Fullback Jack Moorehead scored on a 1-yard run in overtime Saturday as John Glenn
earned a 20-14 comeback victory over Babylon in a matchup of Section 11 unbeatens.
The Knights, ranked 14th in Class B by the New York State Sportswriters Association, held the Panthers on downs to start the OT, and Moorehead scored one play after running back Austin Cohen gained 11 yards to the 1 against the state's third-ranked Class C squad.
Glenn was held off the scoreboard until a short punt set the Knights up at the Panthers 40 early in the fourth quarter. Ryan Rielly followed with a 45-yard TD to Pat Pascal two plays later. Cohen capped the next possession with a 4-yard run for a score.
Glenn also defeated Babylon in overtime last season, in a matchup of unbeaten teams before the Panthers earned revenge in the sectional playoffs.
First down: Austin Dwyer ran for 302 yards and four touchdowns as Hornell, ranked 11th in Class B, upended No. 1 Bath 43-22.
"Our kids played hard, their kids played hard. Itís what you expect when two heavyweights get together," Hornell head coach Gene Mastin told The Leader "Iím very pleased with what we did. I think our kids overachieved a little bit this year and Iím pretty happy about that."
Hornell turned the ball over on its first possession and then responded with three straight scoring drives, the latter two capped by Dwyer TD runs of 28 and 47 yards.
Bath inherited the No. 1 position last week when Lansingburgh was upset in Section 2 action.
Second down: Rye prepped for the Section 1 Class A playoffs with a record seventh straight win over Harrison, 21-7, in their 79-game rivalry.
The Garnets, ranked eighth in the state and coming off consecutive NYSPHSAA Class B titles, will host reigning Class A sectional champion Nyack on Friday.
"We had playoffs in mind. But Harrison is the biggest game of the season for us," Rye senior Cole McCormack told The Journal News. after rushing 25 times for 158 yards and three TDs. "We made both of them a reality today."
"Rye is just so big and physical," Harrison coach Art Troilo said. "We average about 185 pounds on the line and they average about 240. Our kids played their hearts out
