Moshier: New Hartford now No. 4 in state

New Hartford High School’s football team moved up a notch in this week’s Class A state rankings, the Spartans (4-0) now No. 4 behind top-ranked Sweet Home, No. 2 Burnt Hills and No. 3 Rochester Aquinas.


New Hartford’s move comes after fourth-ranked Rye High, last year’s Class B state champion, had its 27-game winning streak snapped by a 13-7 loss to No. 10 Eastchester. One of those 27 straight victories for Rye was a 16-12 win over Oneida in last year’s Class B state championship game at the Carrier Dome.


The state’s longest active winning streak is now 20, and it belongs to defending Class C state champion and top-ranked Jamestown Southwestern, a 49-8 winner over perennial Class B power Lackawanna last week! Section III has three ranked “C” teams, including No. 5 Bishop Ludden, No. 8 General Brown and No. 11 Cazenovia.


Fulton (4-0) is No. 16 in the Class A state poll, and the Red Raiders meet No. 4 New Hartford in a nonleague crossover next week. Whitesboro (4-0) remains an “honorable mention” in Class A.


Westmoreland (4-0) is firmly entrenched as the state’s top-ranked Class D team, followed by Dundee of Section V, Delhi of Section IV, and Maple Grove of Section VI. Watertown’s Immaculate Heart Central is No. 6 and Weedsport is No. 11.
