Newburgh-M-W rivalry among most intense

Perennial Class AA powers ready to battle on Saturday

Times Herald-Record/Varsity 845

Newburgh Free Academy running back Aaron Forbes is, of course, looking forward to Saturday's showdown with rival Monroe-Woodbury.

He isn't alone.

Fans and players on both sides are buzzing about the matchup, from downtown Newburgh to Highland Mills. Talk about the best football rivalries in Section 9 and you can very well start with Monroe-Woodbury vs. Newburgh.

There is always anticipation when the heavy hitters meet and, once again, there is hype surrounding the game. In part, because of the instant classic both sides provided the last time they played — last November in the Class AA championship.

Final score: Monroe-Woodbury 31, Newburgh 30.

It served as, perhaps, the best Class AA final in Section 9 history and the most exciting game in a rivalry that dates back almost two decades. For all of Monroe-Woodbury's success, it served as one of the Crusaders' most breathtaking wins. The Crusaders came back from a nine-point deficit late in the third quarter.

And for Newburgh?

"Honestly, I'm not over it," said Forbes, who has rushed for 448 yards and six touchdowns this season. "It was a tough loss and I probably think about it every day. I want to play the game. I don't want to sit out at all. I'm not big on emotion, but I'm going to play hard, and I can't wait for this game."

The storyline in Class AA this season is a familiar one: The road to the Section 9 title will likely go through Monroe-Woodbury and Newburgh. Since the classification began in 1996, the teams have combined to win 16 of the 18 Class AA titles, with Monroe-Woodbury winning 10 times.

Newburgh, quick and explosive, led Monroe-Woodbury 30-21 last November. It was an impressive turnaround, considering the Crusaders defeated Newburgh 35-14 during the regular season. Monroe-Woodbury pulled to within 30-28 on a 3-yard run by Cole Gennett with 6:39 remaining in the championship.

Then the Crusaders drove up the field, winning the riveting game at Middletown's Faller Field on a 26-yard field goal by Matt Paul with 1:22 remaining.

"I can't wait," Monroe-Woodbury free safety Brandon Lewis said. "I knew as soon as we beat them last year they would want to come back at us. We're excited to play. They are ready and we're ready. We will have a good game plan and just come out attacking."

Entering the latest edition of Monroe-Woodbury vs. Newburgh, both teams are starting to enter their usual form. The Crusaders defeated Minisink Valley 24-11 last week and Newburgh put away Washingtonville 41-21.

"The whole team is thinking about this game," said Gennett, a fullback/linebacker. "It's one of the biggest games of the year and the intensity is going to be high. I know it's going to be a great atmosphere. We will come out, play hard and see what happens."

After rare loss, M-W rebounds with win Defense stifles Minisink's running game

LATE HILL — Expect to win, not surprisingly, is Monroe-Woodbury's rallying call. You can find it written in the Crusaders' weight room and they end practices by saying it. Some Monroe-Woodbury players, including free safety Brandon Lewis, take the mantra pretty seriously. He was peeved when Monroe-Woodbury lost a non-league game to powerhouse Stepinac, which came equipped with a Division I quarterback, last week.

There should have been no shame in that loss, but ...

"That's just what we are born to do playing for Monroe-Woodbury," Lewis said. "We expect to win." That's exactly what Monroe-Woodbury did on Friday night, putting away Minisink Valley 24-11 in a non-league win with a lights-out defensive effort that shut down running backs Joe Sessa and Deonte Moore, who had lit it up in the first two weeks.

"It definitely annoyed us losing to Stepinac (28-10)," Lewis, a senior, said. "We just wanted to come out and show the rest of the section that we are good."

Up next for Monroe-Woodbury (2-1) is next Saturday's showdown at rival Newburgh in a must-see Section 9 Class AA Division I game. The Crusaders came back to defeat Newburgh 31-30 in last season's riveting Class AA championship. However, before Newburgh, Monroe-Woodbury had to get past Minisink Valley.

Moore put up 275 yards and three touchdowns and Sessa had 221 yards and five scores to open the season. For the most part, Monroe-Woodbury bottled up the pair, holding Moore to 80 yards — more than half came on two runs — and Sessa to 15. Sessa did score on a 5-yard run with 9:29 remaining and caught a two-point conversion from Matt Carosella to make the score 24-11.

"We knew Minisink Valley has size and they come to play," Monroe-Woodbury fullback/linebacker Cole Gennett said. "We definitely had a great game plan. They were a physical team, they fought hard. But we knew what we had to do. We needed to set the tone the whole game and that's what we did."

Monroe-Woodbury took a 14-3 lead on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Ryan O'Malley to senior Marc Meislahn with 7:02 remaining in the first half. It served as Meislahn's first career touchdown. The Crusaders took control when Gennett scored on a 37-yard screen pass with 1:07 remaining in the second quarter.

"We were motivated to get back this week," Lewis said, "and I was happy with our effort defensively. I can't wait for Newburgh. It's going to be a great game."

V845 football game of the week: Monroe-Woodbury at Minisink Valley

V845 football game of the week: Monroe-Woodbury at Minisink Valley

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Minisink Valley

Records: Minisink Valley 2-0; Monroe-Woodbury 1-1

Last week: Minisink Valley defeated Pine Bush 42-21; Monroe-Woodbury lost to Stepinac 28-10.

Why it matters: Monroe-Woodbury is the defending Section 9 Class AA champion and has a very good chance of repeating. Minisink Valley, which sputtered last season, is on its way to re-establishing itself as a Section 9 player. This serves as a good barometer for the Warriors.

Scouting Minisink Valley: Seems to be a turnaround team after starting last season 0-5, finishing 3-6. Minisink Valley has been led by running backs Joe Sessa (221 yards, five touchdowns) and Deonte Moore (275, three). Sessa and Moore have been led by a big-blocking offensive line, headlined by Nate Lake. Scouting Monroe-Woodbury: The Stepinac loss will likely just be a blip on the radar for Monroe-Woodbury. Stepinac, of White Plains, is loaded and Monroe-Woodbury coach Bernie Connolly would prefer to play a tough team rather than a patsie. The Crusaders, of course, remain as one of the favorites to win the Section 9 Class AA title. Monroe-Woodbury was the state Class AA runner-up last season.

What Minisink Valley is saying: "I think it's going to be a good game. It's a great way to see where we are. Monroe-Woodbury is one of the best teams in the state year in and year out. I think we are getting better and this is a good game to see where we are." — coach Kevin Gallagher

What Monroe-Woodbury is saying: "We have a pretty good game plan and I know our defense will be flying to the ball. I know Sessa is pretty good, but I think if we contain their run game, we will do pretty good." — free safety Brandon Lewis

Keys to victory: Minisink Valley must run the ball effectively and control the clock and line of scrimmage. The Warriors might not be able to compete if they are forced to pass often. Monroe-Woodbury must contain Sessa and Moore and be able to crack Minisink Valley's offensive line.

Quick slants: Monroe-Woodbury defeated Minisink Valley 48-7 last September. ... Quarterback Matt Carosella had one of his biggest games for Minisink Valley last week against Pine Bush, rushing for 126 yards and a touchdown. ... Even though Stepinac is loaded, Lewis said Monroe-Woodbury took the loss personally and has renewed motivation entering the Section 9 schedule. ... The Crusaders are 106-13 over the last 10 years and were ranked the second-most dominant team in the state during that span by MaxPreps before the season. ... Both teams look ahead to big-time divisional games next week. Monroe-Woodbury plays at Newburgh in a Class AA Division I game and Minisink Valley travels to Valley Central for a Division II showdown.

Prediction: Monroe-Woodbury 28, Minisink Valley 17
