Ballston Spa up 14-7 at half
Ballston Spa put up two touchdowns on the road at Troy High Saturday afternoon before the Flying Horses answered in the closing minute of the first half.

Scottie senior back Steve Duncan scored both times for Ballston Spa.

He turned the left corner on the Troy defense for a 21-yard score with 4:29 left in the first quarter.

Troy responded with a strong drive that was negated on a fumble, recovered by Ballston Spa's Cameron Staulters on the 20-yard line.

The Scotties engineered a 13-play 80-yard drive capped by Duncan's one-yard plunge from the goal line three minutes into the second half.

Troy found its way on the next drive, seeing Elijah Rush have success on the left side of the ball, running seven times for 33 yards of a 58-play scoring drive. He would end the Flying Horses scoring drought with a four-yard run over the left side.

Troy's Rush has 61 yards on 12 carries and a score at the half.
