After a great week of practice and renewed focus, the Horsemen then delivered some hurt to Peekskill with a 45-20 win at home.

Dylan Nelson posted a pair of TD catches and put up 97 yards on five catches. Will Kelly put up 98 yards on four catches with a TD. Talon Carsto posted 87 yards with two TDs on the ground for the revitalized Horsemen.
