Kenney rears back vs. Southampton in ’95

On this day nineteen years ago, Derek Kenney had an afternoon for the ages.

The sophomore quarterback broke school records in passing yards and touchdown passes in a single game as the Bears defeated Mercy 25-12 to improve to 2-0. Kenney torched the Monarchs for 320 yards and 4 touchdowns, topping his own records of 277 yards and 3 touchdowns set a season before.

Spencer Niebuhr was Kenney’s primary target, reeling in 7 catches for 149 yards. Marc Vega chipped in with 8 catches for 133 yards. Jae Yul Lee and Jake Kenney were the defensive catalysts, accumulating 9 tackles each.

Kenney would obliterate his passing record a little over a month later, amassing 466 yards vs. Bayport-Blue Point, a mark that still stands as the 5th most in Long Island history.
