Sectional Roundup


A pair of sectional football games, and two girls soccer matches highlighted a sectional Friday for Wasaren schools as Mechanicville and Greenwich posted gridiron wins, while Tamarac and Hoosick Falls got it done on the pitch.

Mechanicville 22  Stillwater 14:  It was a tale of two halves in Stillwater where the host Warriors led 14-0 at the break but a big second half from the Raiders including a pair of touchdowns in the final 4:54 secured the “W” for Mechanicville.

A Mason Seymour 9-yard touchdown run in the first period, and a Sean Kane 1-yard keeper for the score in the second gave Stillwater the advantage at the break.

Mechanicville got on the board in the third quarter on a Keegan McHale 1-yard run, and took the lead with 4:54 remaining when Dan Hayner took it in from nine yards out and McHale ran in for the two point conversion giving the lead to the Raiders at 15-14.

Two minutes later, after Stillwater’s second fumble of the period, Dan Motta scored on a 6-yard run and Mechanicville moved on in Class C sectional play where they’ll face the winner of today’s Voorheesville/Hoosick Falls game next weekend.


Greenwich 35  Watervliet 8:  Cole Burgess rushed for 226 yards and three touchdowns leading the Witches past the Cannoneers.

Greenwich held a 21-0 advantage midway through the third period behind Burgess’s trio of scores from 50, 9 and 78 yards out.

Reese Cristaldi added a pair of touchdown runs while gaining 159 yards on the night for the Witches.

Greenwich advances to the Class C semi’s where they’ll face the winner of today’s Hoosic Valley/Holy Trinity contest.


Hoosick Falls 2  Cobleskill 1 OT:  In a game that needed extra sessions to decide things, the Panthers Darian Morgan scored in the second overtime and Hoosick Falls moves on in the Class B girls soccer tournament.

In regulation the Panthers Ashley Foster and Cobleskill’s Emma Osterhoudt both tallied setting up Morgan’s overtime game winner.


Tamarac 8  Coxsackie 1:  The Bengals scored three first half goals, and five more after the break in cruising to the Class B quarterfinal win over Coxsackie.

Sydney Moss with four goals, and Isabell Bisciglia with a pair led the Tamarac assault.  Kate Huspath and Lauren Lockrow also added scoring strikes for Tamarac, and keeper Sarah Gibbs turned back seven shots between the posts for the Bengals.
