VVS kept answering, though, with a potent passing game. Mautner threw 46 yards to Curtis for one TD, then hit Guider on a 45-yard scoring strike. As a capper, Mautner hit Aaron Owens on an eight-yard TD pass just three seconds before halftime to make it 32-14 at the break.
Though it didn't need any more points, VVS gained a cushion with more big plays, as Mautner threw his fourth TD pass, a 61-yard strike to Curtis, and Way found another big hole for a 55-yard TD run in the late going.
Battling all the way to the end, Skaneateles got TD runs from McQuiggan and Seth Weiss in the fourth quarter - but the deficit was too big to overcome.
In a strange twist, VVS plays on that exact same field this Friday night - against Marcellus, who toppled Chittenango 18-6 in its opener at the Carrier Dome. with Mautner and the Mustangs' highly-touted Will Fiacchi present, there's bound to be a lot of passing.
Meanwhile, Skaneateles is set to host South Jefferson, who lost its first game of the season 25-6 to Watertown - if the turf is ready.
