Things

 

are looking up for Horde football heading into the Stillwater game Friday night. At 4-0 Granville looks to knock off the single-win Warriors and go into the post season for the first time in a few years. 5-0, with a worst case scenario 5-2 season in the cloudy future.

Tests in the succeeding weeks will show where the team ranks in terms of the post season.

Schuylerville is always dangerous especially a winless squad. And then, on to Cambridge who, like the resurgent Horde, have yet to lose in 2009.

After that Granville will be seeded, but where is the question.

Maybe third behind Hoosick Falls and Cambridge who are blowing opponents out racking up what I have heard called “Newspaper scores” as in scores others see in the paper and say ‘Wow did that team get blown up!’

Granville’s scores are less gaudy, but witnesses might argue tell less about the team.

Do these teams call off the dogs at the end of the games?

Not sure.

Head coaches Aaron and Mario Torres are focused on getting some of their young players game experience with an eye to the future; younger players have gotten playing time in the last three contests which might not pay dividends now, but next year.

Granville has not been tested since week one. However, if the Corinth game was any kind of indicator the Horde should do all right. Corinth has gone on to beat some pretty good football teams after losing to Granville.

The final game of the regular season is one that holds a particular attraction for this reporter as I was standing there on an incredulous sideline as the men in black (and white) handed the game to Cambridge with an extra third down play. All rooting aside that was a bad call that really deflated a Horde team battling and beating the Indians on their home field. You could see the air come out of the team on that one.

Still, should be a great contest.
