Cardiac Cats do it again; 'Burgh earns redemption against B-P

Cohoes' Anthony Fogarty looks for running room during the first half of Saturday's Class B quarterfinal against Cobleskill-Richmondville at Alumni Field. He scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter of a 39-20 come-from-behind victory. (Photos by Tom Killips - The Record).

If you were there, you heard Fogarty's frustration walking into the locker room.
"Lemme just collect my thoughts!" he yelled at no one in particular.

The Tigers, for the fourth time at home this season, came from behind to post another thrilling victory over a tough Cobleskill team in less than desirable conditions.

Cohoes' Chris Dissonell watches as the ball tumbles away during Saturday's game. Two key turnovers in the second half - a blocked punt and an interception - led to touchdowns for the Tigers, sparking their comeback.

Cobleskill's Dillon Greene (10) jumps for joy after the Bulldogs recover a fumble in the first half of Saturday's game.

Cohoes' Josh LeMay drags Cobleskill's Vincent Whittaker to the ground. LeMay slipped under a screen pass in the third quarter for his first career interception, returning it 21 yards to the end zone for the touchdown that narrowed Cohoes within one point. The Tigers trailed 20-6 at halftime.

Cohoes quarterback Josh Floeser looks to juke a Cobleskill tackler. He rushed for 42 yards and passed for 25 more, including a 10-yard touchdown strike to Jeff Lonczak in the second quarter.
"We just finally realized that this will be the last game we play on this home field, especially for the seniors," Fogarty said. "We don’t want to play a stupid, old crossover. We just want to win the game and get that sectional championship."

The Tigers are a little bit tired of falling behind so often, but so far, they've almost always found a way to get back in the game.

"All I know is, once we do get punched in the mouth, we come out swinging," said LeMay. "We don’t stop until it’s over."

Cohoes will play Schalmont in a Class B semifinal next weekend.

Later Saturday, Lansingburgh hosted Broadalbin-Perth in a rematch of a regular season crossover from two weeks ago, when the Patriots knocked off the No. 1-ranked Knights in Troy.

The rematch was a different story.

Tyrone Nichols rushed for 243 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 13 attempts and the Lansingburgh defense got the job done in a 35-0 victory over the Patriots.

Lansingburgh advances to face Hudson Falls Friday in a Class B semifinal.

"It was redemption. That was the word we used the past two weeks. Redemption," said Nichols. "We’ve been waiting for this day ever since we lost on this field. Everybody felt what it felt like to lose and we didn’t want to lose again."

Check out the full story in Sunday's edition of The Record, as well as the story on Troy High's 40-7 thunder-shortened victory over Glens Falls in the Class A quarters. Shatiek Lewis rushed for 282 yards and a pair of scores for a Troy team decimated by injuries, as four starters were relegated to the sideline.
