LEROY - The Oatkan Knights moved to 4-0 on the season with a sound victory over the visiting Bath-Haverling Rams 42-12 at Hartwood Park. The two teams last met in 2009 when the Rams put a 35-0 shellacking on the Knights at Hartwood with freshman QB Dan Leonard at the helm for the visitors. Now in his senior season, Leonard once again led a rugged Bath team into town. The 2012 Knights exacted revenge for that ’09 shutout loss as the Rams’ running attack was held to just 24 net yards on 24 carries, while the rifle-armed Leonard was held in check, as he connected on just 9 passes in 25 attempts.

As in the Avon contest a week prior, the Knights jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Soph QB Mike McMullen lofted a perfect TD strike to fellow soph Ryan McQuilllen with just under four minutes left in the first quarter to score from 48 yards out. The big-play McQuillen is averaging 32 yards per catch on the season! Dylan Johnson tacked on the PAT kick, the first of six by him for the evening. Johnson is a perfect 15-for-15 on PAT kicks for the year.

Less than 2 minutes later, the Rams, forced deep in their territory by a superb kickoff by Jon Pierce, coughed up the ball on the 4-yard line that was scooped up by defensive stalwart Marcus Mistersaro for another LeRoy TD to push the score to 14-0 Knights.

Bath QB Leonard brought the Rams back early in the second quarter with his arm and running ability. Leonard plunged over the goal line from five yards out to cut the LeRoy lead to 14-6 at the 8:57 mark of the quarter.

The state-ranked Knights (5th in NY Class C poll) answered the call to push the lead back to two TDs as the offense put together a masterful drive, culminating with junior RB Peter Privitera’s seventh TD of the season via a 3-yard run. Privitera has rushed for 451 yards through four games, averaging 113 yards per contest. The score at the half read Knights 21, Rams 6.

The Knights scored at the 8:27 mark of the third quarter after they halted a Bath drive early with Jon Pierce’s interception of a tipped Leonard pass (Jon has 3 INTs on the year). LeRoy senior fullback Dylan Johnson plunged over the goal line for the 1-yard TD to push the lead to 28-6 Knights.

Leonard rebounded nicely with just under 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter as he hooked up with teammate Austin Vasseur on a 46-yard pass through the LeRoy defense to make in 28-12 Knights.

The potent Knights offense added two scores in the fourth quarter. Senior Marcus Mistersaro powered past the Rams for a 30-yard run down the sidelines with just over eight minutes to play. The multi-threat Mistersaro is averaging just under 11 yards per carry on the season (18 total carries). Pierce, who is averaging an astounding 12 yards per carry (17 total carries), tacked on the final TD of the evening as he used his speed to score from 55 yards out to make the final tally 42-12 Knights.

The Knights outrushed the Rams 290-24 in the game, as they registered 347 yards of offense to the Rams’ 164. McQuillen led the LeRoy defense with 8 tackles total, while Johnson and Tommy Kelso had 7 and 6 stops respectively. McQuillen leads the Knights with 6.5 tackles for lost yardage by the opponent. Offensive coordinator Brian Herdlein’s offense, guided by the composed, strong play of QB Mike McMullen, has outscored the opposition 193-46 on the season. The top tacklers thus far are Johnson-24, Kelso-23, McQuillen-19, Privitera and Mistersaro-14 each, Chandler Winling-13, Zack Fitzsimmons-11, and Steve Cappotelli-10. Brandon VanGrol and Fitzsimmons have been monsters in the middle on the D line, as opponents look to run away from the two, only to find excellent D ends and LBs waiting for them with swarming tackles.

Up next is an away date with the high-scoring and talented Perry Yellowjackets on their fast turf field. Perry is state-ranked in Class D and has many outstanding athletes that have led this rising program to a 3-1 start in 2012. They are led by the strong arm of elusive QB Cory Dillon who just last week registered 346 yards passing by HALFTIME in Perry’s 50-30 win over Bishop Kearney.
