The Glens Falls Indians ended the Chenango Forks Blue Devils hopes of a fourth consecutive New York State Public High School Athletic Association football championship Saturday at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse with a 47 - 39 victory.

The Blue Devils came into the game riding a 23 game winning streak and ranked number one in Class B competition in the state.  The game went back and fourth with both offenses stealing the show.  The contest was tied at 27-27 at the end of the first half.

Glens Falls was up 40-33 in the closing minute of the fourth quarter when Connor Borchardt caught a Cody Bogue 16 yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to 40-39.  The Blue Devils elected to go for two points but standout L.J Watson was stopped short of the goal line and that left Glens Falls up by a point.

A Forks onside kick with :37 left backfired as Glens Falls recovered and ran the ball into the end zone for the score and the game closed in favor of the Indians.
