Blue Devils spoil Lions' Homecoming

Visiting Kenmore West beats Lockport in flag-filled affair, 34-12.



The Lions went to their big scoring threat, senior wide receiver Charlie Sobieraski, to open the second quarter. Sobieraski went up high to snare a TD pass from junior quarterback Tyler Fraass (10 of 30 passing, 191 yards, 2 TDs, INT) that cut the KW lead to 15-6 at the half.
“We had our opportunities in the first half,” said Lions head coach Greg Bronson. “We blew a coverage for them to score their second TD, we had the ball first down on the one yard ine and we went backwards before we even snapped the ball and we had the ball first down inside the 10 and we fumbled the ball the first play. If we execute and get out of our own way and don’t make those mistakes, we could have been up at halftime, but those are the things that have plagued us.”
Despite an outstanding defensive afternoon for Lockport senior lineman Marshall Taylor (4 sacks), the Blue Devils drove in for another score. A 1-yard Price TD run up the gut and another Walker conversion run increased the visitors’ lead to 23-6 after three quarters.
After a surprising and unsuccessful Blue Devils fake punt attempt in their own zone, Sobieraski hauled in another lob pass from Fraass in the corner of the endzone to cut into the Ken West lead and make it 23-12.
But Fron dropped back and calmly found Price streaking wide open down the center of the field and hit him in stride. Price’s 80-yard TD scamper and two-point conversion run by sophomore fullback Jayson Taylor made it 31-12.
Salas rounded out the scoring with a 39-yard field goal as time expired, as the Blue Devils were trying to add points to stay ahead of potential playoff tie-breaking scenarios.
The Lions, who finished with minus 4 yards rushing, need a victory next week to clinch a AA playoff spot. A victory will likely put LHS in the seventh seed position.
