NEW BERLIN – In the battle of the defeated's Bainbridge-Guilford traveled over the the hill to New Berlin to play Unadilla Valley, as they hung on late for a 24-22 victory.
Up 22-18 at the half, Unadilla Valley had their first win, on homecoming weekend nonetheless, in their sights as they went into the halftime break. However, a resilient young B-G had other plans, as B-G would notch the only score in the second half, earning just enough with a touchdown run from one yard out by quarterback Austin Carr, claiming the lead at 23-22 lead.
“We had a drive we were knocking on the door (second half following Carr's touchdown), we threw it and threw an interception. They returned it for a touchdown but there was a block in the back,” said Bainbridge-Guilford head coach Israel Lorimer. “We really concentrated on shutting Stirone down, because he is tough.”
The late drive interception from B-G nearly wiped away all their hard work, however, an untimely flag on Unadilla Valley allowed the Bobcats to sneak by for the win.
