Class AA: Jamestown - 42, Frontier - 7
Jamestown scored on a 78-yard pass on the second play of the game, which gave momentum to the Red Raiders and the Falcons never recovered. Jake Sisson had his worst game of the season, completing only 44% of his passes, compared to 65.7% entering the game. Yet the Senior was able to throw for 402 yards, 2 TDs and run for 2. The Falcons were resilient throughout the game but 3 turnovers and 6 penalties hurt Tim Myslinski's team from making a comeback. The Red Raiders move on, winning their 10th Title, while the Falcons season ended. At least it was a season to remember for the black and blue Falcons.
Class A: Williamsville North - 21, Sweet Home - 12
Williamsville North scored 2 TDs with Ryan Majewski passing to Kolbe Hughes for a 14-0 1st quarter lead. From then on, the favored Panthers never recovered thanks to an outstanding defense, which only allowed 19 points in 3 games. The defense sparked by the Ames brothers: Isler, Kelly, Becht, Hwang and Attea only allowed 51 rushing yards for the Panthers in the game. The Panthers finally scored a TD at 6:44 of the 3rd quarter and gave up another 6 points with 3:48 left in the game. The loss ended the 69-game win streak for the Panthers against Section VI opponents. The Panthers, however, still haven't lost a regular season game since 2006 (when Williamsville East defeated the Panthers). It was a fantastic run by Sweet Home and a great win by the Spartans, who earned a Sectional Title in their first trip to the Ralph!
Class B: Depew - 28, Alden - 26
In the most entertaining game, Depew defeated Alden 28-26, earning their 2nd Sectional Title. At 6:31 in the 4th quarter, Depew scored to take a 28-12 lead. But Brian Stoldt connected for 2 TDs with 1:32 remaining to cut the lead from 28-26. Stoldt's attempt for a 2-point conversion to tie the game came up inches short. It ended a 39-game Bulldog win streak against Section VI opponents.
Class C: Cleveland Hill - 22, Fredonia - 13
The Golden Eagles scored first on a 2-yard run by Brandon Thomas, who scored 3 TDs and rushed for 114 yards in the Championship. The Hillbillies scored in the 2nd quarter to close the gap, but Cleveland Hill scored twice in the second half to put the game away. The Hillbillies were hurt by 3 turnovers which gave the Golden Eagles short drives for scores.
Class D: Randolph - 35, Maple Grove - 12
Randolph won their 20th consecutive game, defeating long-time rival Maple Grove for the Title. The Thunder Dragons scored first on a Nelson 7-yard run and The Cardinals D Nelson caught a TD pass from Mitch Maycock for the lead at 9:59. The Red Dragons scored again on a Kyle Mayer pass to Jonah Tanner, but on the play the QB was injured and lost for the game. Since Curt Fischer didn't have an adequate backup, his team was unable to generate offense with the Cardinals, accumulating 302 yards on 60 plays (compared to 71 yards on 36 plays.) The Maycock, Doubek & Brown connection gave Randolph its 9th Sectional Title.
Class DD: Frewsburg - 33, Catt./Little Valley - 0
The Bears scored in every quarter, recording 324 yards on offense, compared to 70 yards for the Timberwolves (who had 9 penalties for 127 yards). The Bears defense shut down Justin Forster, who only rushed for 44 yards on 22 carries. The Bears defense led by Haller, Johnson and Steele was outstanding. The win for Terry Gray's team earned the Bears their 2nd Sectional Championship, while the Timberwolves lost for the first time in a Title game.
