It’s been a long time since the John Glenn football team lost a game. Nearly two years in fact.

Already 4-0 this season with impressive wins over Babylon and Mount Sinai, the Knights have won 16 straight. They went 12-0 last year to win the Class IV Long Island Championship. Their last loss came in November of 2009.

That’s the challenge that awaits the Greenport/Southold/Mattituck/Shelter Island football team this afternoon at 4 p.m.

The Porters, 1-3 after last Saturday’s loss at home against Mount Sinai, will try their best to contend against the mighty Knights.

The schedule hasn’t been easy for the Porters, who were seeded sixth coming into the season in Division IV, forcing them to play the elite of the division.
