Fall sports preview: PMHS football returns with chance to three-peat Colonial Cup, build on last season’s 6-3 record

High school football season is upon us, and fans of the Pelicans can expect an exciting season. Last year, Pelham defeated longtime rivals Eastchester 27-21 in the Colonial Cup for the second year in a row. The Pelicans hope to continue their win streak over the Eagles, as well as capitalize on last year’s regular season success. Pelham finished with a record of 6-3, reaching the playoffs before ultimately being defeated by Somers, who would go on to win the state championship.

The Pelicans will face Eastchester in the first home game of the season on Sept. 14, with a chance to three-peat the Colonial Cup title.

Senior captain Nicholas Massaregli, who scored the game-winning touchdown at last year’s Colonial Cup, has high hopes for the upcoming season.

“There’s no doubt in the locker room that we can come back and win (the Colonial Cup) again,” said Massaregli. “We have the guys. We have the experience. It’s just a matter of executing and playing our best. We know last season didn’t end the way we wanted it to, but we know this season will be different, and we’re ready to bounce back and win.”

Homecoming will take place on Oct. 13 against Clarkstown South, a team the Pelicans have not defeated since the 2021-2022 season. Pelham will open their campaign away at Brewster on Sept. 6.
