Sports Flash: Patriots Football Gets OT Victory; Seawolves Roll in Big South Opener

A look at how local sports teams fared on Friday and Saturday.


Ward Melville 27, Lindenhurst 21: The Patriots improve to 4-1 after Brendan Nieves blocked Lindenhurst's 38-yard overtime field goal attempt and Jake Biro's 28-yard run set up the gamewinning play, a 1-yard run by Brendan Hegarty. According to MSG Varsity, Ward Melville trailed 21-7 at halftime, later tying the game when Biro threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Brendan Dooley in the third quarter.

Stony Brook 49, Charleston Southern 7: Kyle Essington threw five touchdown passes, including a 29-yard throw to Kevin Norrell and a 27-yard throw to Jordan Gush, to help Stony Brook improve to 5-1 overall, 1-0 in Big South conference play. Miguel Maysonet, who totaled 88 yards, set new records as the all-time leading rusher in both Stony Brook and Big South history. Head coach Chuck Priore said: "I told Kyle (Essington) we might be passing more based on what we saw on film. The ability of this offense is its balance. As long as we continue to do what's working, I'm content."
