Looking at: Key football quarterfinal contests

Massapequa at East Meadow, Saturday, 1 p.m.: Massapequa quarterback Paul Bentz will play without playmaker Jack Korber, who suffered a broken wrist in last week’s loss to Farmingdale. The Chiefs will need to find a way to stop East Meadow halfback Billy Andrle.
Sachem East at Northport, Saturday, 1 p.m.: The return of super halfback Steve Casali makes this one very interesting. He ran all over Northport in the first meeting won by Sachem East, 41-26. Northport is not the best kept secret on Long Island anymore – not after convincing wins over Sachem North and Floyd. The Tigers are definitely in the mix behind quarterback Sean Gilroy for the Suffolk I title.
North Babylon at Smithtown East, Saturday, 1 p.m.: North Babylon quarterback Jack Conner threw for two scores and ran for two in a resounding win over Newfield last week knocking the Wolverines from the post-season. Bulls sophomore quarterback John Daniggelis will mix the run and pass to keep pace with the Bulldogs. This game will be won up front on the lines.
John Glenn at Mount Sinai, Saturday, 1 p.m.: Seventh-seeded Glenn, the two-time defending LI Class IV champions, were in a rebuilding mode all season and could be dangerous in the post-season. No. 2 Mount Sinai survived last week against Hampton Bays, 13-7, and will be tested in this one.
Hewlett at Glen Cove, Saturday, 1 p.m.: No. 2 Glen Cove was a ninth seed coming into the season and a 20-19 win over Hewlett made believers out of many. Hewlett quarterback Zach Richman ran for three scores and passed for two last week. He’ll need to be on his game if the seventh-seeded Bulldogs are to upset Glen Cove.
