Section 4 Powers Roll to Wins
Two Section 4 football powers upped their records to 3-0 Saturday with home victories. At Spartan Stadium in Endwell the M-E Spartans crushed Owego 60-0. Quarterback Kyle Gallagher carried the ball off right tackle and ran 57 yards for the score on the first play from scrimmage to ignite Maine-Endwell’s offense as they opened up a 39-0 lead at the half. Gallagher scored his second rushing touchdown of the day late in the opening quarter on a 15 yard run. Luis Uceta added a pair of rushing touchdowns as well as the Spartan offense rolled up over 500 yards on the ground. M-E has averaged 58 points per game in three early season lopsided wins. Next up the Spartans host Johnson City Saturday at 130.
In Saturday night’s 7 PM game at Ty Cobb Stadium Union-Endicott started out in similar fashion as bruising fullback Dan Davis took a handoff from Quarterback Joey Orlando on the first play from scrimmage and beat everyone to the end zone for a 59 yard touchdown and set the stage for a Tigers 50 – 13 romp. Davis added another TD from one yard out late in the second quarter. Another Davis…Sammy scored on carries of 57 and 58 yards for a pair of touchdowns and the Tigers were in command at the end of the first half 43-7. Caleb Scepaniak fired a 9 yard touchdown pass to Thomas Mencel to cap the Tigers big game. U-E travels to Elmira next weekend.
