"It's a situation where we're going to try to put a positive ending on a disappointing season," said Sabourin.

Knights run over Scotia-Glenville

In other class A playoff action last weekend, the Scotia-Glenville Tartans lost to Division II champion Lansingburgh 52-0.

The Knights scored three times in each of the first two quarters to build a 45-0 halftime lead and cruised from there to improve their record to 8-0 and earn a semifinal meeting with Amsterdam.

Scotia-Glenville (2-6) closes its season Friday with a crossover game at Glens Falls.

Two other area football teams played crossover games after failing to make the playoffs. Niskayuna defeated Bethlehem 7-6 last Saturday in a class AA crossover, while Schalmont lost to James O'Neill from Section IX 19-6 last Friday in Kingston.

Stephen Lefebvre gave Niskayuna (2-6) a 7-0 lead with a second-quarter touchdown run. Bethlehem pulled within a point on Dan Unright's 17-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles missed the extra point.

The Silver Warriors end their season Friday by traveling to Albany.

Schalmont (2-6) couldn't contain James O'Neill's running game in its crossover game. Jared Sabel, Marshall Moten and Ben Johnson had touchdown runs, and Sabel rushed for more than 90 yards.

The Sabres wrap up their season Friday by hosting Watervliet in a class B-C crossover game.""
