The Pleasantville High School varsity football team is heading to Syracuse, seeking its first state championship on Sunday, Nov. 26.

The Panthers face Chenango Forks of Binghamton in the Section B title game, which begins at noon at Syracuse University's Carrier Dome. Snow is already sticking in the Salt City, but green-and-white clad visitors will enjoy the heated climes at Carrier Dome.

Pleasantville Coach Tony Beccera's varsity football squad defeated Glens Falls, 20-7, in Middletown in a semifinal playoff thriller to advance to the state championship game. Panther quarterback Jack Howe, a PHS junior shined in Saturday's game as did Nick Salzarulo on defense, with 13 tackles and one sack.
