Lakemen trounce Gowanda, 48-0

Slango huge day for Wilson;Newfane can't keep up with Buffalo East, Barker/R-H bows.

GOWANDA —  

Wilson Lakemen head coach Bill Atlas said he felt confident his team could rush the ball in Friday night’s road opener against Gowanda, but the results were even better than he expected.
Senior running back Justin Slango ran for daylight with four touchdowns and fellow senior Chris Reid added two scores and   six extra point kicks, sparking the visiting Lakemen past Gowanda, 48-0, in the Section VI football opener for both schools.
Slango had a career-day with nine rushes for 200 yards and the four TDs. Reid finished with three rushes for 103 yards, two   TDs and was 6-for-7 on his extra-point tries.
Receiving, Lakemen senior Joe Brown caught two passes for 62 yards. Senior Nickolas Bell added a 20-yard touchdown reception   from junior quarterback Tim Walch, who finished 5-for-7 for 88 yards and a score.
“I’ve got nothing bad to say,” coach Atlas said. “I thought we played real well. Going in, we knew we’d be able to run the   ball, but this was above what I expected.”
The Lakemen offense was clicking on all cylinders throughout. Their only punt came on their final possession late in the game   and Slango rocketed it 50 yards.
Defensively, Wilson was led by senior Steve Szuba with nine tackles. Seniors Colin Spatorico and Geoff Lort added eight stops   apiece, while senior Brian Kerwin had seven tackles and a sack.
Also for the Wilson defense, senior Tayler Thilke had two interceptions and junior Kevin Daunce added a fumble recovery

 

Buffalo E. 36, Newfane 6
BUFFALO — The Newfane Panthers’ start to their 2012 football season Friday afternoon wasn’t as hoped. At least they did better   than the scoreboard at the Johnnie B. Wiley Sports Pavilion.
Without a functioning scoreboard for nearly three quarters of play, fans were kept informed as best possible by the public   address announcer. By the time it was functioning, the Panthers trailed 30-0, en route to a 36-6 loss.
