Heading to Semi-Finals

SCHUYLERVILLE — After defeating Potsdam 28-8 in the playoffs, the Black Horses are heading to the Class B state semifinal game Saturday, November 23, 2019 when they take on Port Jervis. 

“I really felt like, the guys to this stage have done a phenomenal job of adjusting week to week,” said head Coach John Bowen. “At this point, every game is a testing ground as to how much you can absorb and how well you can do as far as being flexible within what you do, and not deviating too far and still making quality adjustments to be able to counter the opponent.”

At the start of the season head Coach John Bowen had a mentality of only focusing on the very next game ahead which has proven to be a successful mind set with the success the team has shown this past season. 

The Black Horses have had a 11-1-0 overall season, and plan to bring all of what they have practiced to this Saturday’s game. 

“They (Port Jervis) are very similar in schemes to Holy Trinity and Glens Falls. We’re just putting ourselves in a position right now to prepare adequately enough for what they’re gonna present to us. The ball is gonna be in the air a lot and we’ve gotta be prepared to handle that and deal with that.”

The game will take place at 3 p.m. at Middletown High School.  Tickets are on sale at
