Are you ready for some Playoffs?

SARATOGA COUNTY – Three of the area’s High School Varsity football teams, by virtue of concluding their regular seasons undefeated, have garnered the Number 1 seed in their respective divisions and will host games as the playoffs begin this Friday, October 23 at 7 p.m.:


  • In Section II, Class AA Saratoga Springs (5-0 conference, 7-0 overall) sewed up the #1 seed in the Empire Division with a convincing 47-13 win over Ballston Spa last Friday, October 16. They will host the Liberty Division’s #4 seed Bethlehem (3-2, 4-3) – a rematch of a game on September 4, won in convincing fashion by the Blue Streaks, 42-0 to open their season. 


The Blue Streaks have averaged 43.7 points per game, and the offense has featured a balanced rush and passing attack. They have surrendered only 13.4 ppg. 


  • In Class A, Burnt Hills – Ballston Lake (5-0, 7-0) has the #1 seed in the North West Division, and will host Gloversville (1-4, 3-4), seeded #5. This is a rematch of a game held two weeks ago on October 10, where the Spartans won easily by a 50-14 score. 


BH-BL has averaged 39 points per game on offense, surrendering just 9.7 per contest.


  • In Class B, Schuylerville (5-0, 7-0) is seeded #1 in the West Division, and will host Hudson (3-3, 3-4), seeded #4 in the Reinfurt Division. This will be the first meeting this year between the two teams. The Black Horses have averaged 47.3 points per game, while surrendering just 8 ppg, with two shutouts and never more than 14 in any contest.

Also in Class AA, Ballston Spa (2-3, 3-4) is seeded #4 in the Empire Division. They face a strong test as they begin the playoffs at Shaker (5-0, 7-0), which is the #1 seed in the Liberty Division. The two teams have not met this season. The Scotties’ wins have come at home against Colonie and CBA, and on the road at Albany. None of these three teams are in the playoffs this year.
