Connor Strand and Dean Hartl each ran for a pair of first-half touchdowns, and the Shaker defense recorded its fourth shutout in five games as the undefeated Blue Bison rolled past Bethlehem 40-0 in a Class AA Liberty Division semifinal football game Friday night.

Shaker’s win sets up a semifinal against CBA, which automatically advanced to the division championship when Colonie was unable to play due to a COVID-19 pause.

CBA played a non-classification game against Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, with the Class A Grasso Division-leading Spartans remaining undefeated with a 28-20 win.

Dan McShane ran for two touchdowns, and Averill Park held off a late charge from La Salle Institute to notch a 20-13 Class A Capital Division win.

Ashton Sullivan and Brody Sullivan each ran for two touchdowns, leading Corinth/Fort Edward to a 32-6 Class C win over Mechanicville. Luciano D’Ambro scored Mechanicville’s lone touchdown on a 32-yard run in the second quarter.

In a Class B Reinfurt Division contest, Hudson’s Isaiah Maines ran for a touchdown, caught a touchdown pass and threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Kasey Moore in the Bluehawks’ 35-13 win over Lansingburgh. Moore had a pair of touchdown receptions and Caleb Romano threw two touchdown passes for Hudson.

Eric Mattick ran for a pair of short touchdowns, Jason Reif had a touchdown pass and a touchdown run and Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk used a second-half surge to notch a 29-20 non-classification win over Scotia-Glenville. Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk outscored Scotia-Glenville 23-6 in the second half. In the loss, Scotia-Glenville quarterback Jack Armstrong completed 13 of 17 passes for 202 yards and three touchdowns — two to Decilius Blankenship, one to Antonio Cianfrani.
