Burnt Hills’ Matt Shell allowed to coach in regional matchup

Sports

BURNT HILLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A double sideline penalty in Burnt Hills’ Super Bowl win over Queensbury put head coach Matt Shell’s status for their regional matchup with Somers in jeopardy. But after further review, Shell will be on the sideline Friday night.

New York State Football Chairman and Ravena head coach Gary Vanderzee confirmed the news Wednesday. The rule states that if a double sideline penalty is assessed to a team, and the guilty party cannot be identified, the head coach is ejected and serves the one-game suspension. But because they were able to identify one of the Spartans assistant coaches as the guilty party, he will serve the suspension, allowing Shell to coach Friday night against the Tuskers.

The Spartans will take on Somers at Mahopac High School on Friday at 6 p.m.
