East Hampton High’s junior varsity football team finished with a 7-1 record Monday, as Shoreham-Wading River, which was to be the Bonackers’ opponent that evening at East Hampton’s Herrick Park, forfeited because, according to East Hampton’s coach, Joe McKee, “they didn’t have enough players.”
A brief intrasquad game was played instead. McKee, who intends to field a varsity and a junior varsity next year, said the jayvee won 20-6 at Port Jefferson on Oct. 29, the team’s ultimate game, as it turned out.
East Hampton’s junior high team, coached by Dave Fioriello, Andrew Daige, and Rob Rivera, defeated Center Moriches 25-2 here Friday to finish at 5-0-1. East Hampton’s scorers in that game were Charlie Corwin, Michael Locascio (two TDs), and Nick Ward, on a 1-yard plunge.
