2nd half rally lifts Jr. Knights past Livonia 20-12
Recap by Barney Mase

The mark of a good team is how well it responds after a disappointing loss. For the first half, LR`s defense struggled with the Livonia Jr. Bulldogs' Wing-T offense, allowing 166 yards rushing and 2 TDs, to trail at intermission 12-6. The JV Knights responded with great heart and determination by taking control early in the second half, scoring on their first 2 drives enroute to a 20-12 win.

To start the game Livonia needed all but 2 plays to score on a 59-yd run for a quick 6-0 lead.

Taking a different approach, LR methodically moved the ball down the field behind their 1-2 punch of HB Tyler Scofield and FB Jon Casper. Running the ball 13 straight plays, LR chewed up 6:36 off the clock and traveled 63 yards with Casper gaining the last yard for the TD to tie the score at 6. The BIG play of the drive came on a 4th-and-2 at the Livonia 12 as Scofield picked up 6 yards to keep the scoring drive alive.

Employing a bend but don't break approach, LR's defense finally gets off the field, forcing an incomplete pass on 4th down at their 16. Picking up only one 1st down, LR punts the ball away and after a fine return Livonia starts at the LR 49.

Moving the ball in 11 plays, Livonia regains the lead 12-6 after a 5-yard TD run.

Receiving the ball beginning the 2nd half, LR starts ripping off gains, 5+ yards a pop, driving the ball to the Livonia 16. Successive penalties push the Jr. Knights back to a 1st-and-24. Mark Kelso then displays some Doug Flutie magic, scrambling out of the pocket for 13 yards on 2nd down and then completing a pass to Rick Henry to earn a 1st-and-goal at the Bulldogs' 2. Scofield crossed the goal line as LR knotted the game at 12.

LR`s defense bends just a bit on the Bulldogs' drive, allowing 2 first downs, but on 4th-and-3 Brandon Monteleone`s pass breakup gives the Knights the ball at their own 40 nearing the end of the 3rd quarter.

Tyler Scofield gains 8 and 7 yards and then on the first play of the 4th quarter he rambles 43 yards down to the Livonia 2. An apparent TD is called back on the next play due to holding, but 2 plays later Jon Casper runs it in from the 10 for the TD. Scofield runs for the 2-point PAT as LR grabs its first lead 20-12.

Jordan Boyd`s stop of the Bulldog runner in the backfield on 3rd down forces the first punt of the game for Livonia. LR marches down the field once again only to see the penalty bug strike once more. On 4th down at the Bulldogs' 19, a tipped pass is intercepted, ending the drive.

Reaching the LR 47, Mark Kelso snuffs out any Livonia hope of a comeback by intercepting the football and preserving the win.

After allowing 166 yards of offense in the 1st half, LR tightened its defense and allowed 77 yards after halftime. Scofield had his best rushing game of the year, gaining 177 yards on 31 carries, scoring one TD.
The victory ends a very successful '07 campaign at 6-2-1. I would like to thank the coaching staff of Jeff Condidorio, Jon Wilson, Greg "Porp" Rogers, and Pete Greene for the fine coaching this year.

Congratulations also to the players for picking up 6 win this season. This was a very young squad as 29 of the 39 on the roster were freshmen. A special thanks to the fans for coming out and supporting these fine young men all year long.

Cal-Mum Raiders hand
Jr. Knights 2nd Loss of '07 Season
Recap by Barney Mase

Last year, the LeRoy JVs played Hornell and Cal-Mum back to back, winning the first and losing the second game. After defeating Hornell last week, the Knights were determined not to let a repeat happen, but Cal-Mum had other ideas, taking control of the game on their first drive. The Red Raider defense limited the Knights to just 68 yards rushing, while piling up 220 of their own. After LR scored right before the first half, the Red Raiders scored on their first drive of the second half, blunting any momentum and handing the Knights their second loss of the year, by a tally of 19-6.

On the opening drive, LR gained 2 yards on 3 plays, punting the ball away. Cal-Mum took control and moved the ball 61 yards in 10 plays to open the scoring. Raiders up 7-0.
Where on the first drive, the Knights gained but 2 yards, the second drive saw LR move backwards 2 yards, thus forcing a punt.

Starting on the LR 45, Cal-Mum picked up the pace once more, moving the ball to the LR 8 before being stopped on downs. LR`s offense awakens as QB Mark Kelso hit Brandon Monteleone for a 22-yard gain. The drive stalled on the CM 39, forcing a Rick Henry punt for the 3rd time.

Heads-up play by Tim Wortman saved LR valuable field position as he fielded a CM punt and returned the ball to the CM 25. A pass interference later in the drive gave LR a 1st-and-goal at the CM 9. Three plays later, Jon Casper bulled in from the one for the TD and LR trailed just 7-6 at the half.

As noted earlier, Cal-Mum quickly regained the momentum on the first drive in the second half, needing just 3 plays to score on a run of 31 yards, increasing the Raider lead to 13-6.
LR`s first drive in the second half ended on downs at the CM 27, but the Knights defense rights itself, forcing punts on CM`s next 2 drives. Unfortunately, the Knights fumble away the second punt at their own 36.

Going for the jugular, CM went deep on the very next play for the TD, making the final margin 19-6 Cal-Mum.

At the end of the 3rd quarter, Jon Casper turned a 5-yard reception into a gain of 52, down to the CM 30. An interception stopped the drive at the 16. CM went on to control the contest the remainder of the 4th quarter.

The Jr. Knights' record is now 5-2-1 and they end their season Thursday, Oct 25th, at Livonia - 5:30 PM.

Jr. Knights Wins Fifth, Stopping Hornell 21-19
Recap by Barney Mase

The Hornell JV football squad entered LeRoy's Hartwood Park with just one loss (HFL 6-2) on their record. This would be the start of the Hornell weekend as the varsity traveled down to Hornell the very next night. With Quentin Humphrey called up to the varsity, Mark Kelso took the QB reins, responding with a steady performance as he completed 4 passes for 58 yards. Harking back to the days of the NFL in the 70's, the Knights featured two 100-yd rushers in Tyler Scofield and Jon Casper with 114 and 101 yards respectively.

After an exchange of punts, LR starts its 2nd possession on their own 35. Kelso completes 3 passes in the drive, with the first coming on a 4th-and-3 at the Red Raider 46, hitting Rick Henry for 8 yards for the first down. Next, facing 3rd-and-10 at the 26, Kelso connected with Scofield for 9 yards, setting up 4th-and-1. Reliable Jon Casper picks up the yard and the first down to move the chains. The very next play a holding penalty backs up LR to a 1st-and-22. On 2nd down, Kelso scrambles for 8 yards. On 3rd down, Kelso hits Casper for 13 yards to set up another 4th-and-1. Casper not only picks up the lone yard, he drags Hornell players on his way to a 5-yd scoring run. The drive covers 65 yards in 18 plays. Austin Steinbrenner kicks the PAT for a 7-0 LR lead.

Later in the 2nd quarter, the defense stops Hornell on downs at the LR 27. The next offensive series displays the Knights' big play capability, as they need but 5 plays to score. Dylan Ashley makes a nice catch for 28 yards, and Scofield takes a draw and scoots left 30 yards into the end zone for a 13-0 advantage with 0:39 left in the 1st half.

Too much time left on the clock as Hornell hits for a 49-yd TD pass as the half ends, cutting the LR lead to 13-6.

Producing a 37-yd return of the 2nd half kickoff, Hornell starts on LR`s side of the field at the 45. A pickup of 33 yards moves the ball to the 12. LR`s defense pushes back the Hornell offense 2 yards on the next 3 plays, forcing a 4th-and-12. A catch over the middle at the 8 and run into the end zone cuts the Jr. Knights' lead to 13-12 as the PAT fails for the Raiders.

An interception ends the next drive for the Knights, but Hornell implodes on its drive, picking up 2 penalties before punting the ball away. Keeping the ball on the ground with Casper and Scofield, LR moves down the field in 10 plays, capping off the scoring drive with a Casper 4-yd TD run. Scofield runs in the PAT for a 21-12 lead.

Tim Wortman`s pass breakup on 4th down stops Hornell on downs, giving the ball back to the LR offense which fumbles away the ball 5 plays later. Needing just over 90 seconds, Hornell scores on a run of 5 yards and kicks the PAT to cut the LR lead to 21-19 with 2:09 left.

The onside kick goes out of bounds and LR keeps the ball, running out the clock. The victory raises the Knights' record to 5-1-1. Next game is Wednesday, October 17th, at Hartwood Park against rival Cal-Mum.

Jr. Knights Win Defensive Struggle 7-0 over Letchworth
Recap by Barney Mase

On a balmy October night, LeRoy's offense awoke from its slumber in the second half , putting together a trademark Knight-time drive scoring on a Jon Casper 1-yard plunge in the 4th quarter. LR had gone 7 quarters (or to be exact, 95:36) since scoring their last TD against Marcus Whitman 2 games ago. While the offense has struggled a bit, the defense has played superbly, keeping the games close behind the play of Vince Kovach and Jon Casper.

In the first half neither team mustered much offense with 2 possessions ending in 3-and- outs. LR did put together a mini-drive near the end of the first half, driving into Letchworth territory, only to suffer an interception.

Quentin Humphrey quickly atoned by intercepting back 3 plays later, returning the pick 39 yards to the Indians' 32 with 9 seconds left. A double pass netted 17 yards as the half ran out.

Josh Kosiorek set the tone early for the 2nd half, dropping the Letchworth runner for a loss of 5 on the first play from scrimmage. Forcing a punt, LR starts its first drive on its own 35.
Picking up a first down, the turnover bug bit again as LR fumbled at midfield.

Put in a tough spot, the defense held the Indians without a first down (this is the only time all game that Letchworth crossed into LR territory) and started the next drive on their 15 with 4:29 left in the third.

A pass reception for 24 yards by Dylan Ashley started the series. The offensive line started to control the line of scrimmage and Coach Condidorio showed his confidence going for it on 4th-and-1 at LR's 48. Humphrey's QB sneak picks up the FD. Trading carries, Casper and Scofield's punishing runs move the ball to the 14. From the 5, Casper lugs the ball 3 straight runs, finally crossing the goal line with 7:19 left in the contest. The drive covered 85 yds in 18 plays burning 9:10 off the clock. Humphrey kicks the PAT for a 7-0 LR lead.

LR stops the Indians on 3 plays as Humphrey and Kosiorek stop the runner short of the FD by 2 yards. Punting the ball away, Letchworth pins the Knights back on its own 16 hoping to get the ball back one more time.

LR made sure that did not happen. Casper runs for 26. Scofield picks up 6 and 9 and then Casper another 10. LR marches to the Letchworth 12 as time runs out.

Notes: In the 2nd half, Letchworth's 3 possessions ended in 3-and-outs, gaining only 14 yds. Other members of the defense are Mark Kelso, Cal Whiting, Brandon Monteleone, Josh Sackett, Tim Wortman, Dylan Ashley, and Tim Wortman.

The win raises the Knights record to 4-1-1. Next game is home Thursday, October 8th against Hornell

Jr. Knights lose to Avon in Battle of the Unbeatens
Recap by Barney Mase

The LeRoy JV Knights traveled down Route 5 to take on the unbeaten Avon Braves in wet and blustery conditions. During the summer, the Braves' field was worked on and the results were positive as the field held up very well in the steady rain. This game brought back memories of the old gridiron days of the Black and Blue Division (NFC Central). Rugged defense and strong running, with a dose of weather thrown in, made for a low scoring, yet exciting game. Avon scored the only points in the 1st quarter for the 6-0 win.

LR's Tyler Scofield came into the game on a tear with 3 straight 100+ games, but was held in check with just 29 yards. FB Jon Casper picked up the hard yards between the tackles as he carried tacklers and bulled for 97 yards, conjuring up memories of Larry Csonka.

After both teams went 3-and-out to start the game, Avon hits paydirt (mud) on their third drive. Fielding a short Knight punt, the Braves' runner returned the kick 5 yards. A 5-yd facemask penalty put the ball at the LR 35. Facing a 4th-and-3 at the 28, the Avon RB scoots around left end for a TD with 1:53 left in the 1st quarter.

LR twice drove deep into Avon territory in the 2nd quarter. On the first drive, the Jr. Knights reached the Avon12 with a 1st-and-10. The end stalled as the Avon D sacks QB Quentin Humphrey on 4th down. The second drive saw the Knights earn a 1st-and-5 at the Avon 9 only to be stopped on 4 downs just before the half.

The first series of the 2nd half saw LR stopped on a 4th-and-1 at their own 43-yard line. The defense bends, but does not break, stopping the Braves on 4th down at the LR 24.
Later in the 3rd quarter, the Jr. Knights' defense comes up big, recovering a fumble at their 47. Picking up 2 first downs, the drive falters at the Avon 29 on a 4th down incompletion, ending the last best scoring chance of the game.

Next up is a 3-game homestand with the Knights taking on Letchworth, Thursday Oct 4th at 5:30 PM. Note: LR`s defense was formidable in the game, limiting Avon to just 105 total yards of offense.

Jr. Knights turn out the lights on
Marcus Whitman to move to 3-0-1
Recap by Barney Mase

After giving up some big plays in the 1st half, LR`s defense tightened after halftime to secure a 24-15 victory over the hometown Marcus Whitman Wildcats. RB Tyler Scofield went over the 100-yd mark for the third straight game with 138 yds and 3 TDs, while flanker Mark Kelso came up with some timely receptions while playing injured to lead the Knights to victory.

Receiving the short kickoff, LR starts their 1st drive from their own 46. Seven plays later, Scofield runs in from the 9 yds for the Jr. Knights. The PAT kick is no good for a 6-0 LeRoy advantage .

A yellow flag is the Knights' best friend as an 86-yd scoring run for the Wildcats is called back for holding. A 50-yd punt by Marcus Whitman and a holding call on the Knights backs up the start of LR's second drive to the 16. Managing just one first down, the Knights punt.

After a Josh Kosiorek sack backs up MW, Whitman`s offense starts making big plays. On a 3rd-and-15, two pass completions for 13 and 17 yds pushes the locals into LR territory at the 36. Two more runs and the Cats find themselves on the 1-yd line. LR stops the run on 1st and 2nd downs, but MW punches it in on the next play around end. The kick is good and LR trails for the first time all season 7-6.

Mark Kelso (Mr. Utility) runs the kickoff back 30 yds to midfield and with a unsportsmanlike penalty tacked on, the Knights take over at the MW 35. FB Jon Casper plows through the defense for 15 yds on back-to-back carries. Scofield takes over, running the last 3 plays of the scoring drive, capping it off with a 3-yd run into the end zone. The PAT run fails, but the Knights have regained the lead 12-7.

Quentin Humphrey`s kickoff and excellent coverage by Vince Kovach pins the Wildcats at their 16. Again showing the ability to move the ball, MW needs just 3 plays to reach the LR 37. Facing a 4th -and-6, Austin Steinbrenner stops the runner short of the FD, turning the ball over to the Knights.

A fine catch and run by Dylan Ashley converts a 3rd-and-11, but 3 plays later LR fumbles away the ball at the Whitman 42. Runs of 24, 7, and 23 carry the Wildcats down to the LR 15 with 24 ticks left until halftime. Defensive breakups by Ashley and Humphrey end the half.

Unable to force a 3-and-out on Whitman`s previous 3 drives, LR starts out the 2nd half doing just that as Mike Gambos and Jon Casper sack the QB on 3rd down. Another fine punt of 47 yds pushes LR to start from their own 27.

Reaching the MW 48, Humphrey is sacked for 6 yds on 3rd down, forcing a punt. A punt return of 28 yds has the Wildcats starting their drive at their own 46.

Gaining only 3 yds on the next 2 plays, MW fires an incomplete pass on 3rd down, leaving a 4th-and-7 at their 49 with 3:02 left in the 3rd. On a most curious call, Whitman elects to go for it on 4th (remember earlier punts of 50 and 47 yds?) and Gambos breaks up the pass .

With momentum now swung in LR`s favor due to the generously given field position, Scofield needs only one play to score from the 49. The PAT run again fails, but the Knights have upped their lead to 18-7.

Jordan Boyd`s fumble recovery snuffs out the next Whitman drive.

Mark Kelso's 3 receptions highlight the last LR scoring drive. Converting a 3rd-and-9, Kelso hauls in a 18-yd pickup and later in the drive takes a swing pass for 12 yds down to the one. Big Jon Casper plunges in a play later to make it LR 24, MW 7.

Marcus Whitman sets up their final tally with a lack of wattage and a finely timed Statue of Liberty play on a huge 3rd-and-50 (no lie) with less than a minute on the always running clock to make the final 24-15.

Tim Wortman came up big on defense in the 4th quarter, registering a sack and intercepting a pass.

LR improves to 3-0-1 and take on an undefeated Avon team Thursday, Sept 27th in Avon.

Jr. Knights drub York Golden Knights 35-0 for Win #2
Recap by Barney Mase

The LeRoy JVs finally opened their home schedule after two road games under beautiful fall conditions. Despite outplaying York in the 1st half, LR led only 13-0 due to two lost fumbles deep in the opponents' territory. Overall LR fumbled 6 times, losing 3 (the Varsity must have caught the bug fumbling away the football 5 times against Wellsville the very next night). Coach Condidorio made aware his unhappiness at halftime and the offense responded by scoring on their first 3 possessions in the second half to put the game away.

Starting the game, York tries an onside kick and LR recovers at their 48. On the menu was featured back Tyler Scofield. Touching the ball 7 times in the 9-play drive, Tyler takes it in from the 6. Quentin Humphrey kicks the PAT five minutes into the game.

The defense forces a 3-and-out and LR starts their O drive at midfield. Moving the ball down the field, the hosts suffer their first fumble at the York 8 yd line. The defense does not yield a first down as Vince Kovach and Josh Kosiorek catch the York runner in the backfield for a 7-yd loss. A short punt puts LR at the York 35.

Three successive runs by Jon Casper (11 yds) and Scofield (16 and 8 yds) brings the ball to the 1. Casper bulls in for the TD. The PAT is no good and LR leads 13-zip with about nine minutes left in the 2nd quarter.

York starts a nice drive on their 33. Four straight runs of 5, 19, 1, and 14 moves the ball to the LR 28 with a 1st-and-10. Kovach and Eric Stella drop the Golden Knights' runners for losses on the next two plays. Kovach breaks up a 3rd down pass attempt setting up 4th-and-15. Dylan Ashley, showing excellent athletic ability, intercepts the ball at the seven and returns the pigskin 14 yds, thwarting the York drive. The Knights move the ball to the 19 before suffering their second lost fumble of the half.

Starting the second half, Cal Whiting comes up big, tackling the punter after a poor snap for a 20-yd loss to give LR the ball on the York 10. Three plays later, Rick Henry takes it in from the 5 and runs in the PAT for a 21-0 LR lead.

Chris Merica sacking the QB on 1st, Andrew Tomidy and Stella stuffing the runner for no gain on 2nd, and Ashley breaking up the pass on 3rd, forces another 3-and-out by the York O.

Starting from their 36, LR needs only 5 plays to score. Humphrey to Casper for 9, Scofield picks up 10, Casper gallops for 33 to the 12, a Scofield run for 9, and lastly a Mark Kelso 3-yd scamper for a TD. The PAT is no good, LR 27-0.

Anthony Privitera recovers the fumble on the second play of the drive stopping another York drive. Starting on the York 22, the LR drive is all Rick Henry. Carrying the ball on 6 straight plays, Henry scores his second TD of the game on a 10-yd run. Brad Morgan runs in the PAT for the final margin of victory 35-0.

LR`s reserves received the majority of playing time in the 4th quarter. Standing out were Steven Dumbleton (interception), Mike Gambos (fumble recovery), Josh Sackett, Evan Spink, Ben Eadie, and Ryan Frank.

Question from BMase: Is Rick Henry related to Mr. LeRoy Football.com and in Leroy football history, how many Henrys have scored?

Answer: A Henry did manage to cross a goal-line in LeRoy football history to score as TE George Henry scored on a PAT pass reception in 1974 on a throw from QB Phil Lamendola in an lopsided win over the Warsaw Tigers. However, Rick's TD run in the Geneseo contest prior to the York game, marked the first TD scored by a Henry on the JV/Varsity level in 110 years (which is how long LeRoy has been playing scholastic football !). With every game, Rick Henry is becoming more and more related to the LeRoy webmaster.

Next up for LR is another road game at Marcus Whitman on Sept 20th.

JVs shake off slow start to down Geneseo 35-6
Recap by Barney Mase

Trailing 6-0, Tim Wortman`s interception on Geneseo`s second possession changed momentum setting up LR`s first TD. The Knights never looked back, running off to a 35-6 victory to earn their first win of the season.

Starting on the Blue Devils' 29, Tyler Scofield`s 6-yd run broke the ice putting the Knights on the board. The PAT failed leaving the score tied at 6. Key play in the 3-play drive was Jon Casper`s gallop for 22 yds.

LR`s special teams came through on the next series. On 4th down and punting, the Geneseo snapper sailed the ball over the punter's head. Joe Kilby tackled the punter for a 22-yd loss. Again LR works with a short field, starting on the Geneseo 26. Just like the first scoring drive, LR scores in just 3 plays with Casper taking it in from the 21. Mark Kelso finds Dylan Ashley in the back of the end zone for the 2-pt. conversion and LR leads 14-6.

Forcing another 3-and-out, LR starts the next drive on their 46. Scofield, filling in for the injured Quentin Huimphrey, carries the ball on 4 straight plays to the Geneseo 27. Following a Casper run, Tyler picks up 18 yds down to the 3 where Casper powers it in for the score. Austin Steinbrenner kicks the extra point for a 21-6 lead by the Jr. Knights.

Receiving the second half kickoff, LR puts the game away on another scoring drive. Running 12 straight times, the Knights hit paydirt as Scofield takes it in from the 12. The run for the PAT is good. LR 29-6.

LR`s reserves played the rest of the game and Rick Henry scored the final TD on a 34 yd run.
Several players stood out in the victory. Tyler Scofield - 22 rushes for 142 yds and 2 TDs, Jon Casper - 9/74 yds and 2 TDs, Rick Henry 6/68 yds and a TD, Austin Steinbrenner - 9 tackles, Tim Wortman - interception and fumble recovery, and Andrew Tomidy - interception.

Next up is York on Sept 13th at home at 5:30 PM.

Jr. Knights Tie Batavia in '07 Season Opener
Recap by Barney Mase

The JV Football Knights opened the '07 season on the road for the second straight year, once again against Batavia. There were a few differences when compared to the '06 opener. One - there was sunshine instead of last year's rain; two - Jeff Condidorio has taken over the head coaching reins; three - LR alum Pete Greene ('97/'98 varsity) has been added to the coaching staff; and lastly, LR did not lose the contest, settling for a 14-14 tie with the Jr. Blue Devils. Coach Condidorio inherits a young roster of 10 sophomores and 29 freshmen. At least 9 starters play both offense and defense, so developing depth will be a key goal for the rest of the season.

Jon Casper, imitating Bruce Smith, and correctly guessing the snap count, breaks through the Batavia O-line, stealing the handoff from the Blue Devil QB and dashing 23 yds for the Knights' first score of the season. Quentin Humphrey kicked the PAT for a 7-0 LR lead.

LR`s defense forces a 3-and-out, followed by a 12-yd punt to gain excellent field position at the Batavia 49. Humphrey`s inside-out rushing and Casper`s power inside running moved the ball down the field. Mark Kelso completes two passes, one to Tyler Scofield. Humphrey keeps the drive alive picking up 3 yds on a 4th-and-3. Facing a 4th-and-7 from the 10, Kelso throws a screen pass to Humphrey, who follows some nice blocking to get inside the end zone pylon for the TD. Quentin again kicks the PAT, to put the Jr. Knights up by a 14-0 tally.

Batavia responds quickly to the LR scoring. Starting at their own 40, the Blue Devils march down the field in 12 plays, getting on the scoreboard after converting three 3rd downs during the drive. The pass for the PAT is good, to cut LR`s lead to 14-8 just before halftime.

LR receives the first break of the second half as Eric Stella recovers a fumbled punt at the Batavia 34. The Blue Devils' defense sends the LR offense backwards on 3 plays, forcing a LR punt that pins the locals at their own 17.

Batavia continues their offensive momentum garnered at the end of the 1st half and moves the ball against the LR defense. Six Batavia plays has the Batavia offense in Knights territory at the LR 42. LR receives its second big break of the half as Vince Kovach recovers a fumbled snap exchange to end the Blue Devils' drive.

LR`s possession is not fruitful as two penalties are registered, before a fumble returns the ball back to Batavia. Wasting no time, Batavia needs only two plays to score on a 43-yd TD pass. The pass for the PAT in the right flats lands incomplete, leaving the score tied at 14 in the 4th quarter.

Fine kickoff coverage by Batavia pins LR at their own 13 for the Knights' drive start. Picking up a first down, LR`s drive is stalled on 3rd down as a pass attempt is deflected at the line of scrimmage.

After a nice punt return, Batavia starts a drive at their own 47 with but 3:26 left in the game. A LR offsides on 4th-and-1 moves the chains for the 1st down at the LR 39. An 18-yd pass completion moves the ball to the 21 as Batavia calls its first timeout with 52 seconds remaining. The LR defense stiffens, forcing incomplete passes on 3rd and 4th downs with 14 seconds left. The game ends as a 14-all tie between the evenly matched squads.

The Jr. Knights look for their first victory of the young season in Geneseo on Thursday, Sept 6th at 5:30 PM.
