Thoughts, news and notes from the sports staff of The Saratogian newspaper, located in historic Saratoga Springs, New York. The gang in the corner office on Lake Avenue give you the post-game wrap-ups, news and notes from the games we cover and opinions about the sports we read about every day.

Evan Nusbaum missed a 30-yard field goal attempt as time expired to send the teams to the locker room with Sweet Home leading 19-0.

The Spartans have been in nearly this position before. In the 2008 title game, Sweet Home took a 21-7 lead after the first quarter and 28-14 at halftime before the Panthers' second-half rally fell short, 35-28.

Sweet Home is starting the second half with the ball, and another quick score could be devastating. Burnt Hills will have to stop then and then respond quickly.

A student wearing a Spartans helmet (the Roman kind, not the football kind) is attempting to rally Burnt Hills fans in the stands. "We just drove three and a half hours," he shouted. "Every player better hear you when they come back on this field!"
