There were 24 games on the Section 2 high school football schedule for the final Friday of September. Big road wins, close games and upsets highlighted the halfway point of the gridiron season. Other games saw some of the Capital Region's most highly ranked teams continue to roll in 2022.
Let's begin with some rivalry action. Colonie took the short trip across town to #1 CBA and got hammered 48-13, while #2 Schuylerville visited #19 Broadalbin-Perth and left with a 44-0 victory. #3 Glens Falls traveled to Cohoes and shutdown the home team 47-6. In what was definitely one of the most anticipated match-ups of the weekend, #4 Shenendehowa traveled to #5 Shaker. The Plainsmen and the Bison didn't not disappoint the packed house in Latham. Shen won in overtime 20-14.
#9 Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk traveled out of Section 2 on Friday as they took on O'Neil of Section 9. O'Neil is located in Highland Falls, NY, just south of West Point on the Hudson River.
