ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – The time is now.

Elmira football and Corning will play for the coveted Section IV Class AA title on Friday night. Opening kickoff is set for 7 pm between two rival teams who are looking to take the next step to states.

In a rematch of a closely contested game just a few weeks ago in the regular season, a game which saw Corning outlast Elmira 8-0, Friday night’s game proves to be just as exciting. But this time, the winner will take the championship and advance to states. The loser, though, stays home.
