Fort Hamilton’s football team grabbed its fourth-straight victory on Oct. 29, taking down Grand Street Campus 22–20 on the road.

The Tigers (5–3) notched the game-winning touchdown in the waning minutes of the Public Schools Athletic League City Conference tilt, sparked by another dominant performance by the squad’s ground game. Seba Nekhet and Troy Booker combined for 291 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries — a two-pronged attack the Wolves’ defense simply couldn’t find an answer for. The pair averaged just under 14 yards per carry.
