In the fourth quarter, the Burghers engineered an impressive drive, with great contributions from Joe Schuster, Brandon Schwarz and Ian Hayes. Joe Schuster took the ball in for a touchdown to tie the game, and Brandon Schwarz ran up the middle on the extra-point conversion to take the lead.
With less than seven minutes left, the Tomahawks got possession of the ball. Using up more than five minutes of the clock, they drove the ball 70 yards downfield for a touchdown. The kick attempt was good, putting the Tomahawks up 14-7.
The Burghers then had about 90 seconds left for an attempt to tie the game. After 40 yards and a resilient offensive attack, they just ran out of time.
The Warrensburg coaching staff was proud of each player's effort Saturday, with coaches stating that it was just one of those days when the opponent plays a little bit better.
This Saturday, the Burghers meet up against Ticonderoga on the Warrensburg recreation field. The junior squad begins play at 10 a.m., and the seniors take to the field immediately afterwards. All are welcome to attend and see these young athletes play their hearts out.
