SARATOGA SPRINGS – Shaker remained undefeated by outlasting Saratoga Springs 48-28 Friday, Sept. 14, in a Section 2 Class AA football game.
The Blue Bison (3-0) led 28-6 at one point before the Blue Streaks (2-1) rallied with a pair of touchdown drives in the third quarter that closed the gap to 28-20. Jovani Wiggs returned a kickoff 85 yards late in the third quarter to put Shaker ahead 35-20, but Saratoga quarterback Jack Williams found receiver Carter Steingraber for a 90-yard scoring strike early in the fourth quarter to make it a one-possession game again.
Shaker pulled away with two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Ravion Burt capped one series with a 10-yard scoring run, and Wiggs added a 48-yard touchdown run for insurance.
