Malverne Falls to Mineola at Homecoming [Photos]

Victory continues to elude Malverne High School's varsity Mules.

Malverne High School's Varsity Football team was hoping to come away from Saturday's homecoming game with its first win of the season, but the Mules fell to Mineola, 28-6.

Following a festive parade down Ocean Avenue, Malverne students and fans packed the stands to cheer on the Mules on Oct. 13.

Mineola came out strong, taking a 15-0 lead early in the game, but Malverne's Jamal Aaron Hill put the Mules on the board late in the second quarter with a 21-yard touchdown. (Malverne's attempt at the extra two points failed.) 

After a riveting half-time show featuring the Pride of Malverne High School Marching Band, the current reigning New York State Champions, the Mules tried to coordinate a comeback but could not overcome Mineola. In the final 10 of the game, Mineola's Brian Gaffney scored two touchdowns, extending the team's lead to 28-6.

Malverne, who is now 0-6 in Nassau's IV Conference, will continue to work for its first victory when they take on Cold Spring Harbor at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 in an away game.
