Dave Pledger had seven tackles and a fumble recovery to lead the Stallions’ defense, which got six tackles from Andrew Ruff.
“This was an absolutely huge road win for us,” said Terry, whose team will receive a forfeit victory this coming week — Potsdam’s NFA franchise folded — for the franchise’s first four-game winning streak in its five-year history. “We’ve got to learn to play with a lead, which is something we haven’t had too much experience with. But our guys dug right in and came right back at them. That’s (Troy’s) first home loss in years. They were shocked.”
The Stallions, who will be 4-1 after this week’s forfeit, are off until July 13’s home game against Cortland. That will start a three-game homestand at Hartwick College’s Wright Stadium for the Stallions, who will host Watertown on July 20 and Utica on July 27. All three games will begin at 6:30 p.m.
