RAVENA-COEYMANS-SELKIRK — The Indians have racked up another two wins in the last two weeks, and now stand at second place in Section 2B.
With a 5-2 record on the season overall and a 5-1 in-league record, the team is second only to unbeaten Glens Falls.
The Indians have been on the road for the past four games and on Saturday shut out the Cohoes Tigers 49-0.
The team scored in every quarter of the game, with two touchdowns in each of the first, second and third quarters, and one in the fourth.
Senior Aidan Lochner led the team Saturday with two rushing touchdowns. Seniors Franky Broadhurst and Garrett Poland each put one rushing play into the endzone, senior Robert Dorrance and junior Jack McFerran both scored a touchdown on a passing play.
Broadhurst scored a touchdown on a 77-yard kick-off return.

The offense has been on fire the past couple of games. In the previous game on Oct. 8, the Indians played an away contest against Hudson Falls, defeating the winless Tigers by a score of 55-28.
The Indians put points on the board in every quarter — 20 in the first, 14 in the second, 7 in the third and another 14 in the fourth. They kept the Tigers scoreless in the first half, but then gave up 14 points in each of the third and fourth quarters.
