Mid-season AA showdown

Undefeated grid Lions host undefeated Falcons at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Max

LOCKPORT —

The things Lockport was able to do in beating defending state finalist Orchard Park a week ago are the keys once again in Saturday’s Section VI Football Class AA mid-season showdown against visiting Frontier.
Get a quick start.
Don’t turn the ball over.
Adjust defensively.
Head coach Greg Bronson’s Lions (1-0 AA, 2-0 overall) will tackle head coach Tim Myslinski’s Falcons (2-0 AA, 2-0 overall) in a highly-anticipated contest at 2 p.m. Saturday at Max D. Lederer Field.
The Lions are fresh off last Friday night’s 33-27 victory at OP — an impressive road win against the state’s defending finalists from a year ago — and a week one 7-0 victory over visiting Starpoint. The Falcons beat Niagara Falls last week, 24-6 and earned a 38-12 week one victory over Clarence.
“We scored points (last week),” Bronson said. “We had some pretty big plays on offense that got us into the lead and kept us there through the entire game. At the same time, our defense took advantage of opportunities. We forced four turnovers and stopped some of their drives inside the 20 yard line.”
The Falcons will run a quick, option style offense that’s been quite efficient in the first two weeks, producing 48 points. Frontier also features an aggressive, blitzing style defense that has allowed just 18 points combined in two games The Lions have scored 46 points and allowed 27.
Offensively, Bronson praised the efforts of his quarterback, junior Tyler Fraass (7 for 11 passing, 125 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs) in last week’s win, as well as junior running back Nick Hamilton (15 carries, 89 yards, 3 rushing TDs; 2 catches, 48 yards, 1 TD receiving).
“Both Tyler and Nick stepped up,” Bronson said. “Nick scored four touchdowns and Tyler threw two touchdown passes and we didn’t turn the ball over.”
Defensively, Bronson said the Lions got a great game out of senior lineman Marcellus Hinton, who finished with just 1.5 tackles, but paved the way for others to have bigger stat games.
