Moshier: Whitesboro lost to state champ

Yes, it is official: Whitesboro High School’s football season ended with a loss to the Class A state champion.


Section VI (Buffalo area) powerhouse Sweet Home, the team that beat Whitesboro 36-13 in the semifinals of the Class A tournament, successfully defended its New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship Saturday with a 34-7 romp over previously-unbeaten Burnt Hills of Section II (Albany area) at the Carrier Dome.


Sweet Home senior quarterback Pat McMahon was 13 of 20 passing for 297 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown to Jahaan Williams and a 54-yard touchdown to D.J. Nettles. The 6-foot-3, 187-pound Nettles, who is being courted by Syracuse University, was named the game’s MVP. He had seven receptions for 142 yards and he also intercepted two passes.


Sweet Home’s second straight 13-0 season means the Panthers have won 26 consecutive games and 36 of their last 37. They also beat Burnt Hills in last year’s Class A state final.


Section VI teams actually swept all three state championship games played Saturday at the Carrier Dome. Southwestern extended the state’s longest active winning streak to 29 games, capping another 13-0 season with a 40-14 victory over Bronxville in the Class C final. In Class D, Randolph (12-1) rolled over Moriah 41-0.
