Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013: Carlock sets mark, lifts Babylon to win

   Leading off today: Jake Carlock returned two punts for touchdowns and caught two TD passes Friday as Babylon, ranked No. 2 in Class C by the NYSSWA, routed Hampton Bays 48-8 in Suffolk County football.

   Carlock's four catches gave him 58 for his career, eclipsing the school record of 56 by Steve Loudon in 2010. The third-year varsity player also made an interception on defense.

   Carlock's first TD patch and then scoring punt returns of 66 and 48 yards staked Babylon to a 20-0 lead in the second quarter.

   Ridiculous score of the night: Perry outlasted Cuba-Rushford 62-60 in a Section 5 tilt featuring more than 1,000 yards of total offense.

   Cuba-Rushford's Carl Holmes threw for 294 yards and ran for 116 as the Rebels rolled up 602 yards. Perry posted 463 yards, led by Cory Dillon’s 309 yards passing and six touchdowns.

   Perry led 46-42 at the half. In the fourth quarter, Dillon’s 8-yard rushing touchdown and Christian Hollister’s two-point conversion gave Perry a 62-48 lead.

   Section 1 upsets: Defending NYSPHSAA Class AA champ New Rochelle beat 20th-ranked White Plains 36-26 on the strength of Jonathan Forrest's 25 carries for 144 yards and four touchdowns -- including all three after White Plains built a 26-14 lead late in the third quarter.

   New Ro has won 23 of the last 29 meetings between the schools to pull within 55-53-5 in the all-time series.

   White Plains QB Cameron Crabbe finished 14-for-31 for 295 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

   In Class A, Lakeland toppled No. 21 John Jay Cross River 20-6 as Greg Lenane intercepted a pass and returned it 67 yards for the final touchdown in the closing minutes.

   More Class A: Buffalo South Park was convincing in its 22-0 upset of No. 11 West Seneca East in Section 6 action.

   “Overall, program-wise, it’s just a signature win,” South Park coach Tim Delaney told The Buffalo News. “To beat the A South defending champs and the Section VI runners-up in Class A, it lets us know where we’re at right now.”

   Tyler Mascio was 11-for-17 for 162 yards, including four throws to Brandon Jefferson for 73 yards and a third-quarter TD.

   In Section 5, Brockport made a case for rejoining the Class A rankings after a one-week absence by defeating No. 24 Greece Athena 24-10 despite fumbling the ball away on two of its first three offensive plays.

   Senior Jake Fey ran for 20- and 35-yard touchdown runs in the second half, finishing with 30 carries for 199 yards. football site

He also recovered a fumble and picked off a pass on defense.

   Class AA battle: The first of the weekend's three head-to-heads between ranked Class AA schools ended in a mild surprise at No 24 Guilderland knocked off No. 17 Shenendehowa 29-22.

   QB Frank Gallo (223 yards, three TDs) and receiver Jake Smith worked a 33-yard scoring play with 7:36 to go for the winning margin. Smith caught all three Gallo TD passes and finished with six receptions for 147 yards.

   "Maybe now people will start believing in Guilderland," Gallo told The Times Union. "We're the real deal. We've had momentum from our first game."

   Also noteworthy: Class C No. 13 East Rochester/Gananda topped Class B No. 17 Newark 22-18 as Kendrick Hauser rushed 121 yards and two TDs.

   We'll go out on a limb and say Marique Simkin's 99-yard TD throw to Brandon Hunt tied state and national records as Rochester's University Prep beat Marcus Whitman 42-0. Simkin, a freshman, completed 9 of 16 passes for 274 yards and three TDs.

   Luke Kern went 6-for-6 for 188 yards and three touchdowns as Albertus Magnus beat Palisade Prep 50-14.

   Kevin Mowatt of Central Islip rushed for 361 yards and five TDs on 26 carries to highlight a 64-41 win over West Babylon.

   A 56-8 win over West Seneca West marked Jamestown's fifth straight outing with 50 or more points during a 5-0 start. Jamestown has outscored its opponents 274-102.
