It's been a long time since anyone's had Jamestown's number. Orchard Park appears to be that team.

The Quakers have beaten the Red Raiders five out of the last six times, the most recent win coming Saturday, 17-10, in a Federation Division I South game played at Southwestern.

Fullback Sal Palermo scored the winning touchdown, going up the middle on a 1-run run with 20 seconds left in the game. The Quakers started the 94-yard drive with 7:01 left.

Palermo finished with 101 yards on 25 carries. Brian Myers caught a 16-yard TD pass from Jeremy Clark, and Clark kicked a 21-yard field goal.

The Quakers have eliminated Jamestown the past three years in the playoffs.

"Those two playoff games and this game, we drove 90 yards (late) in every single game, so I don't really know if we have their number," said OP coach Gene Tundo. "There's some luck involved. They were three great games. They beat us 16 out of the last 18 before that so I guess they're still up on that part of it."

Jamestown quarterback Craig Swanson completed 8 of 12 passes for 125 yards. Linebacker Aaron Olson had 12 tackles. Running back/linebacker Aaron Leeper missed most of the second half with a possible hyperextended knee.
