In and out

Sullivan West players exult in the victory as the moment takes its emotional toll on a prone Liberty player who holds his head in disbelief at the outcome.

“We lost two games by a single point and we’re out,” said Liberty coach John Wilhelm, who took ownership for the gamble on the conversion. “It’s on me,” he said. “They were running the ball well at times tonight and we weren’t. I felt we couldn’t go score-for-score with them and that this was our best chance.”

Eldred, like Liberty, now finds itself outside looking in, after losing to Livingston Manor and falling to Chester 28-12 this past weekend. LMR and Chester will stage a rematch of last year’s Class D championship game to be played Dietz Stadium on November 4. Chester beat LMR 34-10 in 2010. Tri-Valley (1-5, 0-1 Class C) must beat Fallsburg and Millbrook to qualify for the playoffs to face O’Neill, who beat them 29-15 in a non-league tilt this past weekend.
