Ogdensburg Tops Cambridge-Salem


The Cambridge-Salem Indians traveled four hours north to Potsdam Friday night for their Class C state quarterfinal, and on a snowy night in the north country their football season came to an end.

The Blue Devils scored two first half touchdowns, and kept the Indians off the board until midway through the final period to post the 16-6 victory.

After forcing Cambridge-Salem to punt on their first possession Ogdensburg Free Academy drove 58 yards and Stephen Morley capped it with a 3-yard touchdown run and with the two-point conversion the Devils held the 8-0 lead.

The OFA defense held C-S at bay throughout, forcing two punts, a fumble and a missed field goal on the Indians first four possessions.

The Blue Devils scored their second TD right before the half when Jackson Troiano found MeSean Johnson on a 55-yard scoring strike and a 16-0 advantage at the half.

The Indians broke through with 5:49 remaining when Tommy English ran it in from 41 yards out, but the two point conversion failed and Ogdensburg closed things out for the “W”.

Cambridge-Salem completes another outstanding season finishing with a 10-1 mark and a Section II championship despite jumping up to the C classification this year after winning back to back state titles in Class D.
