Blog Recap: Wildcats fall 21-0 at Mount Sinai to end season

BILL LANDON FILE PHOTO | Shoreham quarterback Danny Hughes leads the Wildcats into the Division IV semifinals tonight against Mount Sinai.

The Shoreham-Wading River Wildcats have already made history this season. They earned the first home playoff game in program history. Then they won their first-ever playoff game with a dominant victory over The Stony Brook School last weekend in the first round of the Division IV playoffs.

Tonight, they get a chance to make some more history.

The Wildcats have never beaten the Mount Sinai Mustangs, the team they’ll face tonight on the road in the semifinals with a trip to the county finals on the line. Kick-off is set for 6 p.m. at Mount Sinai High School. It’ll be the first night game at Mount Sinai this year after budget cuts forced the school to play all its home games during the day in the regular season and first round of the playoffs.

The teams last met in the playoffs in 2006. The Mustangs won that game 27-3.

Shoreham (7-2) and Mount Sinai (8-1) squared off in Week 2 this season. The Mustangs won 28-0.

Mount Sinai comes into tonight’s game off a victory over the defending Long Island champions, John Glenn, 20-13.

The winner of tonight’s game advances to the Division IV county finals at 4 p.m. Nov. 25. The other semifinal matchup features top-seeded Babylon (9-0) against McGann-Mercy (7-2). That game will be 1 p.m. Saturday.
