BINGHAMTON – With 5:04 left in the first half, Sidney quarterback Darren Smith rushed 7 yards towards the end-zone but fumbled. His teammate Cameron Chabot landed on the bouncing football to make it 14-6, which was the final outcome of the Section IV Class D semifinal held at Binghamton Alumni Stadium Saturday.

Sidney’s first possession started at the Warriors 17-yard line. 15 plays later, it ended with with Smith connecting with Reggie Jimenez for seven yard passing touchdown on a fourth-and-5. The Warriors Brandon Evans received the pass from Smith for the two-point conversion, giving Sidney the 8-0 in the first quarter.

Greene’s answer attempt came in the opening plays of the second quarter when quarterback Coy Austin ran for enough yards to get a first down on fourth down but the play was called back due to a block in the back, bringing the line of scrimmage to the 19 yardline.

Austin’s pass attempt on the very next play fell incomplete, forcing the Trojans to a turnover on downs.

Greene scored before the half, closing the eight point difference to 6, when running back Justin Carman sprinted down the sideline for 34 yards and the score. Again the play came on a fourth down attempt, with the Trojans capitalizing on this try.

Nate Erickson’s rushing attempt on Greene’s two-point conversion was stopped short, keeping the score at 8-6 with 6:11 to go before the half ended.
