Sports Home Opener

Horde opens at home

The Granville Golden Horde kicks off the 2010 high school football season at home against the Stillwater Warriors at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4.
This will be the second year in a row Granville has opened its football season in front of the home crowd at Sam Eppolito Field.

Co-head coaches Aaron and Mario Torres said the coaching staff is excited about the upcoming season and looks forward to the challenges the new season presents. A successful 7-on-7 season, excellent August football camp and good numbers have the group upbeat about the seven-game season ahead and beyond.
Home game football operations will return to normal in 2010 as no building project activity will take place near the football field or parking areas, officials said.
Granville opened its 2009 campaign with a thrilling 14-6 overtime victory against Corinth.
Following the Corinth victory the Horde defeated Mechanicville, 34-20; Hoosic Valley, 33-20; Salem, 37-7; Stillwater, 38-7; and Schuylerville, 16-6, under the lights before falling to Cambridge, 36-0, on the road to close out the regular season.
Granville met the Fonda-Fultonville Braves in the first round of the playoffs and notched the first postseason win for the team in a number of years, 29-14.
As Mario Torres said, “Every team but one loses their last game.” Granville fell, 32-0, to the 8-0 eventual state semi-finalist Hoosick Falls Panthers to close the season with a 7-2 record.
