Flying Horses let lead slip away; BH-BL wins third Super Bowl in four years

Turnovers crippled the Troy High Flying Horses in their bid for the school's first Super Bowl title since 2000.
Troy lost three fumbles and also threw an interception in Saturday's Section II Class A Super Bowl at Shenendehowa. The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Spartans defended their title by turning three of those into touchdowns in a 33-18 victory.

"It didn’t feel like we ever got into any real sync," Troy High head coach Jack Burger said. "It was like a heavyweight fight. There weren’t going to be a lot of 60 and 70 yard plays. They were going to make us work for them."

The Flying Horses (9-1) struck on an 83-yard run by Shatiek Lewis in the second quarter, drawing to within 7-6.
Jordan Canzeri scored on a two-yard run with 10 seconds to play in the second quarter, giving Troy a five-point edge heading into halftime.

The Spartans (10-0) struck back with a 62-yard touchdown pass from Phil Neumann to Brandon Beatty in the third quarter and Burnt Hills added three more scores in the fourth en route to the victory.

Burnt Hills faces Malone in a regional round game Friday at Shenendehowa.

Burnt Hills upended Troy 35-20 in the Class A semifinals a season ago, which was a major motivation for the Flying Horses, who certainly wanted another chance at the Spartans.

"We had some guys that were a little upset after the semifinals last year, but they had all year to battle back," Burger said. "It’s a great environment for the kids to play and this is where Troy football wants to be each and every year. We got beat by a good football team today and they’re going to go a long way. They’re definitely going to represent Section II very proudly."

Troy High's Shatiek Lewis scampers for part of his 83-yard touchdown run in the second quarter of Saturday's game. He and fellow junior running back Jordan Canzeri each eclipsed the 1,200-yard rushing mark in the Super Bowl.

Burnt Hills' Brandon Beatty looks for running room against the Troy High defense Saturday night. He finished with 125 rushing yards and 62 receiving yards in the Spartans' victory.

The Burnt Hills faithful packed the stands at Shen, as did the Troy fans on the other side. Both schools brought their bands to the game.
