PORT CHESTER, N.Y. Port Chester High will try to recover from its first loss of the football season when it travels to Peekskill Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
The Rams are coming off a 21-0 shutout at the hands of Brewster, but they get a break versus winless Peekskill, which is playing its first home game of the season.
Each Rams win this season has come by a thin margin, and the defense has led the way. They defeated Spring Valley in their opener, 14-12, and then edged Byram Hills, 21-20, in perhaps one of the wildest high school football games in Westchester in recent memory.
The Red Devils are 0-3 and have struggled mightily. They have scored just 12 points in three games and suffered a 42-0 loss to Hackley in week two.
Peekskill is coming off a 21-6 loss to Saunders in which the lone bright spot was a 67-yard touchdown pass from Ayo Jegede to Ramon Searight. The Red Devils also struggled on defense, giving up 148 yards to Saunders Francisco Wilson-King and 118 yards to quarterback Kristian Prenga.
Port Chester will likely prove too much for Peekskill, which has struggled against worse teams than the Rams and been dominated by teams at or above Port Chesters caliber.
