Hurricane Football Easily Tops West Babylon, Will Host Comsewogue In Playoff Opener This Friday Night

Oct 30, 2018 1:35 PM

The Westhampton Beach football team has now had back-to-back undefeated regular seasons, and the quest for back-to-back undefeated postseasons starts this Friday night.

The Hurricanes won, 54-14, at West Babylon on Friday night to finish their regular season at a perfect 8-0. They are riding a 20-game winning streak since the start of last season, and are the top seed in the Suffolk County Division III playoffs, set to host No. 8 Comsewogue in the opener this Friday, November 2, at 6 p.m. It’s unclear who the Canes could play in the following round since teams are re-seeded, but if they defeat Comsewogue this week they will host their second-round game.

After its 41-0 victory over Miller Place on October 19, and Fridays night’s blowout, Westhampton Beach appears to be in a good groove heading into the playoffs. Jaden AlfanoStJohn rushed for 162 yards and three touchdowns on just five carries against Comsewogue. He scored on a pair of long runs—from 70 yards on the first offensive play of the game and an 80-yard run in the third. AlfanoStJohn, a junior, also scored from three yards out in the first half.

Tyler Nolan, a senior, returned to the lineup after missing the previous game against Miller Place and scored a pair of touchdowns—a 15-yard run in the first and a 35-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Clarke Lewis in the third. Paul Boutin, another senior, also caught a touchdown pass from Lewis, a 50-yard strike in the first that put Westhampton Beach up, 20-0. Junior linebacker Shavar Coffey led the defense with 10 tackles and a fumble recovery.

Westhampton Beach will be playing Comsewogue for the first time this season when the two teams meet on Friday night. The Warriors finished the regular season 5-3 with 109.20 power points. They have averaged more than 42 points in their victories this season, but all of them were against non-playoff teams.
