Pryor, Patriots roll
Dominic Pryor had five catches for 57 yards and one touchdown along with a crucial pass breakup as Ward Melville (3-4) defeated Connetquot, 35-7, in Suffolk I football Friday night. The Ward Melville defense shut out Connetquot in the first three quarters, avenging a 41-40 playoff loss last season.
“Even before the season started,” said coach Chris Boltrek, “I think this game was circled on the calender for the kids that this was one they really wanted.”
Zach Hobbes had a 50-yard interception return and led the defense with six tackles and a sack. Eddie Munoz scored three TDs — two rushing, one receiving — and had nearly 100 total yards.
