Shen advances 28-14 over Colonie

Here is a combined list of live updates from Saturday's Shenendehowa vs. Colonie Section II Class AA quarterfinal game that I uploaded via my Blackberry on the sidelines...

Shen advances 28-14 over Colonie
Colonie attempted to get back into the game, passing successfully twice for 31-yard gains but fumbled the ball on the next play, recovered by Shenendehowa's Alex Juers with 1:23 left in the game.
Shen awaits the winner of the CBA/LaSallle contest Sunday afternoon.

Shen responds, up 28-14 late
A big run by Suhayb Banks after forcing Colonie to turn the ball over on downs set up Shen's fourth score and a 28-14 lead with under two minutes to go.
Banks opened with a 23-yard run and was followed by a 15-yard jaunt by Jason Bedard to bring the ball to midfield.
Five plays later, Bedard dove at the left pylon for the score and a 28-14 lead with 1:53 left.

Not over yet!
Colonie held Shenendehowa on a goal line stand and then returned with an 80-yard drive that stalled on the Plainsmen 22-yard line.
Shen regains the ball with 5:25 left and still ahead, 21-14.

Colonie cuts into lead, 21-14
Shen couldn't put together a sustained opening drive to open the second half, but Colonie could.
The Garnet Raiders drove 68 yards on 13 plays, including four pass plays, scoring on Joe Poleto's 3-yard run over the middle, breaking the plane with second effort to cut the lead, 21-14.

Shen lucky or good? Up 21-7
Colonie was unable to have the same success in the air late in the second quarter, being forced to punt after only five plays.

The Garnet Raider punt would become costly.

Shenendehowa's Mike Daly took the high, long punt at his own 20-yard line and appeared to be pinned in. He ran left to right like a squirrel caught on Route 9 before he got the high sign from teammate Darryl Evans to go around his right side. Evans threw the block to free Daly to escape and finally turn upfield. The sophomore cut back into the middle of the field and scampered 80-yards for a touchdown, putting the Plainsmen up, 21-7.

Shen answers, 14-7 late 2nd
Known for three-yards and a cloud of dust, the Plainsmen showed off its breakaway speed immediately after giving up a touchdown to Colonie is the Section II Class AA quarterfinal.
Shen needed only four plays to go 71 yards including a 32-yard rip by D.J. Evans combined with two carries by Suhayb Banks for 34-yards.
Jason Bedard ran in from five yards out for the score.
Shen 14, Colonie 7

Shen, Colonie tied at 7
A kick off out of bounds after Shenendehowa scored proved costly. Colonie asked for a re-kick and Shen responded by drilling the ball into one of the front line players who fell on the ball.
Eight plays later, including three successful pass attempts, Colonie scored on Joe Poleto's two-yard plunge with 4:42 left.
Contest tied at 7-7.

Shen up 7-0 on Colonie in 2nd

A 13-yard punt return from midfield set up a Shenendehowa 33-yard scoring drive capped by senior D.J. Evans's 1-yard plunge over center Saturday night at Shenendehowa.
