Cazenovia defensive back Keaton Ackermann (9) breaks up a pass intended for Maine-Endwell's Adam Gallagher (5) during Saturday night's Class B regional final. Ackermann would get a fourth-quarter interception and make all four of his extra-point attempts in the Lakers' 35-34 defeat to the Spartans.

Caz nearly ends Spartans' 35-game win streak
A few inches here, or a few inches there, and perhaps the Cazenovia football team is celebrating one of the landmark victories in a glorious program's history. Instead, the Lakers had to cope with a bitter 35-34 defeat to two-time reigning state champion Maine-Endwell in Saturday night's Class B regional final at Union-Endicott's Ty Cobb Stadium and will wonder, for a long time, how things might have turned out were it not for those precious inches near the goal line.
