Division champion LHS set to host unbeaten St. Joe's

Non-league grid contest at the Max on Saturday will feature two high-scoring high school football teams.



Last Saturday's showdown at Crosby Field against the Blue Devils in some ways mirrored their season to date with a slow start then slowly starting to gel by halftime, then an all out assault down the stretch.
Lions junior Dan Bronson has already had his share of “breakout performances” at quarterback, but his steady, accurate arm and knowledge of the game and Lockport's spread offense were major contributing factors to the team' success against a perrenial AA North power in Ken West.
Dan went 8-for-14 passing with 255 yards and three touchdowns. The threat of senior James Chambers running the ball and Bronson's ability to get the ball into the hands of not only different players, but the open player, have made the Lions' O one of the most feared in the section.
“(Dan) knew what he had to do. At times he would call plays himself and suggest plays,” coach Bronson said. “He knows what he's seeing and he's familar enough with the offense and confident enough in his ability and in the guys around him, and he knows the guys up front will protect him. If they send too many people, he knows who will be unblocked and has been able to escape pressure.”
Lockport's 36-21 win at Ken West gives them 178 points to date (35.6 points per game) versus 86 against (17.1 ppg). Lockport's season high of 49 came against Niagara Falls (Sept. 22), while their season low of 24 came against Orchard Park on opening day (Sept. 1). 
Dan Bronson has had a plethora of good receivers to throw to, beginning with senior wideouts RD Hillman and Tevye Maslowski. Hillman caught four passes last week for 149 yards, including a 65-yard touchdown), while Maslowski added a TD reception. Both have demonstrated good hands and a willingness to move towards the ball in heavy traffic, rather than wait for the pass to come to them. Chambers and senior running back Mitchell Evans have also caught the ball coming out of the backfield.
