  • Photo by Al Konikowski As soon as Nick Garcia (10) got the ball down on the tee, Steven Mehling (6) kicked the game-winner against Minisink Valley as time expired.

— Steven Mehling came to Coach Gregory Sirico in March of last year and told him he thought he could help the football team.

Six month’s later, Mehling’s 33-yard field goal as time expired was the difference in the Wildcats' 17-14 win over Minisink Valley in front of a home crowd of more than 3,000 Friday night football fans.

Patrick Tully’s snap was on the money to Nick Garcia and the rest is another chapter in the history of Warwick football.

Warwick’s Harrison Parrelli rushed for 210 yards on 28 carries, scoring two touchdowns and the extra point for the Cats.

Warwick bounced back from a loss at Newburgh to improve their record to 5-1.

The defense played an outstanding game led by a strong performance by the defensive line and linebackers.

Jason Hranitz forced a key fumble in the third quarter recovered by Andrew Wiezbicki and Connor Perez intercepted a pass that led to a score.

Warwick will be at Valley Central this Friday night, Oct. 13, for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
