CHAMPIONSHIP - Saturday 3/1, 7:15PM at the Glens Falls Civic Center

Analysis: Lansingburgh's weapons might not be enough to withstand the offensive power of Scotia. The 1-2 punch of Joey Cremo and Alex Sausville has yielded the Tartans the #1 offense in Section 2, and with good reasons.

Amsterdam and Averill Park could be a very compelling match.  Amsterdam has the weight of their win over Troy, but also suffers from being from the conference that shined dimly during the Class AA tournament.

Queensbury needed to play a full 32 minute game in order to get past winless Bishop Gibbons in the outbracket, and need to get a full team effort if they are to have a shot at beating Gloversville.  Gloversville has two wins over Queensbury on their resume.

Mohonasen had to pull out a close one against South Glens Falls in the outbracket, a result that leads me to wonder what they have in store for the Flying Horses.  If you remember, I had pegged Mohonasen to make it to the Glens Falls Civic Center on the weight of some of their close games against Class AA Suburban teams, but the close game against the Bulldogs makes me concerned.
