MAHOPAC, N.Y. -- White Plains High School won its first Section 1 Class AA football championship in 34 years on Saturday with a 20-11 victory over North Rockland High School at Mahopac High School.

The Tigers (8-1) last reached the Section 1 title game in 1993, but lost to a North Rockand team that went on to win the state title. This is also the Tigers' first sectional title since the state tournament began in 1993.

White Plains has a bye in next week's state regional playoff quarterfinals and will next play in the state semifinal on Saturday, Nov. 23 at Dietz Stadium in upstate Kingston at 8 p.m.

Quarterback Cameron Crabbe led the offense to two first-half touchdowns, but it was the Tigers defense that came up with a blocked field foal and recovered fumble to help forge a 14-3 halftime lead

Chris Jordan opened the scoring with a 4-yard scoring run and Crabbe ran in from the 1-yard line with just 16 seconds left in the first half to build the lead. Crabbe's 35-yard pass to tight end Lucas Repetti set up the 1-yard run.

Th Red Raiders closed the deficit to 14-11 with a touchdown and two-point conversion early in the fourth quarter and the defense stopped White Plains on the 1-yard line four times to keep the score.

Crabbe hit Eddie Rios with a 1-yard touchdown pass with a little more than one minute remaining in the game to seal the win.

Matthew Barrube recovered a blocked field goal attempt and had an interception in the second half for the victorious Tigers.

Brandon Curtis made a 27-yard field goal for the Red Raiders only score in the first half.
