Junior Burghers tangle with Lake George, Fort Edward

That day in Lake George, the junior teams met up with Warrensburg outscoring Lake George 18-14.

Jacob Johnson, on the backs of his lineman, ran for 120 yards and racked up three touchdowns. Coach Gary Baker said Chris Wilson, Cole Lanfear, Evan Frasier, Corbin Miller, and Gary Hill maintained excellent blocking. Key receptions were also crucial with quarterback Dan Monthony finding Evan MacDuff and Greg Shambo several times.

If that wasn't enough action, both Little Burgher teams hosted Fort Edward Saturday for more exciting football.

The Junior Warrensburg squad came out with some smash-mouth football scoring immediately against Fort Edward. Burghers Jacob Johnson and John Kelly combined efforts to rush for more than 200 yards in their team's 18-7 win.

Everything the Burghers did seemed to work. Defenses beware, the little Burghers are one tough team to go against, as they had two successful reverses and Dan Monthony was able to throw accurate passes to Evan MacDuff.

Their defense was just as good with outstanding performances from Will Schwarz and John Kelly, as they held the Forts to one touchdown.

The Burgher Senior team wasn't as lucky as they played a tough one against the Senior Forts. This was a defensive struggle as the halftime score was tied at 0. Eventually the Burghers ran out of steam as the Forts ended scoring on two drives to finish the game 14-0.

This Saturday the Burghers play under the lights in Corinth. Junior team's game starts at 5:30 p.m. with the seniors playing right afterwards.
