YONKERS, N.Y. -- Following Scarsdale’s thrilling overtime win in week three against White Plains, the Raiders did not allow themselves a lengthy celebration.
Scarsdale immediately turned its focus to Lincoln to keep the momentum rolling and the Raiders would use this to steamroll the Lancers, 41-0 in a Section 1 Class AA football game Sunday.
Senior and captain John Cappello ran for 103 yards and two touchdowns in his first action at fullback this season. Cappello has been playing nose guard in place of an injured teammate. Senior and captain Andrew Verboys Jr. completed 8 of 15 passes for 164 yards and two scores. Senior Robert Plummer, who scored three touchdowns against White Plains, caught four passes for 88 yards.
“We came into the game knowing that we had to treat Lincoln like we treated White Plains,” Plummer said. “We wanted to come out firing because this was an important game in our season.”
Cappello opened the scoring in the first quarter with a touchdown, then Verboys Jr. had a touchdown run and threw a 42-yard strike to Patrick Clarke in the second quarter.
Plummer and the team were happy to see Cappello move back to his natural position.
“John is a true fullback, but he has been filling in at nose guard because of an injury,” Plummer said. “He has wanted to play fullback all season, but he made a huge sacrifice for the team. To see him have a good game at fullback was very gratifying.”
