CBA battles to opening win over Nottingham

Brothers get away from Bulldogs in fourth quarter

— The Brothers return to the Class AA fold - and return to Alibrandi Stadium - Friday night at 6:30 to host Utica Proctor. Led by multi-purpose quarterback Jordan Treen, the Raiders, a Section III semifinalist last fall, squandered a 16-0 lead as it fell to Corcoran 42-30 in its opener.

A day after CBA started, it was Bishop Grimes’ turn, but it ran right into defending Class D champion Westmoreland and took a 55-19 loss to that group of Bulldogs.

For a half, the Cobras did stay within range of Westmoreland. Tyler Carbonaro threw an 18-yard TD pass to Connor Evans in the fist quarter, and went deeper to find Casey Evans for a 63-yard scoring strike in the second quarter.

When Max Weaver returned a fumble 48 yards for six points, Grimes was within nine, 28-19, at the break. Gradually, though, Westmoreland wore the Cobras down, adding two more TDs in each of the last two periods while pitching a defensive shutout, too.

Three different Bulldogs rushed past the century mark as Tim Harrison got 189 yards, Robert Heitzman added 169 yards and Zack Green ran for 108 yards – a total of 466 yards on the ground between them, Green contributing four touchdowns.

Grimes heads east this Saturday and will meet New York Mills for a 1 p.m. kickoff. The Marauders lost its opener to Cooperstown 43-20.
