High school football: Week Five in review

Here are your updated Section II football standings, the Week Five scoreboard and the latest Record Power Polls.

I will have a column on the week that was as well as your statistical leaders here on the blog sometime early next week.

For the first time, I've ordered the standings by the quarterpoint tiebreaker. The first tiebreaker, of course, is winning percentage. If two teams are tied in that category, I've put the team with the higher number of quarterpoints on top.

(Still missing QPs on Coxsackie-Athens-Taconic from Week Two and Cohoes at Cairo-Durham from Week Five)

The Record's Week Five Power Polls
Class AA
Team, League, Overall, Last Week
1, Troy High, 4-0, 5-0, 1
The Flying Horses saw their streak of consecutive shutouts snapped at four games in last week’s 33-12 victory over Saratoga Springs. Troy faces another tough road battle at Niskayuna this Friday.
2, Shaker, 4-0, 5-0, 2
The Blue Bison rolled over La Salle last week, 40-7. The Cadets had won the last five games in the series by a combined score of 165-51.
3, Shenendehowa, 4-0, 5-0, 3
The Plainsmen received 173 rushing yards from Bronson Greene and 97 more from Tony Fusco in a 20-14 victory over CBA last weekend.
4, Ballston Spa, 4-1, 4-1, 4
The Scotties used 242 rushing yards from Tony Gargiulo in a thrilling come-from-behind 35-31 victory over Guilderland in Week Five.
5, Christian Brothers Academy, 2-2, 3-2, 5
The Brothers could have played for overtime against Shen, but CBA gambled in throwing the ball with under two minutes to play in a time game and the Plainsmen turned an interception into a last-minute victory. Still, CBA proved it can play wit the top teams in Class AA.

Class A
Team, League, Overall, Last Week
1, Burnt Hills, 3-0, 5-0, 1
The Spartans rolled to a 42-6 victory over Glens Falls thanks to a kick return touchdown and 96 rushing yards from BRandon Beatty.
2, Lansingburgh, 2-0, 4-1, 2
The Knights came through in the clutch against Averill Park, as a late fourth quarter gamble on fourth-and-one gave Lansingburgh the inside track to the No. 1 seed out of the Southeast Division.
3, Amsterdam, 3-0, 5-0, 3
The Rugged Rams are off to a blazing start one season after missing the postseason. Amsterdam gets a major test Friday night at division rival Burnt Hills.
4, Averill Park, 2-1, 3-2, 4
The Warriors couldn’t pull off a come-from-behind victory over Lansingburgh, but Averill Park hung with one of the preseason favorites until the final minutes. Can AP be a factor in the postseason?
5, Gloversville, 2-1, 2-3, NR
The Huskies received 390 rushing yards from three players in a 21-13 victory over South Glens Falls last Friday night.

Class B
Team, League, Overall, Last Week
1, Schalmont, 3-0, 5-0, 2
The Sabres certainly on the right track to defending their first-ever Section II Super Bowl title in 2009. Schalmont has outscored opponents 226-26 through five games in 2010.
2, Albany Academy, 2-0, 4-1, 1
The Cadets dropped a non-division game to crosstown rival Bishop Maginn on Saturday afternoon, battling injuries to key playters throughout the game. All players are expected to be healthy for Saturday’s game against Cohoes.
3, Ravena, 3-0, 5-0, 4
The Indians squeaked out a 21-19 victory over Hudson last week to maintain their perfect record. Ravena plays a non-divisoion game at Averill Park on Friday night in what should be a good postseason tune-up for both squads.
4, Hudson Falls, 2-1, 2-3, NR
The Tigers shocked Schuylerville on Saturday afternoon and pulled into a tie for second place in the West Division. Since Hudson Falls owns the quarterpoint tie breaker, the Tigers would earn a home playoff game if the season ended today.
5, Schuylerville, 2-1, 4-1, 3
The Black Horses allowed as many points Saturday against Hudson Falls (32) as they had in their previous four games (32).

Class C
Team, League, Overall, Last Week
1, Hoosick Falls, 5-0, 5-0, 1
The Panthers rolled to a big victory over rival Hoosic Valley on Saturday. Senior quarterback and linebacker Mike Brewster threw for three touchdowns and intercepted a pair of passes on defense.
2, Chatham, 5-0, 5-0, 2
The Panthers clinched their fourth straight Section II Class C South Division title with a 28-0 victory over Watervliet Friday night. Josh Keyes ran for 244 yards and three touchdowns (he also caught a TD pass) on 23 attempts.
3, Fonda-Fultonville, 3-1, 3-1, 3
The Braves will play at Catholic Central in a rain make-up game Sunday night at 6 p.m.
4, Greenwich, 4-1, 4-1, 5
The Witches burst Tamarac’s bubble on Friday night, posting an impressive 56-12 victory over the previously unbeaten Bengals.
5, Mechanicville, 2-2, 2-3, NR
The Red Raiders not only won their sixth straight Indian Bowl game over Stillwater, 34-0, but also snuck back into the playoff picture in the North Division. They control their destiny as Mechanicville hosts Lake George, the team it trails in the standings, Friday night.

Class D
Team, League, Overall, Last Week
1, Cambridge, 4-0, 4-0, 2
The Indians made a major statement last week, topping Rensselaer 30-0 on the Rams’ home field. Are those two teams destined to meet again in the Class D Super Bowl?
2, Rensselaer, 3-1, 3-1, 1
The Rams were never able to get anything going offensively in a loss to Cambridge last week. Senior quarterback Tim Foust, who had thrown for over 400 yards in his first three games, was limited to 45 yards by the Indians.
3, Whitehall, 3-1, 3-1, 3
The Railroaders vaulted into a second-place tie with Rensselaer in the Class D standings after defeating Fort Edward. At this point, Whitehall would hold the quarterpoint tiebreaker.

Amsterdam at Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Fri., 7 p.m.: Both teams enter at 5-0, but just how good is Amsterdam?

Hudson Falls at Schalmont, Fri., 7 p.m.: Can the Tigers make it two upsets in a row?

Lake George at Mechanicville, Fri., 7 p.m.: Can the Red Raiders catch the team in front of them in the North Division standings?

Hoosick Falls at Fonda-Fultonville, Sat., 1 p.m.: This non-division game won't count toward either team's playoff standings, but it will be a great test between potential Class C semifinal opponents.


Rensselaer at Bishop Gibbons, Sat., 1 p.m.: With the Rams reeling and the Golden Knights on a roll, will momentum shift back the other direction?
