The Binghamton Press, for the first time since Eisenhower was president, did not have even a single paragraph on Saturday night's game in the Sunday paper. Not the stats, not even the score. Looks like they forgot about us. The stats WERE in the paper Monday morning and are below.  Also below are articles with a little CF talk from two Tuesday's paper's "5th Quarter" feature, one from October 8th and the other from the 15th..

CF challenge: Try to avoid complacency

Press & Sun-Bulletin

Coming off a once-beaten season in which it finished as state runner-up in Class B, Chenango Forks coaches stressed since Day 1 of preseason camp the importance of continual improvement each day in practice.  

The mission for the Blue Devils has been to challenge themselves to get better, regardless of the previous week's result or who the upcoming opponent may be.

So far, so good.

The Blue Devils are off to a 5-0 start, the most recent success coming in the form of a 43-14 rout of Waverly.

"We thought had a real good week of practice, working on the basics," Forks coach Kelsey Green said. "I think it benefited us a little bit.

"What we keep talking about is trying to progress, and we think every week we're finding something that's a little bit better. It seems like a little something every week for the offense, they're getting a little sharper."

On Saturday, the Blue Devils added a third player to their mix behind center.

"We went with a three-quarterback rotation right off the bat to get the sophomore (Tim Batty) in there," Green said, mixing Batty in with Matt Juriga and Chris Spencer. "Tim hadn't thrown a pass until (Saturday). We think -- no, we know -- he's going to be a good one."

Drew Batty, Tim's brother who sustained a fractured fibula in Week 2, is scheduled to have the cast removed from his leg on Oct. 15.

"He, of course, thinks he'll be practicing on the 16th," Green said. "He's very optimistic that he'll get a game under his belt."

Batty started for the Blue Devils at running back and cornerback, and was an All-Metro defensive selection last year. 

From the Binghamton Press's "5th Quarter" feature - Tuesday October 15th - (by Kevin Stevens):


A 49-0 rout of Seton Catholic Central on Saturday night gave Chenango Forks (6-0) its second shutout and made it five games in six weeks that the Blue Devils have limited an opponent to seven or fewer points.

Forks limited the Saints to 40 yards of offense, and now has surrendered an average of just 129.3 per game.

"I liked our intensity, the way we came out after halftime," Forks coach Kelsey Green said. "Seton came out and played hard, they impressed us. We had a couple of big plays late, but other than those, they made us work to move the ball down the field."

Ahead for the Blue Devils figures to be their toughest assignment to date, a home game against unbeaten Elmira Notre Dame.
