Despite numerous terrific plays and a strong display of athleticism, East Islip’s varsity football team fell short to North Babylon in a Suffolk II semifinal playoff matchup on Nov. 17. The Redmen led 20-14 at halftime, but the visiting Bulldogs overcame this deficit to win 52-41.

While the team did not make it out of the second round of the playoffs, 2012-13 will still be remembered as a great season for the EI football program, one that exceeded expectations and provided memorable lessons and moments of teamwork and good sportsmanship.
