenango Forks uniform.

"Win or lose it's been a great ride," said Faughnan, 44. "I think he feels blessed to be a part of something so special."

Matt Faughnan was awarded the defensive player of the year award

"I think he's sad that his high school career is over," she said, watching from the bleachers as he walked off the field. "He has eaten, slept and breathed football since he became a part of the that program in '03."

Fans lingered around the metal railings, offering congratulations to players.

Langstaff leaned over the railing, her white picket fence nearly torn in two halves, waiting to greet her younger brother.

"There's always next year," she said, pumping her fist in the air and smiling. "There's always next year." 

Three & In: Rye state champs
By Kevin Devaney Jr.
The Journal News (Westchester County)
SYRACUSE — Dressed in black from head to toe, the Rye players quietly marched onto the Carrier Dome turf minutes before kickoff as if they were walking into a funeral. They were 38 pallbearers ready to lay the state's longest winning streak to rest, bury their own demons, and carry out the state title that had eluded them the previous two years.
"We were all business," Garnets senior Robert Nieves said. "We didn't come all the way up here again to lose. We were leaving here with a state championship."
Rye left the Carrier Dome last night with a whole lot more than just a plaque and a bunch of shiny medals. Its 28-7 victory over Section 4's Chenango Forks in the Class B title game not only avenged two state final losses to the Blue Devils, but also gave the Garnets the closure they desperately needed.
"We've been waiting for this for 12 months," senior Peter Niehaus said. "People always say, 'Don't look ahead, don't look ahead.' But our focus all during the offseason was on Harrison and on this game."
Rye (12-0) won both this dream season, knocking off the rival Huskies, who went on to win the Class A sectional title, before ending Forks' 38-game winning streak and claiming the school's first state football title.
The fashion in which the Garnets won yesterday, however, was most impressive of all.
Every Rye scoring drive had its own flavor, a different focal point wrapped around a distinctive concept. The Garnets threw the ball at will, mixed up the carries, and were completely unpredictable in the process.
They would use a back five times in a row on one series, then use him as a decoy on the next. They would follow up a play they normally run 10 times per game with one they hadn't called in 10 years.
It was the Garnets' way of saying they weren't just going to win a state championship — they were going to win a state championship whatever way they wanted.
"We were very conservative, wisely, in our play-calling the last few weeks, but we pulled out everything today," Niehaus said. "We had plays that we only ran in this game. ... We brought out the whole kitchen cabinet today. You've got to bring everything in your arsenal."
"We wanted to show all of our different threats," Nieves said. "When you do that, you force them into a guessing game."
The Garnets rode David Telesco to their first score. The senior running back carried the ball the first six plays of the series before Nieves capped the drive with a 1-yard touchdown plunge with 5:49 left in the first quarter.
Rye, which had been shut out by Forks the last two years, opened up the lead early in the third quarter. Niehaus, normally a slot receiver, moved to tailback — something the Garnets did previously only against Harrison. He ran the ball four straight times, picking up 25 yards before catching a 14-yard touchdown pass from Jack Donnelly.
Outside of a 50-yard touchdown run by Forks' Jim Nicholson on the next drive, the Rye defense delivered another commanding performance. The line controlled the game, and Alex Urso and Tim Monaghan had interceptions.
Jay Adams, an overlooked senior linebacker, recorded 12 tackles. He also moved from right guard to left tackle when J.B. Welling was injured in the first half and turned in a strong performance to earn the game's MVP award.
"Jay has been doing that for us all season," Garnets coach Dino Garr said. "I've had some great linebackers in my time, but Jay might be the best I've ever had."
Donnelly left with an ankle injury late in the third quarter but returned to put the game away early in the fourth, tossing a 5-yard touchdown to the 6-foot-5 Monaghan to make it 21-7.
When Urso intercepted a pass with 8:49 left, the celebration on the Rye sideline began.
The Garnets' bench overflowed with excitement in the closing minutes. There was hugging and smiling, but also an aura of relief.
"I can't explain what I'm feeling," Nieves said. "I went from leaving here in tears the last two years to leaving here with a goofy smile on my face."

Hobbled Donnelly does it again

By Kevin Devaney Jr.
The Journal News (Westchester County)

SYRACUSE — If there is one lasting image of Jack Donnelly in a Rye uniform, it will be of him hobbling back onto the field after an injury to make a big play in the big game. He's done it so many times during his two seasons as the Garnets' quarterback. Why would the state final be any different?

There was Donnelly again yesterday, limping off late in the third quarter of a tight game at the Carrier Dome after a Chenango Forks player had landed on his left ankle while he was throwing a block.

Donnelly spent a few minutes on the sideline before returning to throw the game-clinching touchdown and reel in the school's first state football title with a 28-7 win over the two-time defending champion Blue Devils.

"Jack is our general," senior running back Robert Nieves said. "He showed his character here today. He gets hurt, comes right back out and throws a touchdown. It's a symbol of his whole career."

Over the last two seasons, Donnelly has been as tough as they come. He fought off injuries all last season, none worse than in Rye's state semifinal, when he bounced back from a first-half concussion to stage a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback.

Donnelly injured his ankle in the first few minutes of this year's Section 1 final against Briarcliff. When Rye's offense needed a boost later in the half, Donnelly limped back out and, on his first play, threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Peter Niehaus.

"(Donnelly) is such a tough, gutty kid," Rye coach Dino Garr said. "He was really banged up in this game, and I'm going to miss him. He and all these seniors have given Rye something very special."

Initially, yesterday's injury was frightening. Donnelly, a 6-foot-1, 200-pounder, pitched the ball to David Telesco and quickly ran ahead as the lead blocker. Donnelly went down under a pile and instantly felt pain.

"For a second, I thought it was pretty bad," he said. "I couldn't move it, and it got really numb. But I wasn't going to sit down in the state championship."

Donnelly, who completed 5 of 8 passes for 50 yards and two scores, came back out to finish what he'd started. He threw the touchdown to Tim Monaghan and guided the Garnets on another scoring drive before being removed with three minutes to play.

"When Jack comes back in the game, everyone gets so pumped," Monaghan said. "This team is nothing without its quarterback."

Despite playing just two quarters in most games, Donnelly finished the season with 886 yards, completing 63 percent of his passes for 14 touchdowns and only one interception.

"This is the greatest feeling I've ever had in my life," Donnelly said. "Guys were hugging each other on the sideline towards the end, but I didn't want to. I wanted to see the time actually run out and finally be state champs."


Rye team gets revenge

The Garnets finally beat Chenango Forks and win the Class B state championship. 

By Neil Kerr
Syracuse Post-Standard Staff writer

The streak is over.

After winning 38 straight games over three seasons, Southern Tier football power Chenango Forks fell behind early and never caught up Sunday, dropping a 28-7 Class B state championship game to Rye High at the Carrier Dome.

It was the third straight time the two teams met for the Class B crown in the Dome. With the win, coach Dino Garr's Rye Garnets (12-0) gained a measure of revenge for losing by 16-0 and 48-0 to Chenango Forks in the last two state title games.

Rye, 59-2 in its last 61 games, was led by tailback David Telesco (20 carries, 109 yards) and 210-pound fullback Robert Nieves (22-for-85). Together, that pair rushed for 194 yards. That was more than the total offense of 153 yards mustered by Chenango Forks for the game. (website editor note - Rye has not won 59 of its last 61 games. The writer  made an error)

Late in the opening period, Rye earned the only first-half touchdown, driving 49 yards in eight plays, capped by a 1-yard scoring plunge by Nieves.

Rye quarterback Jack Donnelly, who completed 5 of 8 passes for 50 yards and two touchdowns, put the Garnets ahead, 13-0, with a 14-yard TD pass to Peter Niehaus with 6:29 left in the third period. Sebastian Saunders then kicked one of his four PAT conversions.

Three minutes later, Chenango Forks (12-1) scored its final touchdown of the season when halfback Jim Nicholson ran 50 yards down the left sideline for six points.

After Donnelly passed 5 yards to Tim Monaghan for a 21-7 lead with 10:21 remaining to play, the final Rye TD was set up when Garnets' safety Alex Urso intercepted a Rick Mirabito pass with 8:49 to play. Minutes later, Rye scored its final touchdown.

Forks quarterback Mirabito completed one of six pass attempts for 26 yards against a tough Rye defense that was led by the tackling of linebacker Jay Adams. Adams, who was in on 12 tackles, was named the game's "Most Valuable Player."

Fifth Quarter:     Published on Tuesdays

Sidney gets a taste of what Forks got used to

By Kevin Stevens
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin

Finality was served to Southern Tier playoff participants in dissimilar forms on the closing weekend of high school football in the Carrier Dome.

Cotton candy-sweet was Sidney's 48-21 dismantling of Dobbs Ferry on Saturday for an 11th consecutive victory and New York's Class C championship.

For Chenango Forks, it was a relative chomp on an habanera pepper, a jolt of a 28-7 loss Sunday against Rye for the Class B title that brought painful conclusion to the program's Section 4-record 38 victories in succession.

In each ballgame, the better team was awarded the champion's plaque — not always the case when a state title boils down to 48 minutes of football.

On Saturday, Sidney was true to 2005 form, stringing points as if they were tiny lights on an evergreen and doing so against the defending state champion and winner of 24 in a row.

Week 13 was transformed into a final-chapter showcase for the Warriors, most notably their triumvirate of leading playmakers who'd shone season-long and who punctuated a championship they'd been so instrumental in making possible.

Seniors Aaron Zurn, Pat Simonds and Kyle Morenus were directly responsible for 40 of their team's points in a game the Warriors led by two or more scores from the moment they struck for a second TD midway into the second quarter.

"I think it was around the second quarter when they figured out that it's pretty hard to stop our offense," Simonds said. "To see a team like Dobbs with its great tradition kind of back on their heels a little bit, it was pretty breath-taking.

"It was pretty crazy out there."

In a different sense, it was pretty crazy out there on Sunday as well, watching a Chenango Forks offense given to machine-like production in recent years operating as if laboring up a steep incline and into a sustained bad-hair wind.

Where Forks attempted to venture offensively, Rye's guys were there, again and again and again. Take away Jim Nicholson's third-quarter sprint from a yard shy of midfield for his team's only TD and the Blue Devils were left a 76-yard rushing total.

Imagine an auctioneer with laryngitis, or a hurdler competing wearing ankle weights; it about sizes up Forks' ability to put up points with a ground game jammed into neutral by a defense that was simply better.

"It wasn't one kid making a tackle, it was 4-5 kids on every single tackle," Forks senior Matt Faughnan said.

And perhaps it was more than well-designed defensive scheme alone that had the Blue Devils bottled up like flat Mountain Dew. Read the words of Garnets senior Peter Niehaus, whose acceptance of a sportsmanship award postgame was preceded by quality play as linebacker and running back:

"I think the biggest difference from last year (a 48-0 Forks carving of Rye in the final) was, we lifted so much more during the season. Last year, they just manhandled us, they were so much stronger than us. We matched them man-for-man this year; we pushed them back."

The afternoon before, Sidney did its share of pushing and shoving and impeding, with 6-foot-7 Jordan Tuttel and mates up front holding up their end so that "The Triplets" could do their thing.

But brute force is merely one piece of the puzzling picture that is Sidney's offense, which operates behind a philosophy built in part around deception — just as Dobbs Ferry linebacker Mark Kalaba discovered.

"With their offense, it was hard to see where the ball was with them all close together," Kalaba said. "We practiced hard and we thought we knew what was going on, but during the game it was hard to read the ball."

Several members of Sidney's championship cast were asked: Had Class C state supremacy been suggested on Day 1 of preseason, how might you have reacted?

"I knew we had a great team, but I didn't know it'd be this good at the time," said Tuttel, who is leaning toward attending Cornell University. "But we worked hard, week after week we got better, and this is how it turned out."

Simonds: "I don't think it was out of the question."

Alex McLean: "You go into a season thinking, 'We can do this.' But to actually do it, you can't even describe."

As for the Garnets of Rye, hungry for title-game success after being held scoreless by Forks in the previous two, they had a notion that this might be their breakthrough year.

"We felt very strongly that we didn't want to get in a position to let them get ahead of us again," coach Dino Garr said. "We felt strongly that with our experience of being here, that hopefully we could play our kind of game and not get involved with their game."

Indeed, Rye played its game, and sent Chenango Forks' unprecedented string of victories into the past tense.

•The Streak: Section 4-record 38 victories.
•First Win: 19-0 over Elmira Free Academy (Sept. 6, 2003).
•Final Win: 21-20 over Hornell (Nov. 19, 2005).
•The End: 28-7 loss to Rye (Nov. 27, 2005).
•Points Scored-Allowed: 1,267-281.
•Shutouts: Nine.
•Playoff Wins: 13.
•State Titles: Two.

To be the best, Rye beat the best

By Rick Carpiniello
The Journal News (Westchester County)

SYRACUSE — This place known as the Carrier Dome had become "the Pequod" for Rye coach Dino Garr and all the kids who had been part of the football program, or who had brothers on the team, since 2003.

Their Moby Dick was Chenango Forks, the great beast of high school football in New York State.

OK, maybe that's silly symbolism and literary jibber jabber. But make no mistake, Rye was consumed with chasing and beating Chenango Forks — with taking down the reigning New York powerhouse and its state-best 38-game winning streak — as much as it was driven to win its own state championship.

Well, Rye harpooned and reeled in the big prize yesterday, and really couldn't have done one without the other. The only way to the first football state title in school history was through Forks. That's the only way Rye would have wanted it.

See, Forks had it all. Two straight Class B championships and a dynastic five straight trips to the state finals, including yesterday's game. The Blue Devils had won 38 in a row — Dobbs Ferry lost its 24-game winning streak Saturday, so the two longest streaks in the state went down within 25 hours of one another, and now Class D state champ Randolph has the longest at 16.

"All those things," Garr, the 30-year coach, said. "Obviously they beat us (twice) to be 38 in a row. Otherwise we'd be 38 in a row.

"We beat the team that's beaten us twice and taken away our chance to be state champions. What they've done is incredible — incredible — and we're a part of that. So now we're part of the other side, and it feels good."

The Garnets came here in 2003 with a senior-laden team and lost a game that was closer than the 16-0 score. They somehow found the gumption to go undefeated the next year all the way back to the Dome, with a sophomore- and junior-laden team, and got wiped out 48-0 by the Forks. And they dug even deeper to go undefeated again all the way to this Forks in the road.

This time it was 28-7 Rye. This time the Garnets didn't leave with the tears and pains of coming so close. This time Garr held the state-shaped plaque over his head. This time the job got finished.

"Oh, man," senior Tim Monaghan said. "I can't even describe this. We've said it before: This year wouldn't have been anything if we didn't win this game. We came here the past two years, and we know what it's like to win semifinals, but we wanted to win this.

"You always thought about it. We were all intimidated because we'd never scored on this team, and they're a great program. Year after year, they produce phenomenal athletes. But this was just our year. We've had three years to kind of come up here and get the feel for things. This year we weren't afraid at all. We came up here confident. We knew we could do the job, and we just played our hearts out."

He was asked if a state championship over another opponent would have meant less.

"Yes," he said quickly. "Definitely. We were rooting for them the whole time. The Hornell game (a 21-20 Forks semifinal victory), we heard the score (updates) and we were rooting for them. We wanted to play them again and get our revenge. It made it more sweet."

That has been part of the weight Rye has had to bear since the 2003 final. Maybe some Rye players and/or coaches might have been hoping Forks would go down before a third meeting.

"Some guys didn't really care, some did, but when we knew they were in the semifinals and we were in the semifinals, we wanted them to win," quarterback Jack Donnelly said. "We wanted to beat them for the title. They're one of the best programs in the state. We want to get to the point where we could have — like them — that many consecutive wins, that many championships.

"For the past two years, even though we were so successful and the teams were so great, it was still like, 'We lost to Forks.' Or, especially last year, 'Forty-eight to nothing to Forks.' That's what people remembered. Coming into this game, it was like, 'Here we are again, senior year, playing Forks in the Dome.' We had to win. We had to win. It's the greatest feeling I've ever had."

As Garr said, if not for Forks, Rye would be Forks. The Garnets are 36-2 the last three seasons, and it doesn't need to be noted again where the two losses came from.

"Them beating us the last two years, we had to beat them this year," said senior Alex Urso, whose brother Eddie starred for the 2003 runners-up. "It's the best feeling beating a team that whupped us the last two years. This is for the teams that failed the last two years."

Chenango Forks coach Kelsey Green pointed out the other similarity. His team had lost state finals in 2001 (14-7 to Peru) and 2002 (22-21 to Rye's archrival, Harrison) before getting back to the Dome for a third time and a charm of a championship.

"Yeah, they're in the exact same spot we were," Green said. "We had two seasons that we hadn't lost a game, and then we lost two straight state finals. And we got back to the third one and hadn't lost a game and we finally won that one. So maybe they'll be back next year and the next year. It sure does take a lot (to keep getting back)."

He praised Garr and the Rye kids for their resolve and persistence. Garr had also been here in 1993, the first year of the state playoffs, and lost 36-19 to Caledonia-Mumford. Yesterday, John Nugent, who was Rye's head coach when Garr first started out on the staff, made the trip from his Arizona home to see the school finally break through.

Garr said that only the births of his daughters topped this. He said the team started to think about being the Buffalo Bills or the pre-championship Denver Broncos.

"All our teams carry a burden," Garr said.

This was a whale of a victory.

Forks, Rye get set for round three

Blue Devils 2-0 vs. Garnets in final

By Kevin Stevens
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin
Rye High School has produced a perfect football record from the start of the 2003 season to the present -- excluding the outcomes of its two confrontations with Chenango Forks.
The programs will collide for a third consecutive year in the Class B state championship game beginning at 3 this afternoon in Syracuse's Carrier Dome.
Forks, 12-0, two-time defending state champion and winner of 38 consecutive games, dispatched the Garnets by a combined score of 64-0 over the last two years.
As for those two Rye squads? They came into the state finals having averaged 27.5 points per game (last year) and 32.8 per game (in 2003). This time around, the Garnets -- who hail from Westchester County -- have put 34.9 per game on the board and are coming off a 41-8 semifinal rout of Lansingburgh in which they gained 424 rushing yards to 174 total yards for Lansingburgh.
"Obviously, there must be a little bit of doubt in the backs of their minds," Forks coach Kelsey Green said, given the nature of the teams' head-to-head history. "But if I were (Rye coach Dino) Garr, I wouldn't talk much about those games. I'd be focusing on what they've got to do this year."
And this year Rye's roster is stocked with names that will be familiar to Forks, as the Garnets returned from last season the bulk of their first-unit ball handlers.
The '05 Garnets, who've surrendered 83 points all season, will bump into a Forks team that narrowly slipped past Hornell in the semifinal round, 21-20, when a last-minute Red Raiders field goal try sailed wide of the mark.
Asked if his team had gotten away with one in the semi, Green said, "I guess you'd have to say we did. They controlled the clock, the ball -- everything."
Today's mission for Forks defenders will be containing a Rye team comfortable advancing the football on the ground or through the air.
The Garnets' offensive strength is found in its backfield.
Robert Nieves has rushed for 1,045 yards and David Telesco 746, each averaging above 6.5 yards per carry. Nieves ran for 192 yards and scored five touchdowns in the semifinal against Lansingburgh.
The quarterback is Jack Donnelly, a double-threat performer whose average rush has gone for 7.13 yards and who has completed 63 percent of his passes for 836 yards and 12 TDs. No. 1 target for Donnelly is Tim Monaghan, who has turned one-third of his 24 receptions into touchdowns, and whose average catch has gained 18.83 yards.
Nieves has scored a team-leading 19 touchdowns, and three teammates have added six or more.
"All their skill kids seem to be returning," Green said. "I think it's similar to our team a year ago."
Forks' run-oriented offense includes four players who've rushed for 669 or more yards this season, headed by senior halfback Jim Nicholson's 848 and quarterback Rick Mirabito's 805. But that unit had its troubles against Hornell, and the Blue Devils' 203 total yards marked the team's low since Week 6 against Windsor.
"Defensively, Rye is very, very quick," Green said. "They're all within 5 yards (of the line of scrimmage), right there, and you have to stay on your blocks."
The Blue Devils will take the field today having won 62 of their last 64 games, and the postseason finale will mark the program's fifth consecutive appearance in the state championship game.
"I just cannot even comprehend where we are," Green said of Forks' success from 2001 to the present. "You look back and see how many things that could have happened and things would have been different."
Rye hopes to break Chenango Forks hex
By Josh Thomson
The Journal News (Westchester County)
RYE — Just after practice earlier this week, Tim Monaghan sat stoically on the wooden gym bleachers at Rye Middle School. He held his helmet between his knees and gently nodded his head, looking every bit like a man who could walk through an emergency room without so much as raising his pulse.
In this ultra-cool state, it didn't take much thought for the Rye wide receiver to decipher exactly why his Garnets were shutout victims in the last two state championship games.
In fact, Monaghan felt comfortable enough to invoke the "C" word, sports' dirty, five-letter curse.
"We'll definitely have to keep our cool and not choke," he said.
Tim, you really mean choke?
"Yeah, we choked. I can't think of any other word to describe it."
It's not that Monaghan means any disrespect to or is trying to diminish the accomplishments of five-time Section 4 champ Chenango Forks, which the Garnets face again tomorrow in the Class B state championship game. But after losing 16-0 in 2003 and 48-0 in 2004, Rye enters the Carrier Dome with two demons to slay.
First, of course, is Forks' 38-game winning streak. But perhaps more important, the Garnets must overcome the negative stigma accompanying those two shutout losses.
It may be their most difficult task yet.
"With what's happened the last two years, we definitely have a little psychological thing with them," quarterback Jack Donnelly said. "It's important for us to come out and show we can play with them."
The most dramatic difference in the last two championship games has been the number of giveaways. In 2003, Rye lost two fumbles and threw a costly interception. Last year, the Garnets had an interception and faltered on six of eight fourth-down conversions, which hurt them in the battle for field position. The Blue Devils had no turnovers in either game.
After the Garnets (11-0) beat Section 2's Lansingburgh 41-8 this past weekend and moved on to prepare for Forks, the players sat down and watched film of last year's final for the first time ever.
The tape actually surprised them because the first half wasn't nearly as cringe-inducing as they'd remembered. In fact, were it not for the mistakes and failed execution on big plays, Rye may have been in the game.
Said Monaghan: "In the first half we were with them."
To some, that type of consolation doesn't matter.
"Forty-eight-nothing is still 48-0," junior Franny Archibald said.
As they readied for the championship last year, the Garnets knew they were banged up and that the Blue Devils, who had several key players back from 2003, were smoking hot. Rye, in addition to injuries, was missing 22 seniors.
By game time, the Garnets had few expectations.
"Two years ago, I don't know how the team felt because I didn't play that much," Monaghan said. "But I know last year we were all intimidated."
At least on the surface, Rye appears to have no such misgivings this time. Their first-team defense has allowed just two touchdowns, one in the first half to Briarcliff and one last week to Lansingburgh. Their offense, led by Donnelly, Monaghan, fullback Robert Nieves and a dominant line, has rarely needed more than two quarters to polish off a rout.
So maybe if the opponent weren't Forks, the town of Rye may be busy puffing its chest, talking about its team outscoring opponents 384-83. But that's not about to happen, not with the Blue Devils still left standing.
"Until we beat them, they are the champs," coach Dino Garr said. "That's how we approach it."
Obviously, Garr, he of the 201 wins, wasn't as emotionally forthcoming as his players, many of whom enter the last football game of their careers. The coach downplayed the last two championship losses because they have no bearing on this year.
"The past is the past," he said.
But Garr can't hide the feeling that there's still a one-sidedness in his team's rivalry with Forks.
Even former players have admitted it — winning this year would end that once and for all.
"This is the ultimate finish phase for us," Garr said. "Now we just have to finish it. There's definitely some unfinished business between us."

Rye back for another try
By Josh Thomson
The Journal News (Westchester County)
RYE — Amid the building drama of last year's state semifinal, Jack Donnelly couldn't think straight.
And, please, don't think that's some metaphor on the emotions swirling inside his head during the biggest game of his career. No, Donnelly, the Rye quarterback, really couldn't think straight. Because of searing pain of a shoulder that was partially separated shoulder the following week and the building buzz of a mild concussion, Donnelly could hardly focus on translating plays to his huddle.
"Each game last year was 48 minutes down to the end," he said. "I remember getting plays from the sideline (in that game) and feeling absolutely dead."
Thinking back, Donnelly's play may have helped the Garnets pull out a 21-14 victory over Ravena and advance to a second-straight state championship game. It also may have cost Rye any chance of competing with Chenango Forks the following week.
Without Donnelly at full strength, and with injuries dulling the impact of several other key players, the game turned ugly as Forks rolled up a 48-0 win.
Today's trip to Syracuse should be different in that regard. Even when you consider 2003, running backs Eddie Urso and Will Donahue, the team's primary offensive weapons, had limped into the final, which Forks won 16-0.
Not only will the Garnets begin today's game with the best team they've had in the last three years, they do so healthy and well-rested.
Said Donnelly: "I think when you are more or less 100 percent in a big game it gives you a chance to come in with a different attitude."
Though Donnelly can both run and throw with equal success, he hasn't done much of either since the Section 1 Class B semifinals against Edgemont. Donnelly threw for 111 yards and three touchdowns in that game, but twisted his ankle on the first defensive series against Briarcliff the following week.
A gimpy Donnelly (836 yards, 12 TD's passing; 285 yards, 4 TD's rushing) attempted four passes that game, two in the state quarterfinals, and just one in last week's 41-8 romp over Lansingburgh in the semis.
Quite honestly, Donnelly's arm hasn't been necessary and it's given him ample time to recover.
"For us, it's great knowing that we go on the field with the person we look to to make a big play," senior Franny Archibald said.
Similarly, fullback Robert Nieves (1,045 yards, 19 TD's) aggravated a strained calf against Burke Catholic in the state quarterfinals. All he did to recover was run for 192 yards and five touchdowns the following week.
Even Garr admitted that his team's good health gives him a sense of confidence heading into today. This is the Rye team's he's had all year, not a version watered-down by bumps and bruises.
"It's a big plus for us," coach Dino Garr said. "In the playoffs we've been fortunate to get some rest because we've played a lot of people."

Rye-Chenango Forks scouting report
By The Journal News (Westchester County)
Rye (11-0) vs. Section 4's Chenango Forks (12-0)
When: Tomorrow, 5 p.m.
Where: Carrier Dome, Syracuse
Key players: Rye — Robert Nieves, Sr., FB; Jack Donnelly, Sr., QB/S; Jay Adams, Sr., G/LB. Chenango Forks — Rick Mirabito, Sr., QB/DB; Matt Faughnan, Sr., OL/DL; Jim Nicholson, Sr., FB/LB.
Key matchup: Rye defense vs. Chenango Forks offensive line. Rye's starting defense has dominated all year, allowing only two touchdowns. This will be the biggest team it's faced — even bigger than Harrison.
When Rye has the ball: Though Nieves has shined in the playoffs, expect to finally see more of Donnelly. He's thrown just seven passes in the last three games combined, but he's always on the money. Healthy once again, Donnelly can add a whole new dimension to an already scary Rye offense.
When Chenango Forks has the ball: The two-time Class B state champ continues to follow the same plan. Forks is big (Faughnan is 6-foot-3, 301 pounds, Josh Cary is 6-5, 288), runs the option and spreads the ball around. If the offense can push Rye around, which no one else has done, Forks will be in good shape.
Outlook: This, of course, is these teams' third straight meeting in the state final, but never have they entered it in such fashion. Rye destroyed Section 2's Lansingburgh 41-8 in a game that could've been much worse, while Forks edged Section 5's Hornell 21-20, only winning when Hornell's kicker missed a 27-yard field goal with 18 seconds remaining. In 2003, the Garnets lost 16-0. They fell 48-0 in 2004. If Rye can overcome the weight of that dubious history — and Forks' state-best 38-game winning streak — this seems to be its best chance to win a title.
