Hornets, Brothers pour on points, move to 5-0

F-M scores 56 in first half at RFA; CBA routs Central Square

Wittig's 70-yard strike to Krizman led to his own one-yard scoring sneak. Paddy Quinlan joined the fun with a 23-yard TD run and, just before the half, F-M notched an eighth touchdown when Wittig found Quinlan from 10 yards out and then made his eighth consecutive extra point.

Following three weeks of tense games against West Genesee, Baldwinsville and Liverpool not decided until the final minutes, F-M was finally able to rest its starters late in this game - something that CBA did for the entire second half after putting Central Square away in a 42-0 first-half blitz.

Salter set the tone, catching a short pass from J.R. Zazzara and turning it into a 57-yard touchdown play early in the first quarter. Minutes later, Zazzara threw his second scoring pass, 33 yards to Aaron Donalson, and Salter made it 21-0 by the end of the period by sprinting 44 yards to his second TD.

During the second quarter, the Brothers did not score an offensive point - and still managed to double its lead, starting with Andre Dowdell returning a punt 63 yards for a TD.

CBA's defense produced a touchdown when Gavin Collins picked off a Red Hawks pass deep in its own territory and returned it 22 yards for six points. Then Salter provided one more highlight when he took another Central Square punt near midfield and brought it back 52 yards for his third TD.

With the starters on the bench, the Brothers added two more touchdowns in the second half, both of them scored by Josh Brown on runs of 10 and 16 yards.

And this leads CBA to next Saturday's Class AA-1 division first-place showdown with Henninger (4-1, 4-0 league) at 1 p.m. at Sunnycrest Field. The Black Knights have won three in a row and are coming off a 34-6 romp over Cicero-North Syracuse.

F-M, meanwhile, heads back home for its last two games of the regular season, starting next Friday when 0-4 Utica Proctor pays a visit for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
