Football semifinal set for Spartans

Staff Report

Unatego and Elmira Notre Dame will each take seven-game winning streaks into their Section Four Class D football 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).
