Leading off today:
Iona Prep sent St. Anthony's to its second straight loss, defeating the Friars 30-28 in CHSFL action on Saturday. It was the Gaels' first win over St. Anthony's since the 2008 championship game.
Iona Prep is sixth in Class AA and the Friars seventh in this week's New York State Sportswriters Association ratings.
Iona Prep rushed for 301 yards, led by Mario Biaggi (161) and Shaquille Townsend (126), who scored a touchdown apiece.
The teams put up 41 points and 300 yards of offense in the first quarter. In a key sequence, the Friars went up 14-6 and recovered their onside kick. On the next play, however, the Gaels' Chris Cooper intercepted a pass and returned it 80 yards for a score.
Christian Kapp kicked a 21-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to give Iona Prep a 30-21 lead. The Friars' Brendan Femiano returned the ensuing kickoff 81 yards for a TD to complete the scoring.
Maximum efficiency: Lawrence, ranked No. 1 in Class A, rolled past Lynbrook 54-6, and Jordan Fredericks made the most of his scant opportunities.
Fredericks rushed three times for 114 yards and two touchdowns, and both his receptions went for TDs covering a combined 50 yards.
Tyler Fredericks added 177 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries, and QB Joe Capobianco went 8-for-10 for 150 yards and four touchdowns.
Fabulous finish: Receiver Sean Marshall caught a 31-yard "Hail Mary" pass from Dequan Walker on the last play of the game as Buffalo Burgard scored a 16-12 win over Springville in Section 6 action at All High Stadium.
The Bulldogs' bench swarmed the field after the catch, on which he jumped over three defenders in the corner of the end zone. The celebration drew a 15-yard penalty that did not affect the TD.
"I'll accept those (penalties) anytime, especially winning in that dramatic fashion," Burgard coach Jason Kolb told The Buffalo News.
Close call: Chancellor Harris rushed 13 times for 101 yards and four TDs -- the last two on carries of 2 and 6 yards in the fourth quarter to complete the scoring, as Class AA No. 2 Rush-Henrietta battled past Webster Schroeder 39-28.
Chauncey Scissum had 122 yards on the ground and was 14-for-21 for 202 passing yards. Bay Barley added 104 yards on 15 carries for the Royal Comets, state champions in 2010 and quarterfinal losers to eventual champ Orchard Park in 2011.
Making progress: Coxsackie-Athens won for the first time in two seasons, edging South Seneca 30-26 as freshman Zack Girvin threw for 127 yards and rushed for a game-high 187 yards and two touchdowns.
Making progress: Fallsburg, which had been 0-20 since launching varsity football in 2010, broke into the win column with a 52-6 triumph against Livingston Manor. Shakree Gibson led the way with 152 yards and three touchdowns.
