On This Day In History | 1997

November 15, 2010

After a 6-2 regular season the football team qualified for its 1st playoff game since entering Section XI in 1973.  In a Division IV Semifinal game at Mt. Sinai.  On a cold and rainy day the Bears won in a mud bowl over the Mustangs, 18-13, for the 1st and only playoff victory in program history.  Two touchdowns by All-County receiver Jon Marvin and a score by Sean Metz helped propel the blue and white to the historic win.

Marvin finished with 6 catches for 118 yards.

Stony Brook Rolls

From the very beginning and throughout, Stony Brook looked very much like a football team making its first appearance in a playoff game. But the way the Bears responded to adversity was more reminiscent of seasoned veterans.

Kenney was 8 of 12 for 146 yards and had three touchdown passes to lead No. 3 Stony Brook to an 18-13 win over second-seeded Mt. Sinai yesterday in a Division IV semifinal. The Bears (7-2) will play at top-seeded Babylon for the division title at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
