Averill Park Sports By Isaac Joseph
AVERILL PARK – Averill Park had another successful week of competition as football and volleyball seasons near an end.
The football team defeated Amsterdam in a 41-40 thriller on 4/9. Ben Ferlito‘s kickoff return for a touchdown put the Warriors up 7 with 1:14 remaining in the fourth quarter. Amsterdam brought it to a one point game with a touchdown in the final seconds, but the Averill Park defense came up with a huge stop on the two point conversion to secure the Warriors third win of the season. Senior Dan McShane had four touchdowns to lead AP to victory. The football team will take on Lasalle on 4/16
The girls volleyball team fell 21-25, 18-25, 26-28 to Colonie on 4/7. The girls bounced back on 4/9 with a 25-19, 23-25, 25-21, 25-23 win over Ballston Spa. The volleyball team will face Saratoga in their next game on 4/15.
I will be back next week to report on AP scores and highlights. Go Warriors!
