LE ROY - The Livonia football team opened up a two touchdown lead early in the first half then held off a furious Le Roy comeback in the final minutes for a 28-22 victory in a big contest at Hartwood Park on Friday night.

The Bulldogs scored 22 first quarter points and stopped Le Roy with two defensive stands.

Livonia finished the regular season at 6-1 and will be the No. 2 seed in the Section V Class B sectionals. The loss dropped Le Roy to 4-3. The Oatkan Knights will likely have the No. 6 spot in the Class C playoffs and will likely have to travel to No. 3 Attica on Friday night.

Matt Hyde led Livonia with 11 carries for 116 yards, including a big 72-yard score in the first quarter that gave the Bulldogs an early 16-0 lead; an interception of Le Roy quarterback Josh Laurie set up Livonia's first score, a 4-yard John Smith TD run.

Le Roy tried to quickly answer Smith's touchdown with running back Nick Egeling streaking 35 yards on first down to the Livonia 23, but the drive would stall at the 14-yard line.

Following Hyde's long scoring run, Le Roy's Egeling took off on a stunning 70-yard run of his own on the Oatkan Knights' first play after the kickoff. Egeling took the handoff from Laurie and started left, he turned the corner with a tremendous stiff arm and tiptoed along the sideline until cutting back across the field running diagonally to the end zone as he outraced the defense for Le Roy's first score. The ensuring 2-point conversion run from Egeling made it 16-8.

Livonia quickly extended its lead with a 51-yard touchdown pass from Brody Metcalf to Ethan Perham to make it 22-8 with 1:29 still remaining in the opening frame.

Le Roy again cut into the lead in the second quarter when Dom Filio scored from a yard out and Mary Purdy added the extra point to make it 22-15.

But Metcalf would strike again, this time from 25 yards out to Hyde to give Livonia a 28-15 lead with 46 seconds left in the half.

Le Roy threatened to score again before halftime as they marched down the field after a long pass from Laurie to Ryan Boyce. The Livonia defense stiffened and didn't allow LeRoy to score after the Knights earned a first-and-goal from the 6-yard line.

In the third quarter, Laurie scored on a three-yard run and the Purdy PAT kick made it 28-22, but the Oatkan Knights could get any closer though plenty of drama remained.

Le Roy's defense stopped Livonia on fourth down with 2:53 left in the game, trailing by a touchdown. On the first play from scrimmage, Laurie connected with Ben Piazza for 35 yards. Piazza made the over-the-shoulder catch between two Bulldog defenders before falling to the ground.

Short runs by Filio and Egeling got Le Roy to the Livonia 24-yard-line with 53 seconds left and a critical fourth down loomed. Laurie completed a pass for a first down, but the offense stalled at the 16-yard-line. On fourth-and-10 Laurie eluded a heavy rush and scrambled, but his run netted only 9 yards and Livonia took over, taking a knee to end the game.

Egeling finished the night with 179 yards on 22 carries, Filio had 55 yards on 11 totes and Laurie added 43 yards rushing on nine carries.

Livonia's Perham finished with 73 yards rushing on nine carries and Smith added 51 yards on nine carries in the win. Metcalf went 4-of-10 for 103 yards and two touchdowns.

Nate Flint had 9 tackles to lead the Le Roy defense, while Laurie had 8 stops, and Ben Piazza earned 7 in the hard fought contest.
