The always-dangerous Spencerport rushing attack powered the Rangers to their first win of the season.
Jahyleen Quick ran the ball 18 times for 157 yards and scored three touchdowns, while Amari Mariantetti-Smith ran for 133 yards on just nine carries. 41 of those yards came on a third-quarter touchdown run.
Jack Vickers also reached triple-digits, as he had 126 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown. He also returned an interception for a touchdown and blocked a punt on special teams.
The Rangers led 20-6 at halftime, with Athena’s first-half touchdown coming on a Jacob Strebel 65-yard pass to Zaire Good. Brady Nugent ran for a touchdown in the second half for Athena.
Spencerport (1-3) will try for its second straight win on Friday, September 29th when they travel to the Rochester Community Sports Complex to take on Wilson. Athena (0-4) will host Canandaigua on Saturday, September 30th.
