CBA football gets to fifth straight AA final

Brothers get 61 points, put away Liverpool in semifinal

— The Warriors failed to score again until midway through the fourth quarter. During that span, the Brothers scored 27 points and held a 55-14 lead. Zazzara had a hand in all four touchdowns, throwing 20 yards to Donalson for one score and running eight yards for another during the third period.

“In the second quarter, we had to make our adjustments,” Zazzara said. “We countered what they were doing and we put up points.”

Zazzara finished the day passing for 219 yards on eight-for-13 attempts, also rushing 11 times for 66 yards and two touchdowns.

“Buffalo stole a great one,” Casamento said, as Zazzara verbally committed to playing football for the University of Buffalo next year.

Liverpool did score twice in the fourth quarter to slightly lessen the deficit as Capoto threw a 41-yard TD pass to James Wade and a 16-yard scoring strike to Ben Terzini.

But it was CBA moving on to the Carrier Dome to face Henninger next Saturday at 3 p.m. for the sectional Class AA title. The Black Knights knocked off previously unbeaten Fayetteville-Manlius 44-14 in the other semifinal on Saturday, as Romero Collier threw four TD passes and ran for another score.

Henninger, of course, gave CBA its biggest scare of the season on Oct. 12 at Sunnycrest Field, leading into the fourth quarter before the Brothers pulled it out 33-20. Back then, CBA anticipated that it might face Henninger again. Their forecast, as it turned out, proved accurate.
