CBA 20 - GHS 7

The Christian Brothers Academy football team entered Friday’s Section II Class AA semifinal contest at Guilderland having dropped two contests in nine outings. In tough defeats, the Brothers were outplayed and made too many mistakes to prevail. This time around, CBA was the better team throughout.

Despite a wobble early in the final period, the Brothers used a punishing ground game to produce touchdown runs from Brenden Simek and Donald Jones in posting a 20-7 victory over Guilderland.

The loss denied the Dutchmen (6-3) from reaching a third straight championship contest. Guilderland lost in the 2019 Super Bowl against Shenendehowa and captured the Fall Season II during the spring with a 22-21 triumph over Shaker.

CBA (8-2) nearly produced as many rushing attempts as yards gained by Guilderland. The Brothers’ defense limited the Dutchmen to 54 yards overall, including 14 yards passing on 19 attempts. Guilderland senior quarterback Ty Santabarbara never was able to set his feet on a single throw.

"I thought we had a really good game plan coming in knowing what they were going to do. It was going to take great effort and mental focus tonight," CBA coach Bobby Burns said. "I don't know how many yards they had, but it could not have been a lot."

"Listen, our defense played so well together," CBA nose guard Jason Rogers said. "We're a team. At the end of the day, that's all that matters. If you play as a team, you can beat anybody."

“We knew we needed to be more consistent with the ball on offense so they couldn’t get in the position to be able to run the ball on us,” Guilderland coach Dan Penna said. “We didn’t do enough.”

Third-seeded CBA will take on fourth-seeded Shenendehowa (7-2), who handed Shaker its first defeat 17-14 in the other semifinal.

"I think it is great. We played a great game against them last week," Burns said. "Hopefully, we can prepare for them the same way we did this week."
