PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Head coach Greg Domestico arrives daily at Port Chester's varsity football practice knowing one major aspect of his team is always there.
The heart and resiliency of this team is amazing, Domestico said. They never quit, and they never get down on the each other.
As a result, Port Chester is off to a 2-0 start and will look for win number three as it hosts 2-0 Brewster at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Both teams are coming off emotional wins. Port Chester defeated Byram Hills, 21-20, despite running just two offensive plays in the second half while Brewster overcame Nyack in double overtime.
Domestico was proud of his teams performance last week, but did remind them something has to change.
We obviously cant win every week if the other team runs three times as many plays as us, Domestico said. We want to limit Brewsters offensive snaps because they are explosive. Our biggest concern is their passing game. They have a great quarterback and fast receivers who can catch the ball.
Port Chester has equaled its win total from last year. A victory against Brewster would strengthen the Rams sectional playoff hopes.
The kids understand the importance of this game and what lies ahead if we are successful, Domestico said. They are learning how to deal with winning and deal with the pressure as they go.
