The Cambridge Indians wrapped up an undefeated run through the Section II regular and post seasons Saturday with yet another dominating performance, shutting out the Railroaders of Whitehall 48-0 to secure their third Class D sectional crown in the last four years.
Junior back Jonas Butz led the way for the Indians scoring on runs of 59, 15, and 79 yards, part of a 179 yard afternoon. Teammates Maurice Seymore, with 166 yards, Colton Dean 101 yards, and Ryan McLenithan with 89 yards all scored touchdowns in a contest where the Cambridge ground attack racked up 590 yards running through, over and past the Railroaders.
The Indians scored twice in the opening period, and three times more in the second taking a 35-0 lead to the break.
Defensively Cambridge limited Whitehall to less than 100 yards from scrimmage.
Just another day at the office for the Indians who improve to 10-0 completing a dominant run through Class D competition in Section II.
Cambridge has outscored opponents 546 -53 this season with their closest contest a 34-6 decision in week five over Canajoharie. The Indians have scored 60 or more five times while and defensively pitched four shutouts on the year. In their two playoff games facing the best of Section II Cambridge crushed Warrensburg 68-14 in the semis before their shutout win yesterday over Whitehall.
Next up for the Indians is a trip to the state quarterfinals where they’ll meet Section VII champion Ticonderoga Saturday at 1 p.m. at Schuylerville. Possibly the Sentinels will give Cambridge their first real test of the season and if it happens it comes in week 11, just another indication of how impressive the 2016 campaign has been for the Orange and Black.
