The ball seemed slippery on Friday, with the Burghers giving away the ball four times due to fumbles, Warrensburg Coach Mike Leonbruno said.
"We had four turnovers that killed us," he said. "We began the game flat, but the Lake George players came out ready to win - they played really hard - they gave it 110 percent the whole game."
The highlight for the Burghers was quarterback Brendan Frye's goal line recovery of a fumble by Meroski, and Frye's ensuing 100-yard touchdown run, Leonbruno said.
"Frye had a great game - he played his heart out," the coach said, noting Frye had eight passing completions for 105 yards, and gained 91 yards on the ground. "But we just didn't execute our plays the way we should have."
