Football finishing strong: Horde manhandles Coxsackie-Athens


B y Jaime Thomas

Golden Horde football played strong for the second week in a row, resulting in a 47-14 win over Coxsackie-Athens on Oct. 20. Junior Evan Hoagland had 205 yards with 20 carries and three touchdowns.  Ronnie Taylor scored two touchdowns and gained 105 yards during the game, the first 100-yard game of his varsity career.

Coach Mario Torres said the boys showed tremendous team defense, allowing the Indians only a 39 yards rushing for the game. In addition to a touchdown, Torres said senior Luke Hahn had tackles in the double digits. Captain Josh Scribner was strong on defense as well, and sophomore Brad Hannah made a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown.

Torres said his kids are playing hard as a team, and they are in a good position to end the season.

“I hope Saturday is no different than last Saturday and the Saturday before that; they deserve to go out with a win,” Torres said.

The Horde will play their ninth and final game of the season this Saturday, Oct. 27, against Lake George at home at 2 p.m.
