Four league teams played football Friday night and all four earned “W’s as week three of the high school football season got underway.
Mechanicville 21 Holy Trinity 10: After a scoreless first half Holy Trinity used a 36 yard field goal from Luke Clement, and a 41 yard scoring strike from Joe Tortello to Nacier Hundley to build a 10-0 advantage heading into the final period.
But after a night in which they were plagued by turnovers, the fourth quarter belonged to the visitors from Mechanicville.
Evan Chapman got things started with a 2-yard touchdown run, Spencer Morgan followed with a 27 yard score, and the Raiders put it away when Dan Motta found Keegan McHale on a 35 yard throw and catch giving Mechanicville their third win in as many weeks.
Greenwich 46 Fonda 13: The Witches used a 28 point third period to win going away despite trailing at the half.
A pair of touchdown throws from Fonda quarterback Mike Parslow staked the Braves to a 13-12 lead at the break.
After intermission it was all Greenwich scoring four times in the third, on a pair of Cole Burgess touchdown runs, as well as scoring runs from Reese Cristaldi and Jack Pemrick and the Witches were in control and on their way to win number three in as many outings.
Hoosic Valley 49 Corinth 24: The Valley running game was on full display as Isaac Sanchez, Tom Madigan, and Ryan Rifenburg combined for 342 yards and four touchdowns fueling the Indians “W” over a pesky Corinth squad.
Valley quarterback Mike Schoonmaker threw twice in the game, both going for touchdowns as the Indians out scored the Tomahawks 36-6 over the middle two periods on their way to a 3-0 season start.
Hoosick Falls 28 Granville 13: Panther quarterback Aaron Tomczak ran for three touchdowns, and added 100 yards passing to lead the Falls to their first win of the season over the Golden Horde of Granville.
A pair of third quarter scoring runs by Tomczak gave the Panthers a 28-7 cushion, and while Granville scored late in the period on a 9-yard touchdown run by quarterback Trace Bourn, both defenses pitched shutouts in the final quarter and the Falls secured the win.
