Erasmus Hall remains unbeaten after it rallied to narrowly escape a major scare from South Shore.

The Dutchmen came back from 12 points down to best the visiting Vikings 14–12 in Public School Athletic League football last Sunday. Erasmus got a one-yard touchdown run from Aaron Grant in the first quarter to slim the South Shore lead to 12–7.

Grant made both of his extra points and completed 12 of 19 passes for 146 yards. Andre Francis and Tysene Foster each recorded three sacks for Erasmus (6–0).
