Stillwater 45 Fonda 7: In a battle of unbeaten Class C Central squads it looked like anything but, as the Warriors jumped out to a 28-0 halftime advantage and coasted to the easy “W” over the Braves in Stillwater Friday night.
Warrior quarterback James Galarneau scored on runs of 78, 10, 45 and 21 yards all coming before the break, part of a 251 yard rushing effort by the Stillwater signal-caller.
Stillwater running back Mason Seymour added touchdowns runs of one and 49 yards, and Isaac Curtis wrapped up the scoring for the Warriors with a 32 yard field goal in the final period.
The Warriors defense allowed just one score on the night, that coming when Brave QB John Mancini found Giovanni DiCaprio for a 19-yard scoring strike in the third quarter.
With the win Stillwater clinches the C-Central and completes their regular season at 7-0 with their sights set on an extended post season run.
Greenwich 39 Lake George/Hadley Luzerne 0: The Witches put points on the board in every quarter while the Greenwich defense pitched a shutout, as the Witches posted the comfortable road win over the War Eagles Friday night.
Greenwich quarterback Jesse Kuzmich threw and ran for scores, and running back Chris Albrecht rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown to lead the way for the Witches.
Greenwich held a 7-0 lead at the quarter break on a 42 yard throw and catch from Kuzmich to Max Maguire and added 10 points in the final 40 seconds of the half on a 7-yard Kuzmich keeper for points, and a 42-yard field goal by Albrecht to give Greenwich control.
With the win the Witches move to 6-1 on the year and will prepare for the Section II tournament and await their seed, with the seeding committee meeting on Sunday.
Hoosick Falls 35 Hoosic Valley 18: The Panthers Max Kipp exploded for 254 rushing yards and five touchdowns as the Falls turned back the Valley for the Senior Night victory.
In the opening period Kipp’s first score came on a 1-yard tote giving the Falls a 7-0 lead, but the Valley quickly answered on a 10-yard touchdown run by quarterback Gavin Giordano.
In the second frame, Kipp tallied again on a 67-yard scoring jaunt giving the Falls a 14-6 advantage that they would ride into the fourth period.
In the fourth, the Valley struck for points when Giordano found Connor Wilson on a 27-yard scoring strike, pulling the Indians closer at 14-12.
But scoring runs of 3 and 47 yards by Kipp on the Falls next two possessions gave the home squad a three score cushion at 29-12, as the Panthers closed things out for the win, finishing the regular season with a 2-5 mark.
Hoosic Valley at 0-7 will hunt their first win of the year in a crossover game next weekend.
