LeRoy’s offense moved the ball at will on their first pos- session, which culminated with a 25-yard TD run to the pylon as Drew Strollo outraced a speedy Avon defender. The conversion attempt failed, leaving the score at 6-0 LeRoy. LeRoy’s defense stepped up again, forcing a punt on Avon’s next possession. Again, behind a balanced running attack, Le- Roy’s offense moved the ball down the field steadily. Drew Strollo would punch in a TD from 5 yards out, with Tony Piazza scoring on a pass from Tommy Condidorio to succeed on the conversion, extending the early 1st quarter lead to 14-0. Avon failed to convert a first down on their next offen- sive possession, giving the ball back to LeRoy again around midfield. LeRoy drove down the field again, however a lost fumble would hand the ball back to Avon. LeRoy’s defense again forced a quick punt. The offense took over, and Tony Pi- azza bulled his way downfield for a big gain to set up the of- fense for its 3rd score. Tommy Condidorio took advantage of his legs rather than his arm on this drive, darting untouched for an 11-yard TD run. Piazza punched in the conversion, ex- tending the lead to 22-0.

This time, Tony Piazza thwarted the drive with an in- terception, taking the lead into half. LeRoy’s offense continued to move the ball in big chunks behind runs by Piazza and Strollo as the second half start- ed with LeRoy getting the ball. Cal Koukides ended the drive with a weaving 23-yard TD run, dodging multiple defenders. Tommy Condidorio would hit Strollo for the conversion, ex- tending the lead to 30-0 early in the 3rd quarter.
