Purple Tigers, J-D seek initial win
Both coaches used pretty much the same terms in describing Thursday night’s Section 3 Class A American Division football game between visiting Jamesville-DeWitt and Cortland High.
“They’re a lot like us,” said Purple Tigers coach Dave Darrow, both teams 0-4 overall (CHS at 0-2 in the league) heading into the 7 p.m. contest that will be televised by Time Warner from Moiseichik Field. “They’ve struggled a little bit. I think it will be a good game; I don’t think they’re better than us.”
“Dave and I have always had competitive games over the years, and I would expect the same on Thursday,” said Red Rams coach Eric Ormond, whose team lost its only league contest so far 41-0 to ES-M two weeks ago, the Spartans then walloping CHS 40-12 last Friday night in their next game.
