Moshier: Section III Football Power Rankings-Week 5

Section III Football

Power Rankings – Week 5



1.   Baldwinsville (4-0): Bees celebrated their 100th year of high school football with a 27-14 home win over previously unbeaten and state-ranked Liverpool last week, and they may soon be celebrating their first section title in 20 years.


2.   Liverpool (3-1): Not to worry, Warriors will bounce back in a big way against winless Central Square.


3.   Auburn (3-1): Running back Ismail Brooks already has rushed for over 1,000 yards and has scored 19 touchdowns, 17 in the last three games.


4.   Cicero-North Syracuse (3-1): Pulling out last week’s 23-16 victory over CBA with just 10 seconds remaining means the Northstars have a three-game winning streak. The bad news? They pay Baldwinsville a Week 5 visit.


5.   CBA (2-2): The Brothers have suffered back-to-back Class AA-1 losses to Baldwinsville and CBA, and they are in dire need of a Week 5 home win over Rome Free Academy.



1.   New Hartford (4-0): State-ranked No. 4 Spartans, next to unstoppable with Joe Carcone and Anthony Acevedo running wild, unleashed another weapon when junior QB Vinny Servadio completed 12 of 15 passes for 232 yards and five touchdowns in a 42-8 romp over Watertown.


2.   Fulton (4-0): Red Raiders rolled over Cortland 57-13, and will roll over Fowler before facing New Hartford in a nonleague matchup of state-ranked powers next week.


3.   Whitesboro (4-0): Sharing the load has helped the Warriors average 432 yards rushing in their last three wins.


4.   Indian River (3-1): After three straight impressive wins since that one-point, last-minute loss at Whitesboro, the North Country’s Warriors must like their Week 5 upset chances against unbeaten New Hartford.


5.   East Syracuse-Minoa (3-1): After suffering rare league loss to American Division rival Fulton, the Spartans rebounded with a 21-18 nonleague win over Carthage.



1.   Westhill (4-0): All-state end Dan Ross caught two more touchdown passes and the Warriors beat Homer 28-14.


2.   Marcellus (2-2): The Mustangs ended a two-game skid and QB Will Fiacchi threw for 519 yards and three touchdowns in a last-minute, 41-37 win over South Jefferson.


3.   South Jefferson (2-2): Spartans will lick their wounds, then take their Week 4 frustrations out on winless Phoenix.


4.   Chittenango (2-2): Hard to overlook the Bears, who lost their first two games to Marcellus and Westhill but last week roared back with a 21-point fourth quarter and a 30-19 win over previously-unbeaten Vernon-Verona-Sherrill.


5.   Oneida (3-1): Indians saw how Chittenango’s ball-control offense hamstrung VVS. Now, they get their chance to declaw the Bears.



1.   General Brown (4-0): The Lions aced what was expected to be their first real test, scoring on eight straight possessions and steamrolling to a 53-12 romp over previously-unbeaten Adirondack.


2.   Bishop Ludden (4-0): Gaelic Knights really did take it easy on winless Jordan-Elbridge, scoring all 48 of their points (including 35 in the second quarter) in the first half of a 48-0 victory.


3.   Cazenovia (4-0): Lakers have outscored teams 183-28 and now face winless Clinton.


4.   Cooperstown (4-0): Redskins fell behind previously-unbeaten Holland Patent 14-0 on the road, then used their running game and fourth-quarter turnovers to rally for an impressive 21-14 win.


 5.  Holland Patent (3-1): Golden Knights try to bounce back from home loss with a Class C East win at Ilion.



1.   Westmoreland (4-0): The ugliness continues as state-ranked No. 1 Bulldogs score 33 points in the first quarter, 47 points in the first half, and blank Morrisville-Eaton 54-0. Westmoreland has now outscored the opposition 210-18. Ouch!


2.   Watertown IHC (4-0): After outscoring their first three opponents 112-13, the Cavaliers had to work to turn back North Division rival Sandy Creek 14-7.


3.   Waterville (4-0): Losing senior co-captain Garth Curtis, their standout fullback and linebacker, to a broken leg doesn’t help. And QB Donnie March may miss a second straight game with an ankle injury.


4.   Dolgeville (3-1): OK, the Blue Devils lost to Notre Dame 12-7, but they have been much more impressive ever since, including a 41-0 romp over Little Falls.


5.   Notre Dame (3-1): Class D East leaders have won three straight, but the Jugglers had to come from behind to edge winless Little Falls 21-20 last week.
