Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton) They have gone from being the hunter, to be being the hunted. In just one season they've gone from David to now, Goliath.We take a look at renewed expectations of this season's Maine Endwell football team under the action sports spotlight
Last year at this time, the Spartans were preparing for the state semi-finals and nobody outside their locker room thought they had a chance to win against Rochester Aquinas.
Turns out they had better than a chance.
Now after a state title, a drop in class and another undefeated season later, the Spartans find themselves back in the state semifinals against Rochester.
Only this time around, nobody expects them to lose.
"This year, the expectations are pretty high and they have been since the beginning of the year and I think we've dealt with that very well throughout the year and hopefully we can keep it up in this game," says quarterback Kyle Gallagher.
"We're going to definitely try to establish the running game, hopefully that will happen inside and out and then of course, we'll throw some passes and I think we can do both. They're definitely a great team, they're 11-0 for a reason," says head coach Matt Gallagher.
The Spartans will take on Alden on Saturday at 3:00 pm in Rochester.
The winner of that game will head to the championship game at the Carrier Dome.
