CHENANGO VALLEY WARRIORS: 13
CHENANGO FORKS BLUE DEVILS: 23

Bitter rivals – it was quite the game.

Even though a Ricky Ruffo kickoff return sparked a fire under CV’s offense and a Rocco Testani touchdown pass to Josh Klepfer gave CV an early 6-3 lead, Chenango Forks beat Chenango Valley for the 15th time in a row – this time on a cool but gorgeous autumn day in front of the home crowd.

Forks scored three touchdowns and a field goal – but only held at 10-6 advantage at halftime. The highlights for the Warriors were Ricky Ruffo’s 87-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter which brought CV back into the game and Rocco Testani’s 11-yard bullet to Josh Klepfer in the end zone in the second quarter to put CV up 6-3. They would never regain the lead…

Five-way tie possible in Class B

Check out Section4Football.com for an amazing scenario that rivals a tie in the electoral college this November. There very well could be a five-way, I said five-way tie in Class B Division III. Check out this link for an explanation:

www.section4football.com

If the certain scenario happens, it will be Chenango Valley, Chenango Forks, Windsor, Oneonta, and Norwich all tied up with 2-2 divisional records.

Of course, part of the scenario involves CV beating Forks this weekend.

The plot thickens…

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THIS GAME IN HIGH QUALITY
The Windsor football stadium is one of the most scenic high school fields around. The grass is perfectly trimmed, deep white lines run from sideline to sideline, and the flag blows freely in the cool October air. It was a perfect day for football.

However, not for Chenango Valley.

Chenango Valley all but threw away a spot in the playoffs after a second divisional loss to Windsor Saturday. The Black Knights beat the Warriors 21-13 and Chenango Valley now has a lonely spot in last place in Division III.

Dylan Kay sparked the an uncharacteristic run-based offense for Windsor, rushing for 175 yards and a touchdown in the Black Knights’ win.

CV-Windsor matchup should be wild.

Weather forecast for gameday

Those who don’t remember last year’s game need to be reminded that the newly brewed CV-Windsor divisional rivalry is important. Really important.

It all started in 2006 when Windsor put an end to CVs playoffs hopes in the final six seconds –  scoring a touchdown and 2-point conversion to beat the Warriors 15-14.

Last year in 2007, it was the game that everyone was talking about. Coming off Forks week, CV played incredibly well against one of Class B’s elite teams, but no one cared about the 34-26 win where a Windsor drive was stopped at CV’s doorstep in the fourth quarter . A sideline skirmish between Brian Stinson and several Windsor players energized both sides in an emotional, hard-fought, Homecoming game.

This season, Chenango Valley, Chenango Forks and Windsor are no longer the Week 5 powerhouses. Class B is wide open in terms of playoff birth – each team needs to win every game they can to make it in. With Norwich undefeated, Oneonta shocking Forks and Windsor injured, this is gonna be one heck of a ride until the playoffs.

Chenango Valley- 19
Windsor – 16

CHENANGO VALLEY WARRIORS: 42
ELMIRA SOUTHSIDE GREEN HORNETS: 13

This is Chenango Valley football.

On Homecoming Saturday – the same day that Class B was shocked by Oneonta’s surprise win over the ‘evil empire’ – the Chenango Valley Warriors (the good guys) convincingly beat Class A Elmira Southside 42-13. Five different Warriors scored a total of six times for the home crowd – four by run, one by pass, and one kickoff return to the house.

Junior Devin Carroll led the offense with 126 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a big game coming off last week’s disappointing trip to Norwich. Offense, defense and special teams all were crisp – classic Valley football. It appears that CV now has the team unity and confidence that wasn’t always present in the first three games this season. It’s only one game, but it’s a huge step in the right direction for CV.

Let’s be real here. This win was against a 1-3 team whose only win came off of dismal Susquehanna Valley. But it was a blowout like it should have been if CV has some talent.

Chenango Valley can only look ahead. That means Windsor…this should be fun.
