ENDICOTT, N.Y. - A jam-packed night of football Friday across the area.
We begin with the premier match-up of the evening, Vestal playing host to Union-Endicott.
The Golden Bears were fired up for this one.
And much like last week with U-E, you know it's a big game when you break out the alternate jerseys.
This week, Vestal going with the black jerseys with pink ribbons on the sleeves in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
First quarter, and this play fake is so good by Matthew Carr, he even got me to bite! He scampers into the endzone to put Vestal up 7-0.
After that, the Tigers would pounce.
Devon Hogan continuing to impress week after week.
A beautiful pass and an even better catch by Brendan Cornell, game tied at 7.
Later on, Hogan at it again.
Slings this over the middle and it's brought in by Dylan Whitney, U-E goes up 14-7.
Few minutes to go before the half, Hogan with the pass, and Darrius Billingsley, that's not even fair.
What a catch! Third TD of the half for Hogan, 21-7 Tigers.
But, the second half making me wish I stayed.
Vestal battles back to tie the game at 21, then the Golden Bears drill a 32-yard field goal as time expired, and the Golden Bears complete the comeback and upset Union-Endicott, 24-21.
And the Vestal Den must've been rocking!
Next, we head over to Alumni Stadium where the Patriots of Binghamton High welcomed in the Johnson City Wildcats.
Second half action. Patriots already with a 20-6 lead here when Mose Hill fights his way into the end zone, touchdown Binghamton, and with the extra point, a 29-6 lead.
Just when J.C. looked like they were down and out, quarterback Gavin McKercher finds Keith Harris who turns on the jets and takes this one 76 yards for the Wildcats touchdown, that brings it to a 29-12 game.
But too much Binghamton from there.
After a Binghamton receiver was ejected for targeting, Devin Tyler hopped in, and made an immediate impact.
He makes a tremendous catch on the throw from Dan Crowley, and would help set up this.
Crowley looking right, throws back over the middle and finds Devon Herman for a Patriots touchdown.
That would put this one away as Binghamton goes on to win 43-12.
A lot of scoring in Class AA, Elmira beats Ithaca 61-6, and Corning runs over Horseheads 37-14.
#2 Chenango Forks stays undefeated with a 49-7 blowout win at #24 Norwich in Class B.
Owego took care of Waverly at home, 34-13.
In Class C, #1 Newark Valley survives a scare from Oneonta, winning that one 28-21 to stay perfect.
However, #14 Lansing is upset by Harpursville/Afton 26-22.
A barn burner between Whitney Point and Watkins Glen/Odessa, W.P. taking that one by a final of 68-56!
A battle of two ranked teams in Class D, #14 Tioga takes care of business at home against #18 Notre Dame, 36-16.
