Varsity Football Unseats Defending State Champs, JV Cruises to Victor over Crusaders

It truly was, as Athletic Director Bernard Mahoney is fond of saying, "a great day to be a Gael." The JV got things started with a 42-6 victory over the Crusaders in the morning and then, in its home opener, varsity capped an epic comeback in overtime with a touchdown and two-point conversion, followed by key defensive stop for a 36-34 win.

Iona Prep football now holds the No. 1 spot in the latest Journal News football rankings, with senior Jimaar Edwards earning Athlete of the Week and CHSFL Player of the Week honors for his 11 tackles, four tackles for a loss and fourth-quarter interception that he returned 20 yards for the game-tying touchdown.
