Class D powerhouse crushes Blue Devils, 61-6
The undefeated Cambridge football team crushed Haldane, 61-6, on Nov. 18 in the Class D state semifinals at Kingston.
Cambridge (12-0) won each of its games this season by at least 27 points and scored at least 50 points in 9 of its 12 contests, including this one. The Indians led 40-0 halfway through the second quarter and 47-6 at halftime after Haldane scored on a 66-yard pass from Brandon Twoguns to Matt Champlin.
“We were definitely overmatched,” Twoguns told the Journal News. “They were good.”
Helen Mooney, Cambridge’s kicker, broke the state record during the game for most points scored by a female football player; she now has 60 after kicking seven extra points. Cambridge will play Maple Grove in its fifth state championship game and first since 2005.
