Road ends for Depew and Cleve Hill Eagles can't slow LeRoy

Cleveland Hill's Eagles ran into an offensive buzzsaw here Saturday in the Class C Far West Regional at PAETEC Park.

LeRoy's unbeaten Oatkan Knights rolled to a 41-point third quarter lead and smothered the Eagles, 47-20.

When Travis Fenstermaker, LeRoy's junior quarterback, wasn't passing for touchdowns, he was gashing Cleveland Hill for big gains on runs out of the shotgun formation. Fenstermaker, the offensive MVP of the game, threw for three touchdowns and ran for 92 yards on 10 carries to lead LeRoy to its 11th win of the season. Brady Bonacquisti ran for two scores and was on the receiving end of a Fenstermaker pass for another.

Cleveland Hill scored on three Rhakeem Wiggins passes in the fourth quarter.

The Eagles played without their leading running back, junior Peter Westbrooks, who was diagnosed with mononucleosis last week.

"To their credit, our guys kept hustling until the end," said Cleveland Hill coach Glen Graham. "That's a heckuva team they [LeRoy] have over there. We looked at all their games and we knew they would be balanced. That was no surprise."

The Eagles were outgained, 450-224, as Fenstermaker completed 9 of 14 for 159 yards. Ian Humphrey carried 21 times for 112 yards to lead the Knights on the ground.

Wiggins completed 14 of 26 passes for 163 yards, but it took the junior quarterback a while to settle down. By then it was too late.

Fred McIntosh ran 13 times for 51 yards for the Eagles while Kevin Washington caught eight passes for 63 yards and two scores. Joe Sanders had the other Cleveland Hill touchdown, a 44-yard reception.
