KETCHAM FOOTBALL DOMINATES OSSINING

Indians Make It Two Straight With Home Win

WAPPINGERS FALLS – Despite an ungodly long bus trip down to Clarkstown South High School last week, Roy C. Ketcham football coach Bryan Hogan saw something in his team.

“We just showed up last week at Clarkstown South ready to ply, and played terrific,” he said of the Indians’ 32-29 win. “The kids’ whole mentality was that we were going to control this game.”
They controlled it again this week.

Ketcham dominated the ground game and came up with a big defensive play to start the game en route to a 35-6 victory over Ossining on Saturday.

The Indians are now 2-2 overall after starting 0-2.

Avant Owens ran for more than 100 yards and had another three-touchdown week for RCK, scoring on runs of 32, five and 12 yards.

Sean Camacho had a 50-yard TD run in the third quarter.

But the tone was set in the first quarter by his younger brother Kevin Camacho. With Ossining driving down the field and reaching the Ketcham red zone, Camacho opened the scoring in the first quarter with a spectacular play, intercepting an Ossining pass and taking it back 90 yards the other way for a Pick Six and a 7-0 lead.

“I was aware that this could start slowly for us a variety of reasons and I was not surprised by 0-2,” Hogan said. “We knew the problems were of our own doing and we could fix them and be better. Ossining was bending our defense, bending our defense, but we didn’t break. We’re starting to show our talent. The belief is setting in. I like where we are at mentally now.”
