Football playoffs: Part II semifinals set

Win and move on, lose and let your juniors get ready for next season, that is the standard operating procedure for Section II football after several seasons were basically concluded Friday night.

In Saratoga County it could be a collision course or a publisher's dream as Saratoga and Ballston Spa could face off in the Class AA Section II finale if they survive the next round.

Saratoga Springs hosts a tough Schenectady team that enacted revenge against Shenendehowa Friday night, 33-13. Ballston Spa will once again see Guilderland who they finished up the regular season against, but the Dutchmen may have put the fear into the Scotties after upending LaSalle on Friday night.

In another Saratogian dream sequence, Saratoga Catholic not only won its first playoff game in more than 20 years, they get to travel and face another locally covered school, Greenwich, Friday night in another Class D late-season rematch.

Burnt Hills could be tested when it faces Niskayuna at home Friday night while the opposite side of the bracket is a battle as Gloversville faces Troy on Saturday.
