Another State trip for Green Machine!

by tobin on April 1st, 2014

 The Green Machine took home 3rd Place last weekend with a 4-1 record advancing to the NYWA State tournament.  After an opening round rout of Stewartville, the Green Machine knocked off the 4th seed Byron Bears, 42-30, in a total team effort.  The Green Machine then fell to perennial power Kasson-Mantorville, owner of the past 8 regional titles and 5 state titles.  Green Machine bounced back with a rout over Chatfield followed by another 42-30 win over Byron.  Great job and good luck at State this coming weekend!
