The Sentinels (1-1) answered on the ensuing drive with a Garrison Hughes-to-Ryan Trudeau 51-yard bomb to tie the game at 6-6. Ticonderoga scored the only touchdown of the second quarter when Hughes plunged in from the one-yard line. After a scoreless third quarter, the door was left open for the Indians (2-0) to come back, with Altizer’s one-yard keepers at 1:18 and 8:32 of the fourth quarter for the win.

The Moriah Vikings racked up 20 points in the first 12:03, built a 33-0 halftime lead, then coasted to a 40-22 victory over the Saranac Central Chiefs.

After struggling to a 7-2 lead through the first quarter after a five-yard TD strike to Alex Donaldson, the Storm racked up 20 unanswered points in the second quarter to put the game away. Fitzgerald pumped a 12-yard touchdown pass to Ty Marmion, then dashed 10 yards to score just 4:35 later to give Saranac Lake breathing room on the scoreboard. Donaldson hauled in another 21-yard pass with 31 seconds left in the half. Killian Ryan and Hunter Moon added TD runs in the second half.

Peru’s Brandon Sawyer and Beekmantown’s Justin Stevens provided plenty of rushing and scoring power, especially early in each half. But it was the defenses who needed to answer in the second half to determine who would prevails in the Indians-Eagles season opener. Sawyer scored on a 12-yard run just 4:36 into the game. On the ensuing drive, Stevens answered with a 55-yard ramble just 1:22 later for tie knot the game at 8-8. Beekmantown gained the upper hand with just 29 seconds left in the half to post a 14-8 lead at intermission. Peru opened the second half as it did in the first, with Sawyer taking the handoff from the four-yard line and barreling into the end zone. However, the two-point attempt failed, leaving the Indians down 15-14 with 9:37 still remaining in the third quarter. Indians quarterback Blake Altizer would toss the game-winning TD bomb from 38 yards out, finding Troy Lawyer for the final score of the game with 7:34 left in the third.


Moriah's Jordan Cheney snared a tipped pass and ran home a few yards for a "pick six" in capping Moriah's 28-6 win over Plattsburgh.  The Hornets kept the game close, trailing just 14-6 at the end of the third quarter.  Adam Jaquiish scored two first-half touchdowns -- one rushing and the other passing.  McKenzie McKathan scored from four yards out after Riley Monahan intercepted for Plattsburgh with 5:26 left in the third.  Jaquish's 64-yard TD pass to Cody Stockwell less than a minute into the third quarter was the key blow for the Vikings.

All of the scoring came before halftime, as Ticonderoga cruised to a 33-0 win.  Konnor Bruce scored on a four-yard run, then Ryan Trudeau plunged in from the two-yard line just four minutes later to open a 14-0 lead.  Garrison Hughes caped the explosive first half with rushing scores of 23 and 21 yards.  Dom Banish nailed a 38-yard field goal.  The Sentinels also scored on a safety in the second quarter.

 Saranac Lake Red Storm defensive back Torin Smith secures an errant pass from Patriot quarterback William Coats before returning the interception for a touchdown. Smith's pick-six would stake the Storm to a insurmountable 35-0 lead midway through the second quarter at Ken Wilson Field.

Saranac Lake drove, passed and recovered two fumbles in the end zone to put up touchdowns in their season-opening 48-0 blitz of AuSable Valley. Ty Marmion’s 15-yard run at 2:47 of the first quarter launched the offense. On the next drive, quarterback Tristan Fitzgerald hooked up with Alex Donaldson who broke tackles and jetted to the end zone. Following Drew Sturgeon’s extra-point kick, the Storm had opened a 14-0 lead with just 5:16 played in the first frame. The Storm added 28 unanswered points in the second quarter, starting with Dylan Kilner’s three-yard TD plunge. A minute later, Marmion took a punt return 54 yards to score. Torin Smith snared an interception for a 65-yard “pick six.” Hunter Moon and Jesse Lahart both pounced on end-zone fumbles to account for the other scores.
