Railsplitters roll over Tech in regular-season finale

Lincoln’s football team wrapped up the regular season with one of its most impressive offensive performances of the year, rolling to a 44–0 victory over Brooklyn Tech on Nov. 4.

The Railsplitters (6–3) jumped out to a 36-point lead in the first half, and the squad refused to take its foot off the metaphorical gas down the stretch. By the final whistle, Lincoln racked up 404 total offensive yards, averaging more than nine yards every time the ball was snapped.

Faruq Shittu went eight-for-13 under center, throwing for 100 yards and two touchdowns, while senior running back Naim Coakley was a picture of efficiency, rushing for 113 yards and two touchdowns on just five carries. Anthony Khan and Shittu also chipped in rushing touchdowns.

Marcus Tinglin led Lincoln’s defensive charge with a team-high six tackles, but Ricky Forde wasn’t far behind with five takedowns of his own.

The Railsplitters wrapped up the No. 5 seed in the Public Schools Athletic League championship conference with the win and will host Boys & Girls High School in the first round of postseason play on Nov. 12.

Tottenville 7

Grand Street 6

The Wolves offense was held in check during the final game of the regular season on Nov. 4. Darius Thompson scored the only Grand Street touchdown of the afternoon — returning a punt to the end zone — while Dylan Campbell did his best to jumpstart the ground game with 90 rushing yards.

Grand Street’s defense had a difficult time slowing down the Pirates’ aerial attack as well, allowing Tottenville quarterback Jason Feldman to throw for 128 yards and one touchdown.

Grand Street Campus will host New Dorp in the first round of the Public Schools Athletic League playoffs on Nov. 12.

Boys & Girls 42

Canarsie 8

The Kangaroos scored 22 points in the first quarter and never looked back, rolling to a lopsided victory in the regular-season finale on Nov. 6.

Eric Anderson did his best to spark Canarsie, throwing for 78 yards and one touchdown, while also adding a rushing touchdown — but it wasn’t quite enough for the squad.

Boys & Girls wrapped up a playoff berth with the victory as the No. 12 seed. The squad will travel to fifth-seeded Lincoln for a first-round matchup on Nov. 12.

Sheepshead Bay 12

Tilden 6

The Sharks scored the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter to notch the Bowl Conference victory in the final week of the regular season. Nimar Roach scored Tilden’s lone touchdown of the day, connecting with Joel Dick in the end zone.

The two squads will get another chance at each other in the postseason, however, facing off in the first round of the playoffs on Nov. 13.

Jefferson 18

Madison 14
