UV-Edmeston picks up first win

Evening Sun Report


UV-Edmeston 7, Spencer-Van Etten 6

NEW BERLIN – UV-Edmeston didn have a lot to cheer about on offense, but a stingy defense that gave up ground grudgingly, and an opportunistic touchdown in the first half was enough to carry to Storm to their first win this season.

Jake Curtis recovered a fumble for UV-E in the first half at the Panthers’ 18. Three plays later, Eric Bennett ran for a 10-yard score, and Jordan Williams’ point-after kick proved the final margin of victory. “We are looking at the win and not at the final statistics,” said UV-Edmeston coach Jack Loeffler. “It doesn’t matter how many yards are gained, you can still win the game.”

It wasn’t as if the Panthers were racking up large chunks of real estate. In spite of dominant field position and a big advantage in total yards (219-90), the visiting club threatened to score just one other time in the game other than its fourth-quarter TD run by Anthony Kline. And after the extra-point to tie the game was missed, S-VE never came close to the go-ahead points. “We were ready to play after last week’s game against Newfield,” Loeffler said. “There are times we could have gotten down, especially after their touchdown, but we shut down the extra point and that was it.”
