Through two weeks of play in Section II football, here’s our look at the top five teams in each classification.
Troy (No. 1, 2-0) gets this spot until someone else does something about it. While both Saratoga (No. 2, 2-0) and Shaker (No. 3, 2-0) kept winning in Week 2, the Blue Streaks were more impressive in downing their top rival. Of course, that was Shenendehowa (No. 4, 1-1), which finishes its regular season with home games in four of its last five.

South Glens Falls (No. 4, 2-0), off to a surprising start, gets a major chance to prove it’s for real when it heads to Averill Park (No. 5, 2-0) for this week’s game.

The Indians might not see a major challenge until their Week 6 trip to Schuylerville (No. 2, 2-0) for a matchup of two teams likely to be undefeated at that point. The record isn’t pretty, but Schalmont (No. 3, 0-2) should recover as its…
