Homer Football on to semis, 1 win away from Carrier Dome



Homer Football is on to the second round of playoffs — and one step closer to a Section III Class B title.

Coach Gary Podsiedlik’s Trojans hosted Central Valley Academy at Butts Field on Friday (Oct. 29), rolling to a 30-13 victory behind a stellar performance from Junior RB Sam Sorenson.

He scored all four touchdowns for Homer, rushing for 193 yards on 23 carries. Sorenson also had 8 tackles, matching Tyler Riehman for the team-high in the game. Senior David Morse added 82 yards on 13 carries.

The win continues an undefeated season for Homer (7-0).

Next up: Another home contest against Vernon-Verona Sherill in the Class B quarterfinal.

Kickoff is set for 7 pm this Friday (November 5), broadcasting live once again on WXHC.

If the Trojans are victorious, they would face the winner of another quarterfinal matchup Friday between New Hartford (7-0) and Institute of Technology Central (5-3).

Championship games will be Saturday, November 13 at the Carrier Dome, with Class B starting at 3 pm.
