Middle linebacker Raheem Brown had eight tackles, and Jaron Greenridge, a free safety, had seven tackles.

Whitman 34, Copiague 8: Jaron Batts caught two TD passes, returned a punt for another and passed for a score to lead Whitman (1-3). His 66-yard punt return with three minutes left in the third gave the Wildcats a 34-0 lead. Parrish Respass threw for two touchdowns, both to Batts.

Newfield 53, Centereach 0: Josh Hanna had 161 yards and three rushing TDs on 12 carries to lead Newfield (2-2).
