The LeRoy Senior Knights

took a trip down 390 to take

on the Dansville Mustangs in

Dansville on Sunday October

16th. The 5-1 Knights came

to town needing a win to stay

alive in the championship hunt

against the 4-2 Mustangs.

Dansville began the game

with the ball, and used their

enormous size to move the

chains. But the gritty LeRoy

linebackers made some ad-

justments, and after tackles

by Drew Strollo and Xavien

Walker the Mustangs turned

the ball over on downs. The

Knights offense moved the

chains quickly with runs by

Jackson Fix. A 30 yard scam-

per by Drew Strollo put the

Knights inside the 10 yard

line. Fix would dart in from

6 yards out for the TD. Strollo

tacked on the 2 point conver-

sion, giving the Knights an

early 8-0 lead.

The Kn igh t s defen s e

would hold strong again, this

time with tough defensive line

play from Hunter Beverly,

Ayden Riggi, and Jack Lathan.

After a turnover on downs, Le-

Roy handed the ball right back

to the Dansville offense with a

LeRoy 22 - Dansville 8

fumbled snap. Dansville’s of-

fense would capitalize, scoring

3 plays later. The conversion

attempt would succeed, leav-

ing the score at 8-8 early in the

2nd quarter.

LeRoy’s offense took over

the ball and initially started

moving down the field. How-

ever a holding call, and several

good plays by the Dansville

defense would force a turnover

on downs. Dansville began

to move the ball down the

field, threatening to score at

the end of the half. However

the Knights defense dug their

cleats in and prevented the

score, sending the game to

halftime tied 8-8.

LeRoy’s offense came out

in the second half inspired

and motivated to keep their

season alive. Behind excellent

blocking by Adrian Stephens,

Aiden Davis, Jack Lathan,

Zack Tooley, Hunter Beverly,

Tristian Jones, and Ryan Hig-

gins, the offense moved the

ball down the field quickly.

Jackson Fix, Tony Piazza, and

Riley Williams all gobbled up

yards in chunks. Fix would

bull into the end zone from

5 yards out to take the lead.

A missed conversion attempt

would hold the score at 14-8


The defense, f lying all

over the f ield would hold

strong again, this time pow-

ered by ends Connor Hegeman

and Ryan Higgins. The turn-

over on downs would give the

Knights the ball in excellent

field position. Two big runs

by Jackson Fix behind Joey

Biletskiy, Tristen Weiseltier,

Iaien Frawley, Ayden Riggi,

Bryce Lathan, and Josh Horner

put the Knights inside the 5

yards line. Beefy fullback

Tony Piazza would bull into

the end zone from 1 yard out to

score the TD, with Fix tacking

on the 2 point conversion giv-

ing LeRoy a 22-8 lead.

The 4th quarter featured

the LeRoy defense again hold-

ing their ground, not allowing

another score. The Knights

offense continued to move

the ball, eventually taking a

knee in the victory formation

deep in Dansville territory to

secure the win and keep their

season alive.

Hunter Beverly was a beast

on defense, notching 8 tackles

and plugging holes all day.

Xavien Walker (7) and Tony

Piazza (5) made multiple stops

as well from their linebacker

positions. Other defenders

making multiple stops includ-

ed Drew Strollo (3), L-Squared

- Bryce Lathan (3) and Jack

Lathan (2), Jackson Fix (3),

Ayden Riggi (2), Connor He-

geman (5), Ryan Higgins (3),

and Antonio Martinez (2).

Other Knights contributing

on tackles included Connor

McGee, Riley Williams, and

William Bogan.

Jackson Fix paced the

LeRoy Knights offense with

exceptionally hard running,

accumulating 115 yards with

2 TDs and a conversion. Tony

Piazza added 50 yards and a

TD. In just over a quarter’s

worth of work, Drew Strollo

had 40 yards on the ground

and a conversion. Riley Wil-

liams added 25 yards, while

Tommy Condidorio completed

all 3 of his passes. Ryan Hig-

gins caught a pass for 5 yards.

The 6-1 Senior Knights

the undefeated Geneseo Blue

Devils squad with a trip to the

championship on the line.
