Waverly Outlasts Chenango Forks in Section IV Title Game For First Championship Since 2015
The Waverly Wolverines are atop Section IV for the first time since 2015 as they hand Chenango Forks their first Sectional Chip loss since 1998 with a 28-14 final.
Lucas Bartlow and the Devils got the game started with a two-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. It didn't take long for the Wolverines to respond as Joey Tomasso and Jay Pipher hooked up for a 45-yard touchdown pass to tie it up. Still in the second quarter and Grady Stark took in a QB keeper to regain the lead for Forks.
Tomasso took one out of Stark's playbook and took a QB run in for six to tie the game at 14 apiece at half.
After a Forks' drive stalled early in the third quarter, Tomasso once again used his feet and scampered for 61 yards to make it 21-14 with plenty of time left.
Stop me if you've heard this before, Joey Tomasso takes a long run in for six, this time 45 yards to paydirt and the Wolverines led 28-14 midway through the third quarter.
Waverly held out Forks and snapped the Blue Devils' 18-game championship game-winning streak. The Wolverines will take on either Holland-Patent or General Brown of Section III at Cicero-North Syracuse on Saturday, November 19th at 12 pm.
