Leading off today:
Joe Ferguson scored on a 1-yard run on fourth down with one second left to cap a big rally as Holy Trinity defeated Buffalo St. Francis
42-41 Saturday in non-league football.
Holy Trinity scored the game's last four TDs and overcame a deficit of 41-14 with about 7:00 to play.. Ferguson's run completed an 80-yard drive.
Rutgers-bound Holy Trinity quarterback Chris Laviano completed 24 of 36 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns, with four scores coming in the fourth quarter. His work offset 288 rushing yards and five TDs by St. Francis' Alex Misterman. Misterman scored on carried of 1, 28, 20, 40 and 49 yards.
Ryan Alexander of Holy Trinity caught 12 passes for 130 yards and Three TDs.
Lawrence rolls: Last time out, Lawrence scored 61 points -- and lost. This time, Jordan and Tyler Fredericks combined for eight TDs, including two on defense, and Lawrence routed Glen Cove 62-7.
Lawrence, a 78-61 loser to Sayville in the 2011 Long Island Championships, got 311 all-purpose yards and five TDs by Jordan Fredericks, who rushed for 132 yards. His interception returns of 95 and 47 yards went for TDs.
Tyler Fredericks put up 198 all-purpose yards.
Tottenville sharp in opener: Brandon Barnes, back from a season-ending knee injury last year, threw TDs of 71 and 51 yards to 6-foot-4 receiver Malique Belfort as Tottenville breezed past Fort Hamilton 32-0 in a PSAL opener.
Coach Jim Munson compared Belfort favorably with former Tottenville receiver Alvin Cornelius, now a freshman at Syracuse.
“I think he still has a ways to go,” Munson told The New York Daily News. “But I think he’s become a little more serious because he knows this is his shot.”
A rewarding long day: Tom Sydeski threw a 12-yard TD pass to Alex Alverez on fourth down in the second OT to lift Brockport to a 27-24 victory vs. Greece Olympia.
Olympia had taken its first lead of the game on a 30-yard field goal by Bryan Collister to start the second overtime.
Sydeski finished 13 of 23 with three TDs but four interceptions. Alverez caught nine passes for 108 yards and two TDs.
Championship form: Does anyone really have a chance of taking down Maine-Endwell in Class B this season? The evidence thus far suggests that the 2011 NYSPHSAA Class A champions are heading to another title in the Carrier Dome.
