Empire Challenge final

The connection was slow and I couldn't get on. JeVahn Cruz had an interception for LI with 3:38 left. Then a snap went over John Kinder's head and into the end zone. Kinder got the ball and tried to throw it out of the end zone and was intercepted by Devante Wheeler and he took it to the 1. After being stopped on first down, Rodriguez scored on a 1-yard run with 1:41 left to give NYC a 15-10 lead.

LI had the ball at its own 34 and got down to the NYC 34 before turning it over on downs.

NYC wins, 15-10.
