Corning NY- You may call it an upset, but don't say it too loud around the Elmira football train. Cliche or not, the Express "stopped" in Corning Friday night enroute to it's anticipated goal, a chance to play for Section 4 Gold. After forty eight minutes of dominating every facet of the game, punched their own ticket for the Title game with a convincing 45-25 win over the Hawks. Kevin Snyder got things started with a 19 yard run and 2 point coversion six minutes into the game. Following a 25 yard field goal by Corning's JM Tokar, Snyder answered one minute later in the second quarter with his second TD and conversion to make it 16-3 Elmira. From that point it was all Express...a 90 yard interception by Rasean Brooks, a Josh Goetz pass to Jerry McPeak, his first of 2 scores, and a 41 yard sideline trek to paydirt. Elmira dominated on the ground with McPeak and Eric Williams gathering the most real estate. Corning did make an effort late in the game, trailing 45-9 with five minutes left as QB Connor Jacobs found Jordan Crusha and Trent Ray in the open for scores, but, by then, it was too late. Corning finishes the season 6-3 while Elmira improves 5-4 and will meet Binghamton, a 62-8 winner over Ithaca, Saturday November 3 for the AA Championship.
