DIVISION I: Bertone kicks game-winner for Connetquot

Justin Bertone nailed a 30-yard field goal as time expired to give Connetquot a thrilling 15-13 win over Sachem North Saturday in a Suffolk Division I football game on Homecoming Day in Bohemia.

Bertone's winning kick came after the Thunderbirds drove 47 yards in 11 plays to the Sachem North 13-yard line with three seconds remaining.

"It was the perfect snap and the perfect hold," Bertone said. "I was so fired up to get out there and kick it."
