Perfect English; Indians Remain In The Hunt

CAMBRIDGE - Ethan English was 9-for-9 as he threw for 230 yards and four touchdowns as the Cambridge Indians won their divisional game against the Warrensburg Burghers 49-14.

The win keeps the Cambridge Indians in the hunt for the Class D divisional title.

Caleb Rowland was the recipient of two of English's touchdown tosses, with Jarred Sausville and Chris Warnke being the other two.  
Overall, it was an offense that wasn't seen in the Indians game last week when they fell against Whitehall 21-19 in a game where they turned the ball over six times.

Turnovers were not a concern this time for the Cambridge Indians

The Indians went 7-for-7 on their first 7 drives, converting their offensive opportunities for points.  After receiving the kick to begin the game, Ethan English aired his first pass out to Caleb Rowland for the score on the first play from scrimmage to give the Indians the 7-0 lead.

Warrensburg was able to answer back, scoring on a run up the middle on Szabo's carry, set up by a 4th down play where the Burghers double-handed off and then tossed back to Jake Nemec for the first down conversion.  The two point conversion was no good. 

Cambridge began to pull away thanks to Ethan English and Caleb Rowland to lead 35-6 at the half, and tacked on two more scores in the second half.

The only time Cambridge was unable to convert a drive into points was on their final drive, as the backups fumbled the ball in the fourth quarter.

The Indians close out the regular season by hosting the Hoosic Valley Indians in a game that will not matter for playoff seeding, but will be a good test heading into the postseason.  The Hoosic Valley Indians bounced back from their first loss of the season by handing Whitehall their first loss of the season on Saturday, coming back from a 20-0 deficit after the first quarter to win 41-26.

The Cambridge Indians still have a chance at the #1 seed, as a Rensselaer win next week at Whitehall will result in a three-way tie for first place.  In that case, quarter points will settle who gets the #1 seed for the playoffs, which begin November 1st at Schuylerville.
