Blazers Lead From Start To Finish And Hold Off Ellenville










MILLBROOK – One thing Sean Keenan never lost faith in was his players.

“Listen,” the Millbrook High School football coach said, “it catches up to you when you have a roster where half the players never played varsity before. It takes time for them to adjust, but they never stopped working. Their hard work paid off tonight.”

Millbrook won its first game of the season after starting 0-4, leading from start to finish and holding off Ellenville on Saturday night, 36-34, in a non-league game.

The Blazers scored the first 20 points of the game but the pesky Blue Devils stayed in it, pulling within 30-20 at the half and 30-28 in the fourth quarter.

Millbrook rushed for 351 yards in controlling the ball, including 196 yards and two touchdowns from Michael Tipping. Mike Triglia ran the ball five times for 69 yards and a score, Tyler Madison had 64 yards and a TD, and James Moore threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Steve Szalewicz.

Defensively, Ollie Storey had nine tackles, Moore had seven tackles and Sean Kirkland had six tackles.

“Getting Mike Triglia back (from injury) was a big help, and Ollie played an unbelievable game,” Keenan said. “I’m just so happy for these kids for all the work they put in.”
