High schools: Spartans secure spot in Class A title game

Brett Rod­riguez ran for three touchdowns, and Mitch Crispin broke up a late two-point pass attempt

KINGSTON — Brett Rod­riguez ran for three touchdowns, and Mitch Crispin broke up a late two-point pass attempt to help Queensbury get past Cornwall, 36-27, in a state Class A semifinal football game Friday night at Dietz Stadium.

Moiset Santos scored on a three-yard run for Cornwall with 3:15 left, and Crispin defended a follow-up pass to keep the Spartans ahead, 28-27. Kody Bruno recovered an onside kick moments later, and raced 46 yards for an insurance touchdown.

Rodriguez went 59 yards for one of his touchdowns and added a pair of two-point runs for the state’s No. 1-ranked team.

Queensbury (12-0) will take on Williamsville North (Section VI, 9-3) in Friday’s state title game at 3 at the Syracuse Carrier Dome. Williamsville North defeated Union-Endicott (Section IV, 8-4) in the other state semifinal, 27-14.

Queensbury reached state championship contests in 1997 and 1998, and lost both times.

Cornwall (Section IX, 10-2) had lost to Burnt Hills in 2009, 2011 and 2012 state semifinal games. Cornwall’s star quarterback, Mike White, had a pair of first-half touchdown passes before leaving the game with an elbow injury.
