LE ROY PENNYSAVER & NEWS - OCTOBER 1, 2017 LeRoy Senior Knights LeRoy 32 Wayland 0 The LeRoy Senior Football squad took a long trip to Way- land in the sweltering heat for their 4th game of the season on September 24th. The Senior Knights remained as hot as the weather, completing their 3rd shutout in a row while domi- nating on both sides of the ball. The victory ran their record to 4-0 at the halfway point of the season. A huge kickoff by Zach Tooley pinned the Wayland Eagles deep in their own terri- tory. After tackles for loss by Jackson Fix and Drew Strollo, a nice punt by Wayland gave their defense some breathing room. LeRoy began moving the ball behind the laser sharp arm of QB Tommy Condidorio. Condidorio completed 5 passes in a row, moving the ball inside the Wayland 10 within minutes. However, the Eagles defense eventually forced a turnover taking the ball inside their own 5. LeRoy’s defense stood strong again, forcing a punt. Zach Tooley barged in and blocked the punt which Con- nor Hegeman covered inside the 5-yard line. Two plays lat- er, bruising running back Tony Piazza scored a TD to give Le- Roy the early lead. Jackson fix punched in the conversion to extend the score to 8-0. Wayland’s next offensive possession resulted in another quick turnover on downs. Drew Strollo then took the next play from scrimmage the distance for a 24-yard TD, extending the lead to 14-0 early in the 2nd quarter. Jackson Fix absolutely flew down the field on the en- suing kickoff, recovering the ball before any Wayland players were close by. LeRoy kept the momentum going, and 3 plays later Adam Woodworth broke free for a 24-yard TD run, mak- ing the score 20-0 LeRoy. Another 3 and out gave Le- Roy the football once again. Nice runs by Adrian Stephens and Tony Piazza moved the ball into Wayland territory. The stage was set for Peter Clark, and Clark delivered. LeRoy Alum Jamie Clark, current Head Coach of the Wayland Varsity squad, watched his son dart into the end zone from 5 yards out to bring the score to 26-0 at the half LeRoy. The second half went by like a hazy blur. Due to the ex- treme heat and score, the refer- ees adopted a running clock to move the game along. LeRoy’s offense chewed up almost the entire 3rd quarter with some ground and pound. Nice runs by Luke Lathan, Adrian Ste- phens, and Josh Horner, set up Connor Hegeman. Hegeman bulled over 2 defenders for a 13-yard touchdown, finalizing the score at 32-0. LeRoy would force a quick punt, and run out the rest of the game with more smashmouth football. Defensively, LeRoy did not allow a first down for the 2nd time in 3 weeks. Lineback- ers Jackson Fix, Drew Strollo, Luke Lathan, Tony Piazza, and Cal Koukides all made multi- ple stops. Linebacker Xavi- en Walker gave the Wayland defense fits providing support from sideline to sideline. Oth- er players making stops on the day included Connor Hegeman, DJ O’Geen, Adam Woodworth, Hunter Beverly, Holden Sul- livan, Zach Tooley, and Wyatt Draper. Offensively, LeRoy was able to exert their will from play number one. Tommy Condi- dorio stayed sharp hitting 5 of his 7 passes for 47 yards. Big Tony Piazza carried the ball for 29 yards and a TD and added 2 catches for 18 yards. Jackson Fix ran for 22 yards including a 2-point conversion. Drew Strollo ran for 24 yards and a TD.

LeRoy Junior Knights The LeRoy Junior Knights traveled down to Wayland on Sunday and what turned out to be an extremely warm day. LeRoy won the toss and chose to defer. Wayland started with the ball. Grady Gilligan, Cam Riggi and Dawson “Wojo ”Wojtaszczyk ganged up for no gain to start the series. After a 1 yard loss on 2nd down, and a shared sack by Riggi and Gil- ligan, Wayland was forced to punt. On LeRoy’s first offensive play, Connor Elmore, Noah “Kacz” Kaczanowski, and Joey Reschke wasted no time moving the ball down the field against Wayland’s defense. After com- pleting a first down Elmore took the ball into the end zone on a 33 yard run. Cole Tonzi con- nected with Gilligan on the PAT attempt. LeRoy 8- Wayland-0 The LeRoy defense took to the field and Jacob Bowman, Colin Greene, Carson Caton, Wojo, and Brady McClurg forced Wayland to punt again. LeRoy 14-Wayland-0 LeRoy’s offense picked up where it left off, and on 4th down Elmore had a cutback across the field and galloped into the end zone for his second TD of the day. Wayland’s offense couldn’t get much going on their next possession. Issac Stella recov- ered a fumble giving LeRoy’s offense yet another series to drive down the field. LeRoy would get the ball at Wayland’s 20 yard line, but had problems moving down field because of multiple fumbles. Wayland’s next possession was overcome by Cam Wilson and Cole Tonzi who forced a fumble and 7 yard loss. Again, LeRoy would have good field position. Drake Schwab busted outside for a 40 yard run before getting caught from behind at the 4 yard line. The next play Stella would ease his way into the end zone be- cause of the superb blocking on the left side by Simon Greene, Brayden Chase and Bowman. LeRoy 20-Wayland 0 Wayland’s last possession of the half started with a personal foul call on LeRoy giving Way- land the ball in LeRoy territory. Wayland started moving the ball down field but the half ended before they were able to get into the end zone. The second half began with a three and out by LeRoy. Way- land had a few good tackles and forced LeRoy to turn the ball over. Wayland once again fum- bled and Cam Riggi jumped on the ball. LeRoy’s offense took back control with a 7 play 65 yard drive featuring a 32 yard run by Kaczanowski as he slid into the end zone. LeRoy 26-Wayland 0 Wayland couldn’t hold onto the ball and again fumbled, this time recovered by Carson Caton to give LeRoy the ball again. The Knights offense quickly made their way into the end zone. Joey Reschke bull- dozed his way for 22 yards and scored LeRoy’s 5th TD.
