TIOGA CENTER, N.Y. (WENY) - It's championship week for New York State high school football. In Class D, Tioga will take the field with their eyes on back-to-back state titles.

The Tigers will take on Cambridge/Salem at the JMA Wireless Done in Syracuse on Saturday. Both teams enter this game undefeated at 13-0. Tioga beat Randolph by a touchdown in last week's state semifinals, while Cambridge/Salem is coming off a 47-22 win over Moriah.

Both teams have high-powered offenses. Tioga is averaging over 45 points per game while Cambridge/Salem is averaging over 36. Defensively, Tioga is giving up over 12 points per game, and Cambridge/Salem's defense has been stellar this year, allowing just under 7 points per game.

The Tigers are eager to take the field with hopes to bring home another state title, but they know the challenges Cambridge/Salem presents on Saturday.

"They have a really stout defense and they haven't given up a whole lot of points throughout the year and they run no-huddle on offense so that brings a couple of things you really have to stress in practice in order to get ready for that sort of thing so we know they're a good team," said Head Coach, Nick Aiello. "Their coaching staff has been in quite a few state finals, and I know they're going to be ready when they show up."

"Both teams are going to play with a lot of emotion, both teams want to go home winners and so it comes down to staying composed, staying in the moment, and taking it all in" he added.

"I think it will be big if we give up little penalties and just play our game on offense and defense and give up little turnovers," said junior running back and linebacker, Ousmane Duncanson."

"We're all excited but we can't let it get to us. We have to have a good week of practice and coach lets us know that" said junior wide receiver and cornerback, Evan Sickler. "It would definitely mean the world. That's what this whole program is all about. All of the work we put in is for this moment so it would just be nice to execute and take home another one."

Kickoff for Saturday's Class D State Championship game is set for 12:00 PM.
