Town of Fenton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) It was perhaps the most exciting finish to a game in the history of the rivalry.

But in the end, the result was the same as it has been the last 19 years.

The Chenango Forks defense came up big one last time, stopping the Chenango Valley Warriors on a two point attempt in double overtime, preserving the 15 to 13 win.

The defense was a big part of that victory, stopping the Warriors offense on several 3rd and 1 or 4th and 1 opportunities.

"Our defense, especially, we always keep our composure and it happened in Greene as well. If they're driving on us, we never hang our heads. We just get right out there, get ready to stop them another time," says defensive tackle Jack Barnett.

"It is a game of inches. I know that's cliche, but it truly is. There's so many what ifs. You can look back either way and this could have turned out so many ways and depending on a little tweak here, a little thing there," says head coach Dave Hogan.

Chenango Forks has to get back to work preparing for a tough divisional game next Friday night at Sidney.

That game will be for the top spot in the division.
