Xaverian is hoping the third time is the charm.

The Clippers lost in the finals the last two seasons but earned a chance to make good after a 41–3 victory over Kennedy in the Catholic High School Football League Class A semifinals at Aviators Sports and Recreation Center on Nov. 14.

Brandon Peterson carried the ball eight times for 173 yards and a touchdown for Xaverian (8–3). Phil Depaulis ran for 151 yards and two scores. Angleo Spata found the end zone twice on the ground, and Pietro Riggio added a rushing score. Julius Arcaro tallied five tackles and an interception, and Mike Robertson picked off two passes. Top-seeded Xaverian faces No. 2 Cardinal Spellmam in the title game on Mitchel Field at 11 am on Nov. 21 — and The Clippers already beat the Bronx school both times they faced off this year.

Fort Hamilton 28, New Utrecht 6: Noah Solano carried the ball 11 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns for No. 5-seeded Fort Hamilton (9–2) in the opening round of the Public School Athletic League city conference playoffs. Connor Fitzsimons went 5 of 8, passing for 84 yards and running for a score. Seba Nekhet posted 85 yards of total offense, and Troy Booker added 72 yards. Jayson Magnani made a team-leading eight tackles. New Utrecht finished the season 4–7. The Tigers advance to face No. 4 and two-time defending champion Abraham Lincoln in Coney Island at noon on Saturday.

Eagle Academy II 36, KIPP NYC 0: Ramell Redd ran for 199 yards and three touchdowns on 10 carries for No. 2-seeded Eagle Academy (11–0) in the quarterfinals of the public school cup conference playoffs. Jamal Trotman added 36 rushing yards and a score on the ground. He also made 10 tackles, including a sack. Du Sean Barnett tossed a 35-yard touchdown pass to Tisshun Williams. Eagle Academy II moves on to face No. 5 East Harlem Pride in the semifinals at noon on Sunday.

Susan Wagner 24, Midwood 6: Mmidwood held the No. 9-seeded Hornets to just 53 yards of offense until Wagner’s final drive in the opening round of public school city conference playoffs. Midwood (6–5) eventually put together an 11-play scoring drive that Silas Burch capped with a 20-yard touchdown reception. Wagner takes on No. 2 Grand Street at Franklin K. Lane at noon on Saturday.
