MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - The Mount Vernon Knights football team, which began its season with two losses, can even its record Saturday when it hosts Rockland's Suffern High School in a 1:30 p.m. start at Mount Vernon high.
The Knights (1-2) opened the season with losses to Carmel and Mamaroneck before earning their first win in a 14-6 nail biter last week at Pelham. Suffern has lost its first three games of the season.
"We have talent here, but we will only win if we stay focused and build on things we work on in practices," Mount Vernon head coach Ric Wright said. "We have lost games when we didn't finish four quarters."
Suffern has scored just 13 points and allowed 68 in three games and has trouble scoring, so the Knights have a chance to puts some points on the board after scoring 28 in their three games.
Senior quarterback Anthony Green leads the Mount Vernon offense, which has the talent to score points if it can be consistent. The defense is keyed by seniors David Watkins, LaDre Milburn, Chris Anoff and Lamont Albert.
This match-up favors the Knights at home and a victory will help to motivate them for the rest of the season.
