Greene 28, Newfield 26

NEWFIELD - Down 12 points in the third quarter, the Trojans’ offense scored on a back-to-back drives, and a made two-conversion proved the difference in a win over Newfield on Saturday.

“We gave up two long drives on (Newfield’s) first two drives in the second half,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “We missed several tackles, which is unusual for us. The kids did come back, and played great.

With Newfield leading 26-14 in the third on the strength of the two aforementioned TD runs, Greene (2-0) pared the deficit on Grayson Flanagan’s three-yard TD toss to Bill Dunlap. It was Dunlap’s third TD catch of the game, and also Flanagan’s third TD toss.

Before the close of the third stanza, Flanagan hooked up with Damien Hitt on a 22-yard TD pass. With the game tied, Greene converted the two-point try on a Flanagan hookup with Hitt.

Flanagan finished 13-for-22 for 240 yards and four scores. Dunlap had 113 yards receiving, and Hitt caught eight balls for 90 yards.

Greene’s defense was led by Hogan Ludolph’s 16 tackles.

“After we managed to score and take the lead, we played really solid defense,” Gorton said. “We tackled at the line of scrimmage, and gang-tackled well.”

Greene hosts Oxford Thursday at 7 p.m.

Newark Valley 62,

Bainbridge-Guilford 3

BAINBRIDGE - Newark Valley had three players rush for two touchdowns, and the Cardinals racked up over 450 rushing yards in a blowout victory over Bainbridge-Guilford Friday night.

Joe Sherwood scored on three TD runs, while Max Flesher and Luke Rinkavage had two TD runs apiece. Rinkavage led the Newark Valley rushing attack with 115 yards on five carries.

“We have an inexperienced team, and they have an experienced team,” said B-G head coach Israel Lorimer. “And it showed. The guys did play hard all night. We didn’t always play super smart and we made mistakes where we were out of position at times. We got a little confused.”

The Cardinals scored all their touchdowns over the first three quarters. The Bobcats (1-1) avoided the shutout when Nolan Hawkins converted a 23-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

B-G plays Harpursville-Afton next weekend.
