Mighty Warriors earn home playoff game

Olszewski led all rushers with 88 yards on 24 carries for Mohonasen, which hosts defending state class A champion Amsterdam Friday.

"We have a new principal and a new athletic director, and they've done a great job of building up the sportsmanship and school spirit. This is going to be a great opportunity for the Mohonasen community to show their team spirit, and I think it's going to be fun," Sabourin said.

In other area football action, Niskayuna and Schalmont suffered home losses, while Scotia-Glenville fell to South Glens Falls by one point on the road.

Scotia-Glenville (1-6) had a nine-point lead heading into the fourth quarter of last Saturday's game, but a Matt Holcomb touchdown run and a Logan Carpenter field goal lifted South Glens Falls to a 17-16 victory.

Zach Coffinger scored on a 23-yard touchdown run in the first quarter to put the Bulldogs ahead 7-0, but Scotia-Glenville's Brett Evensen had scoring runs of 3 and 12 yards and a two-point con-version to help the Tartans build a 16-7 halftime lead.

Holcomb pulled South Glens Falls close with a 7-yard touchdown run, and Carpenter completed the comeback with a 27-yard field goal.

Last Friday in Niskayuna, the Silver Warriors built a 9-0 lead, but Saratoga charged back with four straight touchdowns on its way to a 34-15 win. Vonzel Legall led the Blue Streaks with three touchdown runs.

Schalmont fell to Hudson Falls 54-28 last Friday. Mike Saburro returned a kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown, and Ryan Donadio added a 75-yard punt return for the Sabres.""
