LeRoy Junior Knights

LeRoy 26 – Dansville 8

Game 7 of the Junior Knights’

season was played at Babcock

Park deep in the valley of Dans-

ville. Mother Nature provided

a nice fall backdrop on a sunny

and unseasonably warm Sunday


Dansville started with the

ball as LeRoy won the toss and

deferred to the second half.

LeRoy’s defense showed up

ready to play as they held Dans-

ville to negative three yards on

their first possession. Andrew

Greene and Zach Samis took

control of the line of scrimmage

and Luke Lathan met the run-

ning back twice behind the line

of scrimmage.

LeRoy would take over

at Dansville’s 32 yard line.

Consecutive offside penalties

by Dansville set up LeRoy at

Dansville’s 22. Adam Wood-

worth, Jake Higgins and Luke

Lathan teamed up along with

another offside penalty on the

“D” to give LeRoy the ball at

Dansville’s 3 yard line when

Adam Woodworth punched

it for the score. Woodworth

followed up his touchdown run

with a successful PAT try giving

LeRoy the early lead. LeRoy

8 – Dansville 0.

On Dansville’s second pos-

session, they were able to hold

onto the ball for 11 plays taking

the ball down to LeRoy’s 44 yard

line. It was there, on 3rd and

long, that Avante’ Walker made

a great play while in perfect

pass coverage to deflect the ball

away from the receiver. Then on

4th down, Walker made another

great play “on the edge” to stop

the Dansville ball carrier from

reaching the 1st down marker.

A qu i ck t u r nove r gave

Dansville the ball right back

at the LeRoy 43 yard line.

Dansville again held onto the

ball for 8 plays however on 4th

and 4, Holden Sullivan burst

through the line wrapping up

the Dansville running back at

the LeRoy 40.

A holding call negated a 55

yard touchdown run on the sec-

ond play of LeRoy’s next drive,

but not for long. On the very

next play, AdamWoodworth got

free for 65 yards behind the left

side of the LeRoy line. After an

unsuccessful extra point attempt,

LeRoy led by 14 points. LeRoy

14 – Dansville 0.

The first half ended when the

Dansville quarterback’s pass fell

short of his intended receiver

after another 8 play drive by

Dansville. In all, Dansville’s

offense held onto the ball for 31

first half plays while limiting the

LeRoy offense to only 12 plays

and 14 points. Halftime Score –

LeRoy 14 – Dansville 0.

LeRoy’s offense opened up

the second half with the ball

and would embark on the first of

two 11 play second half scoring

drives. The backfield of Lathan,

Higgins and Woodworth would

share the ball as they marched

methodically down the field

leading to a 3 yard touchdown

run by Adam Woodworth to

push the score to LeRoy 20 –

Dansville 8.

Dansville’s only score came

on the next possession when they

raced down field in two plays, a

20 yard scamper followed by a

well-executed counter that re-

sulted in a 45 yard touchdown. A

successful PAT attempt made the

score LeRoy 20 – Dansville 8.

LeRoy’s final score came

on the next possession, their

second 11 play drive of the

second half. All four members

of LeRoy’s backfield got in

on this one as Jude Sherman,

Jake Higgins, Luke Lathan and

Adam Woodworth teamed up

to move the ball down to the

4 yard line where Luke Lathan

finished it off with a touch-

down run up the middle. Final
