One of the fiercest rivalries in Section V once again lived up to its top billing. Cal-Mum held off a charge from LeRoy in the dying minutes to win 34-29 at home. Both teams finish the regular season 6-1.

The Oatkan Knights continue to be led by their workhorse QB Kurtis Haut. He finished with 248 yards rushing and 3 TDs. Joe Cappotelli also had a strong night on the ground, scoring two touchdowns in the second half to help Cal-Mum grab the lead.

LeRoy took an 18-14 lead right after halftime thanks to 52 yard touchdown from Mike McMullen to John Pierce just 16 seconds into the third quarter. Cappotelli put Cal-Mum back in front on a one yard run midway through the third.

On LeRoy's next possession, Ryan McQuillen brought in a 5-yard slant from McMullen to put the Oatkan Knights in front 26-20 going into the fourth quarter.

Cal-Mum proceeded to move down the field seemingly at will and went in front 27-26 on an 8-yard scramble from Haut.

Midway through the fourth quarter, LeRoy's offense stalled and the Knights failed to convert on a fake punt. Cal-Mum made them pay because on the next play, Cappotelli burst through the middle for a 46-yard touchdown that put the Red Raiders up for good.

LeRoy had chances down the stretch but could not find the endzone again.
