Game recap by Barney Mase - LeRoy Football Team Statistician

LEROY - LeRoy's first home game of the 2015 season turned out to be a successful encounter as they defeated the Dansville Mustangs 28-0. Last year the Knights knocked off the Mustangs 54-0 in the Class C semifinals. Today's game was much closer as neither team scored in the first half at rain drenched Hartwood Park.

Dansville had the ball first and picked up a first down, but on 2nd-and-14 LR's Reed Kacur dropped the Mustang running back in the backfield for an 8-yard loss (Reed had 3 tackles on the day for losses). Two plays later, Dansville punts the ball away.

LeRoy picks up two first downs (Egeling-8, Flint-2, Laurie-11), but the drive stalls on an incompletion on 3rd-and-9 at the Mustang 46. Dave Privatera's punt pins the visitors back at their own 16 yard line.

Dansville picks up three first downs to the Knights' 49, but on 1st-and 10, Benny Piazza drops the runner for a 1-yard loss, Luke Hogle stops rugged back Alex West for no gain, and an incompletion on third down leads to another Mustang punt.

LeRoy goes 3-and-out and matches Dansville with it's own punt.

In the second quarter, Dansville has excellent field position at the LeRoy 44. Dansville runs Anthony Sackett on two successive downs for only 2 yards. On third down, Luke Hogle nails Sackett for a 3-yard loss (Luke had 2 tackles for losses on the day) forcing another Mustang punt, pinning the Knights at their own 11.

This LR drive showed promise as Flint-6, Egeling-11(FD), Egeling-2, Flint-5, Laurie-5(FD), defensive offsides (1st and 5 from the LR 45), Flint-4, incomplete pass, West stops Flint for 2-yard loss, leaving a 4th-and-3 at the LeRoy 47. Josh just misses receiver Jason Doemling over the middle, which turns the ball over on downs.

Dansville again starts on Knights' side of the field, but the defense comes up big again. After picking up 10 yards on a pass completion and 4 on a run play, Nick Shepard comes up big, stopping Alex West for no gain and a 1-yard loss, leaving a 4th-and-7 for the visitors. An incomplete pass gives the ball back to the hometown Knights.

LeRoy again goes 3-and-out and punts for the third time in the young game.

Dansville, starting from their 30, gains 5 on the ground and then a pass completion for 33 to LeRoy 32. Two plays later, Nick Egeling recovers a fumble, snuffing out the Mustang drive. LeRoy head coach Brian Herdlein runs out the clock. At the half, Dansville was ahead in total offense yardage, 96 to 59 yards.

LeRoy receives the second half kickoff. Nick Egeling fields the ball and dashes 24 yards to the LR 49. Incomplete pass, defensive offsides (2nd-and-5), and Egeling for no gain. The Knights decide to go for it on 4th down, much to the LR fans' delight. Egeling goes right with the ball, cuts back, sheds a couple of tackles, and races 43 yards for the touchdown. Mary Purdy kicks the PAT and the Knights are up 7-0 and the momentum has seemed to shift.

Dansville starts their first drive of the second half from their own 25. Reed Kacur chases down the runner for a 5-yard loss, Hogle and Piazza stop West for no gain, and on third down, Kacur sacks the QB for a 3-yard loss, which forces another Mustang punt.

Starting from their 45, the Knights would strike again. Laurie passes to Kacur for 40 yards to the Mustang 15. Josh rushes for 9 and Egeling crossed the goal line from 6 yards out for the score. Mary Purdy kicks the PAT, LR 14-0, and the game has most definitely changed favorably for the Knights against the gritty Mustangs.

Dansville starts at their 35 and picks up 7 yards on 3 running plays. Feeling the pressure to score, the Mustangs go for it on 4th down, but Alex West is stopped by the LeRoy tandem of Anthony Natrigo and Justin DiFalco for a 1-yard loss, which turns the ball over on downs to the Knights.

The Dansville defense holds strong and forces the Knights to punt on 4th down.

Starting at their 40, Dansville is unable to move the ball (Hogle stops the runners for no gain on 1st and 3rd down while Justin DiFalco tips a pass on 2nd) and punts the ball away. Josh Laurie fields the ball for the Knights at the 35 moves left and then sprints down the Dansville sideline for an incredible 65-yard TD. Mary Purdy kicks the PAT to push LeRoy's lead to 21-0.

Dansville again is stifled by the LeRoy defense and goes 3-and-out. The Mustangs punt the ball as the 3rd quarter runs out. Benny Piazza's punt return gives LeRoy the ball at the Dansville 40. LR's possession ends on downs and Dansville, being behind, is forced to go for the first down on a 4th-and-3 at their own 25. Anthony Natrigo makes a fine play, dropping the runner for a 2 -yard loss, thus giving LR a short field to work with.

Filio-2, Filio-2, Flint-12, defensive personal foul for half the distance to the goal, before Dom Filio races around right end from three yards out for the Knights' final TD. Mary Purdy kicks the PAT with ease, her fourth of the game and tenth consecutive for the season to push the final game tally to 28-0 LeRoy.

The adjustments made by the LeRoy coaching staff vaulted the Knights to 165 yards on offense in the second half while Dansville managed just 32 yards after intermission.

LeRoy improves to 2-0 and travels to Cohocton next Friday (9/18) to play Wayland-Cohocton. Game time is 7:30 PM.
