Leading off today:
Alton Ingram ran for 224 yards and three touchdowns to lead a Dunkirk
offense that gashed Cheektowaga for 421 rushing yards and a 46-35 victory Saturday in the Section 6 Class B football final at New Era Field.
Cheektowaga is ranked second and Dunkirk 20th this week by the New York State Sportswriters Association.
Dunkirk clinched the win with a 63-yard scoring drive that took 6:59 off the clock late in the fourth quarter.
The Marauders have won eight straight games since starting the season with a pair of losses.
50-0 entering quarterfinals: The top-seeded team in each Section 5 class won over the weekend. The Rochester/Finger Lakes area will send five unbeaten teams to New Era Field for next weekend's NYSPHSAA quarterfinals.
In Class AA, top-ranked Victor downed No. 4 Pittsford 23-7 as junior Andrew Russell carried 10 times for 114 yards. His wildcard formation carry in the third quarter went for 79 yards and a touchdown for a 21-7 lead.
In Class B, Jerry Reinhart threw for 175 yards and two TDs, including a 74-yarder to Ray Leach as No. 6 Batavia overpowered 11th-ranked Hornell 40-21. Reinhart also had 106 yards on the ground, just behind the 108 from Chandler Baker.
In Class C, fifth-ranked Bishop Kearney outslugged No. 3 East Rochester/Gananda 36-34. Dahmir Pross rushed 35 times for 281 yards and carried for the go-ahead TD midway through the fourth quarter.
More Class B: Top-ranked Chenango Forks earned a fifth straight Section 4 championship, beating No. 23 Windsor 32-13 by grinding out three long scoring drives in the first half.
L.J. Watson still rushed for 138 yards on 25 carries and scored three first-half touchdowns. He ran for a school-record 307 yards when Forks defeated Windsor 40-21 in Week 6.
• Thomas Browne blocked a punt to set up the go-ahead TD in No. 7 Pleasantville's 28-21 win over No. 8 Westlake in the Section 1 final. Three plays after Browne's play, Jack Howe threw a 9-yard scoring pass to Brian Reda to get the Panthers on track for the second title in four years.
More Class AA: John Petrucci passed 17 yards to Devin Young on the second overtime down as Binghamton upset No. 20 Elmira 36-28 for the Section 4 championship.
Petrucci and Young also connected on the conversion and then the Binghamton defense held the Express to one net yard on four downs to seal the win.
Eric Fortner rushed 24 times for 140 yards, including a 4-yard scoring rush that gave the Patriots a 28-20 lead with 3:43 remaining.
• Chris Patterson's 1-yard TD run with 7:26 remaining carried No. 15 Newburgh past No. 17 Monroe-Woodbury 17-14 for the Section 9 crown.
M-W, which held Newburgh to 193 yards of offense, had taken a 14-10 lead when running back Johnny Bauer (171 yards on 23 carries) turned an off-tackle run into a 76-yard TD with 11:40 left.
• New Rochelle has the first-round bye in the NYSPHSAA quarterfinals next week, but you almost wonder whether the Huguenots would rather keep playing after a 41-13 win over Scarsdale in Section 1.
Junior Jonathan Saddler threw three touchdown passes and registered a sack. Junior Jared Baron had 130 yards
