Highlights: Connetquot 15, Sachem North 13: Justin Bertone nailed a 30-yard field goal as time expired to give Connetquot a thrilling 15-13 win over Sachem North yesterday 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 yardline with three seconds remaining. "It was the perfect snap and the perfect hold," Bertone said. "And I was fired up to get out there and kick it." Sachem North called consecutive timeouts to freeze the senior kicker, who also plays for the school soccer team. The delays had no effect on Bertone. "Come on, we \[kickers\] live for this," he laughed. "It was great." Two plays keyed the drive that set up the kick. Senior halfback Joe Pellegrino went off right tackle for a six-yard run on a fourth down and five play to the Sachem 35. And junior quarterback Ryan Anderson hit junior wide out Matt Nason for 24 yards to the 13 with three seconds left.
