LOCKPORT —

“Marcellus did tremendous job inside against one of the best offensive lines in the section,” Bronson said. “OP has four returning starters from their state finalist team and Marcellus did a great job inside taking care of blockers by forcing them to double on him.”
Bronson also praised the efforts of LHS sophomore linebacker D’Andre Jenkins, who had two interceptions and junior Zachary Myles, who deflected a couple of passes, including one that led to Jenkins’ 89-yard INT return that set up a Lions’ TD.
Senior Malik Harden led LHS last week with seven tackles. The hitman Mo Townsend had five-and-a-half stops and fellow senior Deshaun Williams added five tackles. Seniors Marshall Taylor and Josiah Chandler had four-and-a-half tackles each.
Continuing his outstanding play on both sides of the ball was Townsend, who added four catches for 67 yards. Playing his second straight solid game at wide receiver, lanky, sure-handed senior Charlie Sobieraski also hauled in a big catch, a 10-yard TD pass from Fraass, giving him three receptions on the young season.
“Mo was a very effective power runner and he’s a reliable target through the air,” Bronson said. “He shows up in situations where Tyler’s under pressure and presents himself and makes some pretty tough catches when the ball’s not on target. He’s very tough and got some important yards for us in numerous critical situations, especially when we were trying to take time off the clock and they were becoming more aggressive. Mo was able to power his way through.”
Bronson said the quicker his team can adjust to the speed and precision of the Frontier option offense, the better off they’ll be.
“It’s tough to replicate at our practices the precision and the speed in which they run their offense,” Bronson said. “We have to find a way to get up to speed as quickly as possible. It may take a couple of possessions or more to see the variety of plays they run, how they’re running them, where and the speed.
“If we can keep ourselves from falling behind by two or three scores early, then we’ll be able to settle down and adjust to what they’re doing. But if you get behind early, you’re scrambling and you’re pressing on offense and things could become more difficult.”
