— “They just want to get better every time they’re out there, and they do,” said Warren.

Meanwhile, Mohonasen can assure itself a Sectional berth by beating Bishop Maginn Friday. A win would give the Mighty Warriors the head-to-head tiebreaker over Bishop Maginn entering the final week of the regular season, when they face Southeast Division-leading Troy (2-0, 3-2).

In other football action, Niskayuna (1-2, 3-2) faces a potential must-win situation to make the Class AA playoffs when it travels to Liberty Division-leading Shaker (3-0, 5-0) Friday.

The Silver Warriors are in a three-way tie with LaSalle and Schenectady for third place in the Liberty Division. Colonie and Columbia are tied for second place with 2-2 divisional records, but Niskayuna lost to both teams this season.

Colonie (3-2 overall) defeated Niskayuna 19-16 last Friday. Quarterback Eugene Kupiec’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Devon Edwards in the fourth quarter proved to be the difference for the Garnet Raiders, as it gave them a 19-8 lead.

Chris Herman threw a 32-yard scoring strike to Anthony Massaroni for Niskayuna and Aidan O’Brien added a two-point conversion run to trim the deficit to three points.

, but that was as close as the Silver Warriors got.

While Niskayuna fights for a playoff berth Friday, Schalmont (4-0, 4-1) gets a night off from Class B competition. The Sabres were scheduled to play Johnstown, but Johnstown cancelled the remainder of its varsity season two weeks ago due to a lack of players.

Schalmont locked up the West Division title last Friday by beating Cobleskill-Richmondville 62-0 in Cobleskill. Tailback Devon Willis scorched the Bulldogs defense for 252 yards and five touchdowns, while quarterback Nick Gallo threw a touchdown pass and intercepted a Cobleskill pass for another score to lead the Sabres.

Schalmont concludes its regular season next Friday against Hudson Falls.
