Bronson, Chambers spark Lockport

Lions open division slate with 38-8 win over visiting Hutch Tech.


James Chambers scored four touchdowns and Dan Bronson had a career day passing as Lockport routed visiting Hutch Tech on Saturday,   38-8, in their 2012 Class AA North football opener.
The senior tailback Chambers rushed six times for 84 yards and two touchdowns, then added three catches for 88 yards and two   more scores for LHS (2-1 overall, 1-0 AA North), while the junior quarterback Bronson finished a stellar 14 for 19 passing   for 200 yards and three TDs on a record-setting day at Max D. Lederer Field.
Topping it all off on a day in which Lockport put up points the first five times they had the ball was LHS senior kicker Kyle   Few, whose 47-yard third-quarter field goal (into the wind) tied the school record shared by himself and Charles Shellman.
“Our offensive line really did a great job today. I can’t say enough about how well they played. I had all day to throw and   they gave our backs big holes to run through. Nobody touched me all game,” said Bronson, a sophomore starter a year ago.
“We said we were going to run the ball, but we took what the defense dictated and their pass coverages gave us exactly what   we were looking for. We have a lot of good athletes on this team and I tried to distribute the ball around and get the ball   into their hands so they could make plays.”
Bronson found senior wide receiver RD Hillman wide open down the middle for a 37-yard touchdown in the first quarter, then   hit Chambers in stride with another perfect pass for a 40-yard TD to open the second. Moments later, after senior linebacker   Tyler Dimsey recovered an Engineers fumble, Chambers danced in from 14 yards out to make it 21-0 as Few added the third of   his five extra points on the day.
