Canandaigua 31, Spencerport 13
The Rangers kept things interesting late into the third quarter, but the Braves had too much firepower topping Spencerport in a battle of unbeatens.
After each team opened with field goals on their first possession of the game, Jaxon Grant took a pass from Bryan Boldrin to the four-yard line to set up the Braves in scoring position. On third down, they would go into their bag of tricks for a “Philly Philly-esque” touchdown as Grant tossed it to Boldrin for a score.
The Rangers answered as Cameron Mesh flicked it over to Brenten Sheffield for a 12-yard score to make it 10-10 at the half.
After a long 71-yard punt return by Elliot Morgan, Boldrin kept it himself for a 2-yard touchdown for a 17-10 lead.
Spencerport could only muster up a field goal on their next drive, and Canandaigua put it away on a 65-yard score by Eric Platten from Boldrin early in the 4th quarter. Ryan Gavette added the exclamation point for a final score of 31-13.
The two teams are likely to meet in the Class A2 sectional championship later this year.
