Bears pound Camden, advance to Class B final

Chittenango in first football title game since 1999

The Blue Devils managed the only points of the third quarter, as Colby Stratton hit Kal Kirch on a five-yard scoring pass. Down 28-14, Camden got the ball back and moved deep into Bears territory, only to have Phelps intercept a Stratton pass to kill the threat.

Two more times in the fourth quarter, Chittenango churned away with its multifaceted running attack to set up short TD runs - one yard by Josh Cretaro, four yards by Gilona.

That last score, with 3:37 left, capped a night where Gilona had 116 yards on 16 carries, just behind Zimmer, who pounded out 132 yards on 14 carries.

Phelps, aside from his two interceptions (just as he had in the first-round win over South Jefferson), managed 66 yards on just six carries and completed four of five passes for 57 yards. Also on the defensive side, Aaron Jones added 11 tackles and Connor Mills recorded a sack.
