Greene football stays perfect
Greene 40, Trumansburg 34
GREENE - Greene overcame Trumansburg’s big-play ability, and unforeseen absences, to keep its perfect record intact beating previously-unbeaten Trumansburg on Friday evening.
The Trojans (4-0) had perfect balance with their rushing and passing attack finishing with 225 yards rushing and 225 yards passing.
“I’d like to think we did that on purpose, but we did make an effort to really try to run the ball more,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton.
Greene had two straight 20-point spurts to reclaim the lead. After T’burg scored the first touchdown, the Trojans put together three straight touchdowns to take a 20-6 lead into halftime.
Hogan Ludolph pulled in touchdown receptions of 59 and 16 yards from quarterback Grayson Flanagan, and Hunter Page added a 13-yard touchdown.
Trumansburg tied the game up at 20-20 scoring on its first two offensive plays of the third quarter - a 54-yard run and a 76-yard run.
Greene’s reply was three touchdowns of its own to double the lead to 40-20.
Page scored the go-ahead touchdown pulling in a 60-yard TD pass from Flanagan., then Page made it the trifecta of scores hitting paydirt on a 34-yard dash.
Tyler Brown scored on the first play of the fourth quarter to put Greene in command.
The Blue Raiders made things interesting with two fourth-quarter touchdowns to pull within six points.
“We had a chance to close them out, but we let them off the hook for a little while,” Gorton said. “This is our best win of the season. (Trumansburg) is a playoff-type opponent, and we’re thrilled to have a good performance against a quality opponent.”
Ludolph had a fine all-around performance. In addition to his two TD catches, he led the Greene defense with 13 tackles, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.
Greene plays fellow unbeaten Unatego on Thursday at 6 p.m. The winner will claim the division title, Gorton said. .

Delhi 41, Bainbridge-Guilford 7
BAINBRIDGE - Bainbridge-Guilford was not able to sustain a promising start as visiting Delhi was able to pull away over the final three quarters on Friday.
The Bobcats (1-4) created an early turnover picking off a Delhi pass on the Bulldogs’ first possession of the game.
B-G was unable to cash in, and Delhi turned the tables picking off a pass and returning it 75 yards for the first score.
B-G tied the game on the next possession completing a 60-yard TD drive. Ethan Beames scored on a 14-yard TD run, and the extra point made it a 7-7 game.
Delhi would score the final 34 points of the game creating two more turnovers along the way.
“The game was way closer than the score shows,” said B-G coach Israel Lorimer. We had opportunities that we didn’t covert. Delhi is good up front, and that we’re struggling with. We couldn’t control the line of scrimmage.
Ethan Gregory had 78 combined rushing and receiving yards to lead the B-G attack. The Bobcats host Sidney on Friday.

Holland Patent 28, Sherburne-Earlville 13
SHERBURNE - Sherburne-Earlville put together its best offensive performance this season, but it was not enough to overcome a powerful and balanced Holland Patent offense on Friday.
Jordan Koenig rushed for 169 yards and one touchdown for Holland Patent, and quarterback Aiden Rubas threw for 107 yards and two touchdowns.
“The score doesn’t reflect the effort that was given,” said S-E coach Ed Holmquist. “We found ourselves on the other side of the scoreboard, and it’s fortunate, but the kids did fight to the end.”
Trailing 12-0 in the second quarter, S-E capped a long scoring drive on a Dereck Miller seven-yard TD run to make it a 12-7 game.
Hollland Patent’s quick-strike offense was able to respond with two TDs - and two two-point conversions - before halftime to take a three-score lead into halftime.
The Marauders’ defense held Holland Patent scoreless in the second half, and Ben Menard scored on a three-yard TD run drawing S-E within two touchdowns.
Menard rushed for a season-high 123 yards on 13 carries, and Miller had 62 yards rushing.
“Holland Patent is a very good, deep team, and people looking at it from the outside might’ve seen this as a rout,” Holmquist said. “The kids rallied, and played great defense in the second half.”
Sherburne-Earlville hosts Lowville on Friday. Holmquist said first responders and military will be recognized before the game.
