Newburgh - First on our list of teams and individuals that reached stunning success this Fall is the NFA Goldbacks.
After capturing the Section IX Tital, they traveled to the Syracuse Dome on December 4 to tackle Section VI Buffalo Bennett High School. In a very physical game filled with pile-ons and tackles, as you can see in the photos below they fought really hard. Still Bennett kept a big lead throughout the game, winning with a final score of 42-8. These outstanding photos are but a few of the hundreds that Melissa Winfield-Corbett captured during the game.
The Goldbacks received lots of recognitions and awards upon coming home, including a Proclamation from the Town of Newburgh which declared December 12, 2022 as Goldbacks Day, and a lengthy list of
top awards from Section IX, including Coach of the Year for Bill Bianco, and Player of the Year Deondre Jackson.
