Photo by Dan LentzCody Renwick breaks a tackle on a run around the right end for a first down in the first quarter of Friday-s game against visiting Whitney Point.

That six-point lead Sidney took deep into the second quarter on two field goals by Mike Guerriere _ the latter a 48-yarder _ turned into an eight-point halftime deficit.

Visiting Greene then scored 37 points in the second half en route to a 51-12 Section Four Football Conference Division V victory Friday night.

"They're tough," Sidney coach Jeff Matthews said of the Trojans, who improved to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in division. "We had some trouble containing (quarterback Nate) Whittaker. He's so dangerous when he gets the ball. I think our guys were shocked by his speed."

Guerriere hit a 29-yard field goal in the first quarter and then made it 6-0, with 7 minutes, 15 seconds left in the second quarter by hitting from 48 yards, 1-yard longer than he converted from last week in Sidney's 30-14 victory over Delhi.

But Whittaker tied the score on an 80-yard punt return 3:50 before halftime.

Greene then squibbed the ensuing kickoff and recovered it.

Dan Carlin's 5-yard run with 2:44 left in the half and Whittaker's two-point run made it 14-6.

Sidney (2-1, 0-1) then recovered an onsides kick to start the second half, but Greene intercepted quarterback Dylan Umbra on the next play. Whittaker's 5-yard run capped that drive and then he hit Josh Clink on a 43-yard scoring pass on the Trojans' next possession.

"(Clink) made a nice reception off a deflected pass (about 20 yards downfield)," Matthews said of the scoring play that made it 28-6. Whittaker then hit Carlin on a two-point pass to make it a 24-point spread.

Sidney briefly halted Greene's momentum on Zach Finch's 2-yard scoring run with 2:44 left in the third quarter, pulling to 28-12, but Tyler Beckwith capped Greene's next drive with an 11-yard touchdown run.

Guerriere led Sidney with 62 yards rushing on 13 carries.

Aaron Wood made three receptions for 118 yards and carried eight times for 33 yards for the Warriors, who play at Bainbridge-Guilford on Friday.

The Spartans scored on their first three drives, including a 14-play, 65-yarder to open the game. Newman capped the drive on a 4-yard run.

After Unatego forced a three-and-out, Kiss finished off Unatego's second drive with a 4-yard run and the Spartans' third drive ended on a 1-yard run by Kiss that made it 19-0.
