The Hasbrouck Heights football team opened the 2012 season on a high note with a come-from behind 27-21 victory over Glen Rock on Friday night at Depken Field.
Aviators senior running back Anthony Seidel scored three touchdowns and collected three interceptions to lead the comeback over the Panthers.
Glen Rock had led 14-0 after the first quarter, but Heights (1-0) scored twice in the second quarter to tie the game at halftime at 14.
Hasbrouck Heights quarterback Darren Iurato hit wide receiver Franklin Garcia on a 65-yard touchdown pass and Pat Dowd kicked a point after to give the Aviators a 21-14 lead.
After Glen Rock came back to tie the game, Seidel scored his third touchdown of the game, a 12-yard run for the 27-21 lead with a little less than five minutes left in the game.
The Heights defense held on in the end in the North Jersey Interscholastic Conference crossover game.
