Maine-Endwell Goes for the Record
The Maine-Endwell Spartans will try to set a record for the longest unbeaten streak in New York State high school football history when they host the Johnson City Wildcats at Spartan Stadium at 7:00 (6:50 on News Radio 1290 WNBF). The Spartans have won 55 consecutive games. Massena High from Section 10 went 54-0-1 in a streak that ended in 1957.
The 4-0 Spartans meet another Class A opponent and long-time rival Johnson City who comes in with a 2-2 record..Also on the line is the Spar-Cat Trophy, given to the winner of each year's football game between the two schools.
Maine-Endwell has relied more on their running game than passing game mainly because they have been so dominant in the first four games of the season, outscoring the opposition 172-34. The Wildcats have outscored their opponents 85-55. They have a powerful running game featuring Dominic Nadz and Shafeeq Hosea. In M-E's last outing they shutout Vestal 28-0 while Johnson City rolled by West Genesee 43-7.
