UV-Edmeston 47, Livingston Manor-Roscoe 8
NEW BERLIN – Unadilla Valley-Edmeston came out of its season-long offensive funk in a big way winning its second game of the season Friday night against Section IX’s Livingston Manor-Roscoe.
Following a scoreless first quarter in which the visiting team drove for an initial score, the Storm put up nearly as many points in one stanza as it had in the first four games.
Mason Wyman scored on two short TD runs, threw an 18-yard TD pass to Jay Lloyd, and Tom Giordano rushed for the first of his three scores turning the contest 180 degrees. The 28 second-quarter points were just one point short of the 29 scored in four games while compiling a 1-3 mark.
“When they scored on the opening kickoff, that sent us a wake-up call,” said UV-Edmeston coach Jack Loeffler. “That first drive was pretty much all the offense they had, and they didn’t cross midfield in the second half.”
Giordano added scoring runs of 18, and two yards in the second half on his way to a season-high 95 yards rushing. Matt Harrington galloped 44 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, his first career varsity touchdown. The Storm finished with 308 yards of offense, far and away their most complete offensive performance. “They had some small kids and young kids up front, so we thought we could attack up the middle with our running game,” Loeffler said. “Our defense has been doing the job the last few games, and the message to the offense this week was that they needed to get the ball into the endzone. We haven’t been doing that until this game.”
The Storm host Southern Springs Saturday afternoon.
