BINGHAMTON – The Harpursville-Afton varsity football team is now an undefeated at 3-0, and now sits as the 8th ranked team in their class in New York State.
In a game that would see some one of the best rushing attacks (Harpursville-Afton) square off against one of Section IV's best quarterback to wide receiver combinations (Seton Catholic). It truly was a full offensive game.
The Hornets would travel to Binghamton to play Seton Catholic Central on Saturday, Sept. 17, where they would emerge victorious winning 73-32.
32 points of offense at the high school level would surely defeat many quality football programs, however, when Harpursville-Afton produces 634 total offensive yards – 462 of them rushing – the deadly Saint passing attack could not keep pace.
The Hornets would lead the Saints early in the first quarter of play at 22-0, seeing three rushing touchdowns from Tyler King in the first quarter (44 yards, 63 yards, and 14 yards).
Already up 22-0, the deadly passing attack of Seton's Dan Crowley to John Giangrieco for two consecutive receiving touchdowns would make for the looks of a classic showdown. Following the first quarter Harp-Afton would lead 22-12.
