So far, the victims have not been able to identify their attackers, according to police.
Sleepy Hollow won 34-21.
The Journal News reports that the local rivalry will be a topic of discussion at an Ossining Village Trustees meeting on Tuesday.
But outside Sleepy Hollow High School on Monday, people weren’t very optimistic about anything coming of it.
“No one’s going to have peace with each other. They’re just going to keep fighting after every game. I hope something will be done but I doubt something will be done about the fighting,” one person told WCBS 880 reporter Paul Murnane.
A ruckus in Rye also followed Harrison’s victory and players leapt into the brook next to the field. There was one arrest after that game and it took police an hour, according to reports, to break up a crowd of 6,000.
