Three hours before kickoff time on Saturday, Harrison Downs received the word. Riverhead High School football coach Leif Shay pulled Downs aside and told him that he was the emergency backup quarterback that day.

In a playoff tuneup for both teams, visiting Sayville defeated Shoreham, 25-22, 25-18, 25-19, in a Suffolk County League VI match.

The forecast wasn’t good — for the weather or the Riverhead High School football team’s playoff prospects.

Still, remarkably enough, Riverhead entered Saturday’s game with a chance to get into the playoffs. Yes, the same Blue Waves who stood in 11th place in Suffolk County Division II with only one win to their name.
