EASTCHESTER, N.Y. The Eastchester High School football team will travel to Pelham High School on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in a battle of 0-5 teams.
Both teams have struggled throughout the season, but one is guaranteed to earn its first victory of the year.
Eastchester has fared slightly better than Pelham this year, as the Eagles stayed competitive with Byram Hills High School in a 20-12 loss in week one and might have beaten Brewster High School last week were it not for a botched snap on a potentially game-winning field goal attempt.
The Eagles allowed Brewsters Fernando Solis to rush for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the 21-20 loss.
Pelham started out the season with 33-0 and 40-0 losses before losing a close game to Mount Vernon High School in week three. Ossining and Byram Hills high schools then beat Pelham soundly in back-to-back weeks.
Byram Hills dominated the Pelicans with big plays, including junior Ian Rauns 87-yard touchdown run and 86-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Pelham has allowed 31.8 points per game this season and scored just 7.6 points per game. Eastchester, on the other hand, has given up 32.8 points per game and scored 15.6 points per game.
Neither team has a chance at this point in the season to make the playoffs in Class A, but one of them will remove the zero from the front of its record.
