Cortland High’s Dylan Brown, 21, breaks free from Westhill defenders for a 98-yard touchdown run in the second quarter Thursday at Moiseichik Field. CHS was a 26-0 winner.
Roaring start for Purple Tigers
Cortland High football coach Pete Reif sat in his office after Thursday night’s season-opening game with Westhill on Moiseichik Field, drenched.
It wasn’t because of the hot, muggy conditions under which the contest was played, though.
His Purple Tiger squad had joyously doused him with a water bucket after blanking their Section 3 Class B West visitors from Syracuse, 26-0, to give Reif a victory on his first-ever game as CHS’s head varsity coach ... on Time Warner’s first televised Thursday night high school game, no less.
