Rivals Clash On Gridiron at Alumni Stadium
The Binghamton Patriots host their long-time rivals from Union-Endicott at Alumni Stadium tomorrow night at 7. Both are coming off victories last weekend.
The Patriots held off the Vestal Golden Bears last Friday 14-13 to up their record to 3-1. The Tigers demolished Ithaca at Ty Cobb Stadium 55-6 to move even on the season at 2-2. One of the keys for the Patriots will be the running of speedy back Amman Weaver. Weaver can outrun most of the defensive secondaries in Section 4. His only problem has been holding onto the football. Fumbles have been an issue over the first four games.
Based on their last two outings the Tigers are playing their best football of the season. They defeated Vestal two weekends ago 29-6 scoring 22 unanswered points in the second half. Then last weekend U-E ripped Ithaca with an explosive running and passing attack. Sammy Davis ran for 205 yards and three touchdowns. Equally impressive was the play of wide receiver C.J. Krowiak. He returned the game's opening kickoff 79 yards to set up his team's first score which he notched from 12 yards out. He added another rushing touchdown and then added a pair of TD grabs from quarterback Joey Orlando to cap a huge game.
Tomorrow night's game will be aired on News Radio 1290 WNBF. WNBF will also broadcast Saturday's Norwich - Maine-Endwell game at M-E. That game has been moved to a 2:30 kickoff to accommodate student exams held earlier in the day.
