PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- When the Port Chester varsity football team gathered for practice Monday, the Rams realized one thing immediately.
The players and coaches were upset with the way we played because we had opportunities to score, but we made mistakes and committed penalties which stalled our drives, said Port Chester coach Greg Domestico of the 26-0 loss to Brewster in week three. We felt we could have played much better. Our players are hungry to get back out on the field and show they can play better.
Domestico said the team has addressed this in preparation for its game against winless Peekskill at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
The Rams, currently 2-1, would strengthen their post-season chances with a win.
Practice has been very good this week, Domestico said. We have gone back and done some fundamental drills that we did in the preseason. We felt that we developed some bad habits the last few weeks that we had to correct.
Even though Peekskill is 0-3, Domestico is wary of the Red Devils. Former Horace Greeley football coach Bill Tribou is an assistant at Peekskill, which added credibility to the program.
Peekskill is a dangerous team, Domestico said. You can see the coaches have made them a more disciplined team.
