Blue Devils sneak by Warriors

LATE PENALTIES ALLOW FOR CF TOUCHDOWN IN BEST CV VS. CF GAME TO DATE – FORKS WINS 14-9

Chenango Valley High School – 9/30/06
The CV student section at the Chenango Valley High School football field could not have been louder. The stadium could not have been more packed, the concession lines could not have been any longer, and the rivalry could not have been any more brutal. When the ‘Warrior Clap’ started as the Chenango Valley varsity football team took the field, everyone knew CV was going to win. They ran out onto the field in front of cheering and supportive fans, and also bitter rivals. This feeling would last until the last two minutes of the game, when CF got extremely lucky and turned the game around. In the final minutes of the game, CV was called for pass interference on a long, incomplete pass from CF quarterback Bryan Lance. After the play, an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was called against Warrior head coach Jay Hope who protested the previous call. This critical penalty then moved the ball ahead to the 10-yard line. From that point the CV cheering section went silent, not knowing what would happen next in a game that looked like it was going CV’s way. Chenango Fork’s Joe Aston ran the ball in for a touchdown on the third down of the next drive. It was 14-9 with less than a minute to go. CV got to their own 45-yard line five plays after the kickoff. Matt Mullins then made a pass down the middle which ricocheted off the hands of the intended receiver to fall into the grasp of Tim Zdimal- a CF
sophomore. CF had barely won the best Warriors vs. Blue Devils football game in the history of the rivalry, and certainly one of the best high school football games so far in the season for the Southern Tier. However, just because CV lost, they put on a spectacular show of strength on both offense and defense. On offense, Matt Mullins led the team with 196 passing yards, along with Trevor Cola who rushed and received for a total of 118 yards, and Nick Dadamio who kicked an early field goal and ran in added 69 receiving yards. The defense held the state champions Chenango Forks to only two touchdowns and 199 yards throughout the game. Both schools had great football teams that have proven that they can be competitive on the football field. Chenango Forks may have won this battle, but another Warriors-Blue Devils game is possible before the end of the football season. They could end up playing each other again in the playoffs when the stakes will be higher, the competition fiercer, and the prize bigger.

Warriors 4-0

CV flawless in 28-0 win against Oneonta.                                                                                            Chenango Valley High School – 9/23/06                                                                                                                                                    Chenango Valley High School has proved that football can be exciting in the valley. The Warriors shutout the Oneonta Yellowjackets 28-0 Saturday, just in time for CV Homecoming. Nick Dadamio led the team with two touchdowns and 95 yards receiving. After the defense held strong in the first quarter, Matt Mullins and the offense scored twice on a 70 yard Mullins-Dadamio pass, and a 56 yard punt return by Trevor Cola. In the third quarter, CV got on the scoreboard again with Nick Dadamio scoring again with a 4 yard reception. The defense came back to help the team again with Matt Schaffer recovering Oneonta quarterback Brandon Southard’s fumble deep in Yellowjacket’s territory. This win makes it 4-0 overall for Chenango Valley, and 1-0  in league play. Next week, the most anticipated game of the season takes place when the Chenango Forks Blue Devils face off against the Warriors in the bitter CF vs. CV rival game. Chenango Valley has not won against Forks in twelve years. However, Chenango Valley football has not been this strong in a long time, and many on the team feel that the Saturday, September 30th game will be one to watch. As the cool fall air makes it’s way into Chenango Valley High School, the Warriors will have to not only overcome a fierce rivalry, but also a Section 4 champion team. Make sure to attend this Saturday’s game, it will be one exciting match-up.

The Warrior Report Podcast

Being a new website, most of the work that goes into the first day is very boring. Choosing the template, typing up all the titles, saving, saving, saving, then deleting what you don’t want. I originally wanted a multi-page website, but decided that the simpler one page “Drudge Report” style would be better. In addition to the website, The Warrior Report Podcast will be avalible very soon through iTunes and other online podcast subscription sites. Hopefully, by the middle of the week sometime you can hear me and some other Warriors talk to you directly from The Warrior Report HQ. Check back for details and I hope you are enjoying the website.

Warriors tame Dryden

Win makes it 3-0 for CV, is Forks next? Chenango Valley High School – 9/16/06 Everyone is talking about it. CV having a winning season? It’s the big question on everyone’s minds as the Warriors beat the Dryden Lions 36-18 Saturday. This win keeps CV in first place in the STAC Section 4 Division III (B) standings. However, If you ask any Warrior student or fan, they will tell you that the only game that matters all season is the well anticipated (and sometimes dreaded) Chenango Forks match. Normally, the Valley vs. Forks game attracts students, teachers, and parents from both districts hoping to see their team win. In the past for most CV fans, seeing the Warriors just get a touchdown against the State Champ Blue Devils has been exciting enough. This year, a lot is riding on the shouders of the R.T.L. squad as they keep winning more and more games. Next week for the Homecoming game, CV faces off against Oneonta. September 30th brings the Blue Devils into the valley to see if they can humiliate them again, or if maybe, just maybe the Warriors will win, and life will be good on this side of the river.

The Warrior Report

When I thought about starting this website, a lot of things went through my mind. Would anyone come to the site? Will there be enough material to cover for frequent stories? Will anyone care? However, the one thing that made me create The Warrior Report is that there is no real Chenango Valley news getting to the students. It’s someone tainted by the time it reaches us, sometimes because obviously us kids can’t handle the real truth. By this, I certainly don’t mean that with this website as my tool that I am trying to under mind the school with a beacon of truth. I just want to give students news, information, and opinion that they find useful and interesting. More contributors will be on the writing staff in a short while, and always, if you have something to say or contribute e-mail it to cvwarriors@gmail.com – it will only help the cause. For now, happy surfing and I hope you will enjoy the site. I’m off the the football game now. GO WARRIORS!
