Section 3 bows out of State football tournament

This weekend was a hard one for Section III Football.

All five teams representing Section III in the State Football Tournament lost this weekend and were eliminated.

In Class AA, the Elmira Express came back to beat CBA 24-18. CBA, who was stung by the injury bug, kept the score close throughout the game but could not complete a pass on their last drive.

In Class A, Carthage was eliminated with a 43-7 loss to Union-Endicott.

Cazenovia scored what was the potential game-tying touchdown in the waning seconds of regulation in the Class B opening round game against Maine Endwell. However, the Lakers went for the two-point conversion and the win but fell just inches short, losing 35-34.

In Class C, General Brownâ??s season came to an end with a 35-18 loss to Chenango Forks.

Finally, Herkimer, representing Class D, lost to Tioga 43-13.
