LE ROY - Tom Kelso had himself a very productive night in just two quarters of action.
Kelso gained 91 yards on 12 carries and scored four touchdowns in powering top-seeded Le Roy to a 54-8 romp over No. 8 Wayland-Cohocton in the Class C quarterfinals of the Section 5 Football Playoffs Friday evening.
Le Roy didn't play its first-team offense in the second half, but didn't
need to as they led 42-0 at half-time.
Nick Egeling got Le Roy going with a 15-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, then Kelso ran 27 yards later in the quarter for his first TD of the night, making it 13-0.
In the second quarter, Kelso scored on runs of 5, 1 and 6 yards in building the Oatkan Knights' lead to 34-0.
Mike McMullen capped off the first-half onslaught by hitting Jake Henry for a 3-yard touchdown pass. Kelso added the two-point conversion run.
Anthony Natrigo scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for Le Roy before the Eagles broke the Le Roy shutout in the fourth when Zach Barnard dashed 34 yards for the touchdown.
Nate Flint finished the scoring for Le Roy with a 5-yard run later in the fourth quarter. Flint rushed 12 times for 54 yards, while Natrigo added 65 yards on 13 totes. McMullen went 8-of-13 in the air for 92 yards.
Defensively, Reid Kacur had seven tackles and blocked a punt, while Kelso added six tackles. Mike Shepard recovered a fumble, with Ryan McQuillen intercepting a pass.
The Oatkan Knights (8-0) play fourth-seeded Dansville (5-3) in the semifinals.
