This Week in Sachem Football: Week 2

A historical look at the Flaming Arrows on the gridiron.

Every week I'll breakdown each game and what it means from a historical perspective in the football programs at Sachem North and East. As the season progresses, the numbers and statistics become more and more interesting, but here's the information from Week 2:

Sachem North 34, Lindenhurst 15

  • Sachem is 25-10 all-time against Lindenhurst. Its first game dates back to 1972. Sachem won 11 straight contests from 1976-1987. The Flaming Arrows have also won seven of the last 11 games dating back to 1999.
  • Sachem has outscored Lindenhurst 697-459, all-time.
  • Their last meeting before Friday's game was a 44-7 Sachem loss in 2008.
