Greene accomplished goal number four out of a preseason list of seven when it defeated Trumansburg last Saturday in the first round of the Section IV, Class C playoffs. Number five on that list is an easy one to surmise
Greene will meet Elmira Notre Dame Saturday at Ty Cobb Field in Endicott for its first Section IV championship. It is also the first sectional championship game for the Trojans gridders, and it comes after the program’s first playoff win.
“Yes, we’ve never been here before or played for a title, but we are treating it like we have,” said Greene sixth-year coach Tim Paske. Under Paske, Greene has four straight winning seasons and three consecutive postseason bids. “This is another opportunity for our team to play football. We need to enjoy the moment and go after it.”
Elmira Notre Dame is no stranger to postseason play, although it has been over a decade since it competed in Class C. The Crusaders were bumped to Class B for a decade, and made the playoffs several times, but were never able to capture an elusive B championship – as they did in the Class C ranks.
