Youth football playing for title

T he Whitehall Youth Football fifth- and sixth-grade grade team advanced in the post season tournament with a 19-13 win over Fort Edward under the lights and snow at the Whitehall Recreation Center Saturday night. The win avenged a loss to the Forts the previous week.

Whitehall was able to score in the second quarter after a long drive ended with a Jimmer Rozell 1one-yard touchdown run.

The conversion failed, so it was 6-0. The score stayed that way until the third quarter. Whitehall received the ball first to start the half and drove the length of the field only to see the drive stall inside the 10-yard line. Fort Edward then broke a big play for a 60-yard touchdown run to tie the game. Whitehall came right back on the next drive and drove 60 yards, relying on Jacob Stoodley for most of the drive. Stoodley got the score and Shane Amerio ran in the conversion for a 13-6 lead.

 But once again the Forts broke a big play on third down and scored to tie the game. The game remained tied until late in the fourth quarter. Whitehall was able to force a fumble and recovered the ball on the Fort Edward 35 with less than eight  minutes left. From there the Railroaders drove the ball in chunks of 3 and 4 yards a time, playing old time Whitehall football, ending with another Stoodley touchdown run from twoyards out for a 19-13 lead.  With 2:35 left in the game, the Forts reverted to the passing game and Whitehall was able to defense 4 passes to take over with 18 seconds left to seal the win.

Whitehall will now play in the tournament championship game in Corinth at 8 p.m., Saturday under the lights.
