HS Football: Finals – Times Two!

Saratoga, Schuylerville Reach Title Games

SARATOGA SPRINGS – It’s what everyone plays for. 


It’s that big game with the trademarked name we can’t print, but you know what it’s called… and fans of our area teams are about to get a double dose of championship fever. And, more good news – the schedule-makers have been kind enough to put the finals’ games on different days:

  • -Saratoga Springs (9-0):  By virtue of a second, convincing 35-7 victory on Friday, October 30, over Shenendehowa this season, the Blue Streaks will face unbeaten Shaker (also 9-0) in the Class AA final in a game Friday, November 6, at 7 p.m. on Shenendehowa’s home field. It will be Saratoga’s first final game since 2009, and the Blue Streaks reached it in typical fashion, with a balanced attack led by Dakota Harvey, who rushed for 3 TD’s and 176 yards. QB Brian Williams had over 100 yards rushing and passing. Williams ran for one TD and threw for another to Brandon Hipsley as the Blue Streaks answered Shenendehowa’s initial score with 35 straight points to put the game away. 
  • -Schuylerville (9-0): The Black Horses avenged their loss to Schalmont in last year’s Class B Semifinal with a 42-0 thrashing of the Sabres on Friday, October 30. The win ended Schalmont’s streak of six straight championship games in the process. Schuylerville racked up an impressive 441 yards on the ground, led by Skyler Bateman with 125. Will Griffen and Zach Pierce each had 116 yards and two touchdowns, and Joe Vanderhoof contributed 66 yards with two TD’s. It was Schuylerville’s third shutout of the season, and they draw a rematch in the Class B final against Glens Falls (8-1), whose only blemish was one of those shutouts - a 33-0 loss to the Black Horses on October 9. The Class B final will be played at Burnt Hills- Ballston Lake High School on Saturday, November 7 at 3 p.m.


Enjoy the moment – it’s what everyone plays (and fans root) for.
