The N. Rockland Red Raiders football team salvaged their season, emerging victorious with a 35-34 overtime victory over Clarkstown North (New City) at North Rockland High School Saturday, October 8.  The win gave the Raiders a .500 regular season and qualified them for eighth seed in the Section 1 playoffs, good enough to host one more home game.

It will be deja vu all over again as the Raiders host ninth-seeded Clarkstown North at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, October 15. Raiders earned a home playoff game despite having a lesser record than North (4-2) because power rankings weigh quality victories and head-to-head match-up victoriess when seeding teams.

In all 16 out of 20 teams qualify for the sectional playoffs.
