Horde football opens Friday

I n a season stacked with tough opponents, it’s even more important than usual for the Granville football team to get a victory in its season-opener Friday night at Corinth.

The Horde and the Tomahawks are traditionally well-matched teams, and both could be challenged in a Section II’s rugged Class C North. So when the teams kick off at 7 p.m. Friday, it’s going to be important to both sides to get off to a quick start.

That’s especially true for the Horde, which opens its home season Saturday, Sept. 8 against Hoosick Falls, a Class C state semifinalist last season. The Panthers have not lost a Section II game in three years.

Last year, Corinth was of one of those games that got away, as the Tomahawks rallied for a 42-36 victory with a last-minute touchdown. In 2010, during Granville’s playoff run, the Horde put up a 48-20 victory, and won, 14-6, the year before.

Both teams have a lot of players returning who have a good deal of varsity experience. The Horde went 1-8 last season, and Corinth was 3-6.

The game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
