The Baldwinsville football team is looking more and more like a possible repeat champion each week, as they hosted Central Square Friday night at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium and blew the game open early, beating the Red Hawks 63-13.
If there was any concern about a possible upset on the B'ville sideline, it was put to rest early as Antonio Peck took the opening kickoff, slipped through Central Square's coverage and went 76 yards for a touchdown.
And B'ville wasn't anywhere near done scoring, as they put up 28 points in the first quarter, and led 49-6 at halftime, thanks largely in part to their big-play ability and Central Square's lack of ball control.
The Red Hawks were forced to punt on their opening possesion, giving the ball right back to B'Ville and their explosive offense and putting themselves in position to play catch up to the superior Bees.
Needing to pass to try and score, the Redhawks looked rusty as they threw multiple interceptions and punted on almost every drive as the Bees defense suffocated their smaller opponent, manhandling Central Square's offensive line and forcing many runs of negative yardage.
On the reverse side, the Redhawks couldn't figure out B'ville's star duo of the night, Tyler Rouse and Ben Paprocki, who ran freely behind their mammoth offensive line.
B'ville's second series of the game was a short one, as Rouse took the handoff and bolted 57 yards up the right sideline and into the end zone for a TD and a 14-0 lead.
On the next two posessions the teams traded turnovers, with Central Square throwing an interception and B'ville fumbling. Central Square's third series resulted in a punt and another TD for B'ville, as Rouse took the return 40 yards for his second TD of the night.
Rouse would have one more TD run of 17 yards before clearing the way for Paprocki, who had TD runs of 1, 13 and 92 yards in addition to a 79 yard kick return for a touchdown.
