The state's #1 high school football team played like the cream of the crop in the Class AA quarterfinal. Aquinas made quick work of Webster Thomas, winning 41-7 at home on a rainy Friday night.

Aquinas QB Jake Zembiec threw for four touchdowns and 136 yards to move the Little Irish to 8-0 this season. Three of Zembiec's TDs came in the second quarter. Donato Clemente had a nice night as well, scoring a touchdown on the ground and one through the air in the first half. AQ's senior running back Luch Pietropaolo reached the end zone at the end of the first quarter. It was his only score of the night and finished with 75 yards rushing.

(1)Aquinas will take on the winner of the (4)Pittsford and (5)East who play Saturday afternoon at 3:00 from Pittsford Sutherland.
