Warrensburg football players take a break after a recent practice workout.
The undefeated Cambridge football team showed both their fans and foes Saturday, Sept. 24 why they’re ranked the top team in Section II Class D football, with a 42-0 romp over Warrensburg.
With an efficient attack via air and ground, Cambridge racked up 359 total yards.
Talented Cambridge Freshman Quarterback Ethan English completed 8 of 17 passes for 102 yards.
The Indians contained Warrensburg’s offense, limiting the Burghers to 76 total yards. This was a week after Warrensburg tallied no less than 507 yards in a game with Whitehall, a feat that showed a resurrection of their offense.
Burgher coach Mike Leonbruno said this reversal in his team’s momentum for the season was frustrating.
“We’ve been getting a lot better every week, but this week’s game blew my mind,” he said. “It was like we were playing in slow motion — We just didn’t come out on the field to play.”
Leonbruno voiced high compliments for Cambridge and their program.
“They play mistake-free football — they are like a machine,” he said. “The players do their job — they are there to win.”
Leonbruno said his team is now focusing on the big showdown at Friday Oct. 1 between the Burghers and Lake George — a rivalry that goes back more than a half-century. The game is at 7 p.m. under the lights in Lake George.
“I hope to get a better effort from our players,” he said. “It would be nice to have an upset.”
