Roslyn High School’s high-powered offense was on full display again last Friday night as the Bulldogs secured a big, 36-20 lead, before holding off Carle Place/Wheatley, 36-33, in the team’s final road game of the season.
The game was also Roslyn’s first night game of the season, as the regular season finale this Friday will be a home night game.
But day or night, the aerial show by Adam Combs and his select group of receivers is always on display. Roslyn fell behind 7-0 early in the first quarter, before scoring two touchdowns, one on a 49-yard pass from Combs to Jackson Krush and the other on a 45-yard pass from Combs to Krush. After Carle Place rallied to tie the score, Roslyn grabbed the lead for good on a 4-yard pass from Combs to Prince Butler. The Bulldogs rounded out their 16-point second quarter with a one-yard touchdown run by Combs. In the third quarter, a 17-yard pass from Combs to Joe Cinque gave Roslyn a two-touchdown lead. Playing at home, Carle Place battled back, scoring touchdowns in both the third and fourth quarters. However, Roslyn’s offense was able to run out the clock, giving them the win and improving their record to 5-2.
“We were down a few players, but Combs had a monster game,” head coach Mike Cocoran told The Roslyn News. In the win over Cold Spring Harbor, senior Aaron Winston suffered a ligament injury that ended his season, but the Bulldog offense had little trouble improvising.
Combs had his usual fine passing game, connecting on 10 of 22 attempts for 210 yards and four touchdowns. Winston was sidelined, but the Bulldogs star quarterback had plenty of targets to choose from. Krush had three catches and two touchdowns, while Joe Cinque, Marc Azouley, Nat Epprecht and Prince Butler also hauled down receptions. Butler ran for 70 yards on nine carries, while Combs continued his own running game, carrying the ball 21 times for 48 yards. On defense, Combs recovered a fumble that lead to Roslyn’s second score.
This Friday, the regular season, as noted, comes to an end with a 6 p.m. home game against Clarke High School. This year’s graduating seniors are: Aaron Winston, Jackson Krush, Brandon Abizadeh, Lucas Broncato, Andreii Castelblanco, Brian Pierce, Justin Wilkins, Damon Schneider, Kyle Lin and Navid Shamsdiba.
The game is a perfect occasion to thank these fine athletes for their winning performances and all-around sportsmanship. It is also ab opportunity to cheer on another great Roslyn squad as they hope to complete a winning season with a big win for the home crowd fans.

For at least one Roslyn High School team, the fall sports season is over—and for the Roslyn boys’ varsity golf team, it is time to celebrate and savor a championship year. Indeed, a dynasty is coming into its own on the links. The Bulldogs have completed the 2015 season with a 10-0 record, winning the Conference VI title outright for the second year in a row. In 2013, Roslyn was co-champions of Conference VI, so this year’s perfect season makes its three consecutive years when the Bulldogs had at least a share of the crown. [Read more…]

Roslyn Rules Homecoming 2015
BY JOE SCOTCHIE
In the past few years, Roslyn sports fans have been treated to performances by many top-notch athletes: George Beamon and Mark Gjonlekaj in boys’ basketball; Allison Schneider and Paula Spatz in girls’ basketball, Thomas Davis in football and basketball and the All-American track star, Emily Lipari. Another big star is well on his way to memorable senior year. Last Saturday, the Roslyn Bulldogs celebrated Homecoming 2015 with a convincing 24-8 win over Island Trees. And senior quarterback, Adrian Combs put on another brilliant performance, running for 131 yards on 18 carries, passing for 128 more yards, including three touchdowns, while also keying the Bulldog defense. Combs is the most exciting football player Roslyn has produced in years. If Combs isn’t the top quarterback in Conference IV ball, then he’s certainly a contender. [Read more…]
