Hastings Loses Lead, Falls to Tuckahoe

TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – The Hastings Yellow Jackets waited patiently through a long evening of homecoming celebrations at Tuckahoe High School Saturday and nearly spoiled the Tigers day before giving up a lead and falling 37-22.

“We played well on offense and they answered and we played well on defense and they did too,” said Hastings running back Brandon Abrahante, whose 3-yard touchdown run gave the Yellow Jackets a 22-18 lead in the third quarter. “The game could have gone one way or the other. We had our chance late and couldn’t get that first down.”

The Tigers (4-2) won their second straight game and headed into next week’s regular-season finale with their focus on the upcoming Class D postseason playoffs, while Hastings fell to 2-4 and will finish its regular season with a homecoming game against Magnus next Saturday.

Tuckahoe broke out to a 12-0 lead on touchdown runs by Shyheim Nixon and Gary Moss, but the Jackets fought back to make the score 12-6 on a nifty 9-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Rob Hevia  to receiver Matt Adipietro. The two connected again on the two-point conversion to pull Hastings to within 12-8.

Reisman scored the first of his two touchdowns on an 11-yard blast to give the Tigers an 18-8 lead before Hevia and Adipietro connected again from 8 yards to make the score 18-16.

Hastings came out of the halftime inspired and moved the ball into scoring position where Abrahante’s 3-yard run five minutes in the third quarter gave the Jackets their first and only lead at 22-18. But Reisman scored again to give the Tigers the lead at 24-22.

Hastings had one more opportunity to spoil homecoming when they moved into Tigers territory with less than five minutes remaining in the game, but failed on a fourth down play and turned the ball over to the Tigers.

Kayvon Reid scored on an 11-yard run with 1:40 remaining in the game for a 30-22 Tigers lead and Moss returned an interception 38 yards to close out the scoring at 37-22.
