Zach Bacon rushed for 152 yards and a touchdown while Richie Harkenrider passed for two scores as Hornell won a Class C State Semifinal 20-7 over Chenango Forks at Sahlen's Stadium Saturday afternoon.

It was Hornell's 51st consecutive win.

The Red Raiders jumped on the board first with a 74 yard hookup from Harkenrider to Brendan Buisch in the first quarter. Harkenrider hit Julian Reinhart with a 22 yard score early in the 2nd quarter to make it 12-0.

Forks pulled within 12-7 just before halftime and had a chance to take the lead early in the third, but Hornell stopped Chenango on 4th and one. The Raiders then added to the lead with a Bacon three yard TD. Forks never threatened again.

Hornell will face Hoosick Falls for the Class C Championship next Saturday in the Carrier Dome. Kickoff will be at Noon.
