In a complete contrast to the F-M debacle, Liverpool's defense would record a second-half shutout, never letting Proctor move the ball with any regularity. Meanwhile, the Warriors tacked on two more TD's, including a 26-yard run by Scott in the third quarter and an eight-yard scoring run by Jajuan Rentas in the final period.l
While that was going on, Cicero-North Syracuse, going for its second win in a row, instead ran into Henninger and lost, 34-6, to the Black Knights at Bragman Stadium to fall to 1-4 on the season.
Perhaps the Northstars' best chance lay in a hope that Henninger was looking ahead to next week Class AA-1 division first-place showdown with CBA, but that was far from the case.
Instead, C-NS trailed 14-0 after one period as the Black Knights' Romero Collier threw a 26-yard scoring pass to Justin McGann and ran four yards for another TD. That deficit grew to 20-0 at halftime as Keisean Scott scored from one yard out.
Collier, overall, was 14-for-21 for 228 yards through the air, most of it going to Scott, who had 152 yards on just eight receptions. The pair connected on a 12-yard scoring pass in the third quarter, and Collier capped off his big night with a 57-yard scoring sprint.
Not until the waning minutes, when reserve quarterback Dominic Forcione found James Soule on a 13-yard scoring pass, did the Northstars get on the board, but it was far too late. C-NS has one more home game in the regular season, meeting West Genesee (3-2, 2-1 league) next Friday at 7 p.m.
