Main-Endwell Wins Number One Showdown In High School Football
Spartan Stadium was packed with a Standing Room Only crowd Saturday afternoon on Homecoming Weekend as Maine-Endwell and Union-Endicott collided in a battle of the unbeatens. When it was over the Spartans were still undefeated as they downed the Tigers 28-7
. Bruising Fullback Nick Sorrenti scored a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Spartans as they held U-E scoreless until late in the second half. The Tigers had several penetrations deep inside the red-zone but M-E's defense barred the door each time until the second defensive unit gave up a score with time running out.
The hard-hitting battle caused Maine-Endwell to play much of the game without standout Wingback Luis Uceta who suffered an ankle injury in the middle of the first quarter and returned for one defensive unit play before hobbling to the sideline. Darnell Woolfolk replaced him but also left briefly with an ankle injury and then suffered leg cramps later in the game that sidelined him for a time again.
Coming into Saturday's game U-E was rated the top team in Class A in New York State while M-E topped the pack in the Class B rankings. A huge crowd jammed Spartan Stadium in Endwell with stands on both sides of the field jammed and those who could not get seats ringing the fence that is on the outside of the track and playing surface.
