The Panthers varsity football team (11-0) extended their historic undefeated season on Nov. 25, edging the Mt. Sinai Mustangs, 21-7, in the Suffolk Division IV championship game at Stony Brook University.
    
Standout quarterback Nick Santorelli opened the Panthers’ scoring with a nine-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, adding 128 passing yards to lead Babylon to its first Suffolk County title since 2008. Babylon, which stormed into the Suffolk IV playoff bracket as the No. 1 seed, also saw key contributions from Jake Carlock and Eric Schweitzer, among others. Carlock caught a 53-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter to give Babylon a 14-7 advantage, and Schweitzer scored on a 10-yard run in the fourth to seal the victory.
    
Babylon advances to face the Nassau champion Roosevelt Rough Riders on Dec. 1 at Stony Brook University for a chance to hoist the Long Island Class IV championship trophy.
