Dylan Laube rushed for 307 yards on 16 carries, breaking Matt McAllister’s Westhampton school rushing record of 303 yards in 2004, according to coach Bill Parry, as Westhampton (2-0) defeated Comsewogue, 42-27, in Suffolk III. Laube also scored five touchdowns — including runs of 75, 56 and 57 yards.

“Comsewogue had a really good defensive scheme to be honest with you and we weren’t getting much at all. He (Laube) was making something out of nothing,” Parry said. “It was definitely special to be able to see him do that.“

Parry added that most of Laube’s runs came up the middle rather than on the outside.

“He’s very elusive,” Parry said. “He’s obviously very fast, also. All he needs is a little bit of room to move around and it’s very tough to tackle him.”

Liam McIntyre added 102 yards on nine carries and Ross Cange and Tom Blake each recovered a fumble.

East Islip 28, Eastport-South Manor 14: Justin Tavares had 216 yards on 20 carries — averaging more than 10 yards a rush — and scored four touchdowns to lead East Islip (2-0). He also had a 33-yard reception from Kyle Fleitman. Fleitman added 174 rushing yards on 27 carries. East Islip’s Kyle Nunez had seven tackles, including two for losses, and Dylan Rigo added eight tackles.

Harborfields 27, Amityville 14: Gavin Buda had a 25-yard touchdown run and five receptions for 85 yards and a score to lead Harborfields (2-0). PJ Clementi was 13 of 15 passing with 135 yards and one touchdown. Joe Kelly and James Baskin had six tackles and Andrew Loiacono had two interceptions.

West Babylon 20, Rocky Point 7: Marc Fabien had a touchdown on the first drive, and Marc Esposito followed with a 70-yard touchdown reception from Chris Repman to give West Babylon (1-1) a 13-0 lead in the first quarter. Esposito and Repman connected again later for a 52-yard score. Repman threw for 255 yards and three touchdowns and Esposito had 150 receiving yards.

Hauppauge 14, Islip 0: Nick Paresi passed for 80 yards and ran for 130 yards, finding the end zone on a first-quarter carry to lead Hauppauge (2-0). Steven Holber helped put the game away with a 4-yard score in the fourth quarter and John Munro had six tackles.
