Football round-up: Roslyn beats Island Trees 24-8 for third win

Bill San Antonio

Heavy rains from Hurricane Joaquin may have washed out Roslyn High School’s annual homecoming parade Saturday, but that didn’t stop the Bulldogs from getting back into the win column, beating Island Trees (0-4) 24-8.

Roslyn (3-1) broke through with 24 points in the second quarter on three passing touchdowns by quarterback Adam Combs and conversions on three two-point conversion plays.

Combs finished 6-of-18 with 128 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, and also rushed for 131 yards on 18 carries and bruising a two-point conversion of his own.

He threw two touchdowns to Aaron Winston, who had 100 receiving yards on both grabs, and the third to Joe Cinque.

Marc Azouley also rushed six times for 55 yards.

The win moves Roslyn into a three-way tie with Friends Academy and Oyster Bay for second place in Nassau’s Conference IV.
