Sabers Stay Victorious In Playoffs
The playoffs were underway from Susquehanna Valley High School on November 2 as the Sabers hosted the Indians of Watkins Glen Odessa Montour. SV finished the regular season undefeated with an 8-0 record. Watkins Glen ended with a three-game winning streak, finishing with a 4-4 regular-season record.
The name you needed to know for the first half of the game was Logan Haskell. First play from scrimmage, he throws a deep ball downfield on a 63-yard pass to Mason McCormack. The two-point conversion was no good giving the Sabers a 6-0 lead. Haskell would run from 48-yards out to score his first rushing touchdown of the game. Haskell would also run it into the endzone on the two-point conversion to make it 14-0.
In the second quarter, Haskell ran for 88-yards to tally another six points for Susquehanna Valley. An unconverted two-point conversion left the score at 20-0. Haskell's final play of the first half was an 11-yard run with 24 seconds remaining. Another two-point conversion didn't go their way leaving the lead at 26-0 at the half for the Sabers.
Watkins Glen was able to get on the board in the second half, ending the SV streak of holding their opponent scoreless at home since the opening of their new field last season. Travon Jones was able to find the endzone and put up six for the Indians. The extra point was no good, so it remained 26-6. Soon after, it was back to business as usual for the Sabers, as Haskell tacked on six more with a 51-yard run. The two-point attempt was no good, making it 32-6. McCormack was able to get another touchdown for himself and after a missed extra point attempt, it was 39-6.
In the fourth quarter, neither team managed to score on offense, but the defense did. Anthony Dominguez with the pick-six returned it to the house for the Sabers. The extra point was good, which made the final score 46-6 in favor of Susquehanna Valley. SV will play next weekend in Johnson City against Windsor for the Section IV title.
