Al Dockery scored a touchdown on a quarterback sneak with 5:04 remaining to seal the win as the Roy C. Ketcham High School football team beat White Plains, 13-6, at home on Saturday.
Jesse Pascale’s touchdown had given the Indians a 7-6 lead with 9:31 left in the third quarter. Pascale also stood out defensively, snagging “a key interception in the fourth quarter,” Ketcham coach Bryan Hogan said.
Tai-sean Dodd ran for 80 yards, “despite playing on a bum ankle,” Hogan said. C.J. Irizarry added 34 yards on the ground.
“We were a different team in the second half, particularly in the fourth quarter,” Hogan said. “A lot of that had to do with the guys up front.”
Ketcham (2-3) hosts Ramapo at 2 p.m. Saturday for its homecoming game.
Byram Hills 55, Beacon 43 — Cameron Shorey ran for 165 yards and three touchdowns and had two receptions for 42 yards and a score for Beacon (1-4).

“We had trouble containing (Byram Hills’) quarterback,” Beacon coach Brian Mahon said. “We also have some injuries we’re dealing with and depth is an issue. We have to lick our wounds and get ready for the next one.”

Woodlands 28, Haldane 0 — Haldane held visiting Woodlands scoreless in the first half, but the Blue Devils couldn’t sustain it, falling to 1-4 on Saturday.

Haldane has a bye next week.

“We’ve struggled collectively and haven’t been consistent,” Arlington coach Dominick DeMatteo said. “We had a team meeting (on Saturday) and we watched the entire game together. We addressed all the issues and talked about the direction we need to go in. We’re in a must-win mode now.”
