Delaware League champion Margaretville beat Gilboa, 7-0, during a regular-season game Sept. 18.
“We’re a totally different team now,” said McGlynn, whose team won its last two games of the regular season to qualify for sectional play. “We’re much more organized, we play a very good possession game and we’ve moved some people around to make us that much stronger. Hopefully we can do something against Margaretville. They have a very good team and there’s not much of a drop-off in talent when they sub in.”
The other Class D sectional semifinal pits third-seeded Davenport (13-3) of the DL against No. 2 seed Cherry Valley-Springfield (16-1) at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the WNSC. CV-S beat Edmeston in overtime, 3-2, in the Tri-Valley League championship game Oct. 19 at the WNSC.

Unatego semi set
Unatego and Elmira Notre Dame will each take seven-game winning streaks into their Section Four Class D semifinal at 4 p.m. Saturday at Binghamton Alumni Stadium.
The Spartans (7-1) won Division V of the Section Four Football Conference with a 5-0 record against division opponents. END (7-1) went 5-0 for the D-VII title.
Neither team has lost since Week 1, when Unatego fell, 54-13, at Chenango Forks and END forfeited to two-time defending Class D sectional champion Tioga because of a lack of eligible players.
D-VI champion Tioga (8-0) will play D-VII runner-up Spencer Van-Etten (6-2) in the other semifinal at 1 p.m. Saturday at Binghamton Alumni Stadium.
Saturday’s winners will meet for the sectional crown at noon Nov. 19 at the same site.
On Monday, Section Four also announced Week 9 matchups for non-playoff teams. At 7 p.m. Friday, Delhi (3-5) will visit Oneonta High (1-7), Bainbridge-Guilford (2-6) will host Oxford (1-7), and Walton (5-3) will be at Sidney (4-4).
