Hutch-Tech 14, Hamburg 6: Zach Filipski’s 1-yard run provided the deciding points. Roman West finished with 111 yards rushing. Mike Minotti made 10 tackles for the Engineers.

West Seneca East 57, Lake Shore 0: The Trojans broke the school record for most points in a game with a shutout victory. The previous record was 54 points.

Class B

Depew 38, East Aurora 6: The Wildcats improved to 2-0, but it came at a price. All-star quarterback Anthony Buono left the game in the second quarter with an apparent broken collarbone. Buono got hit as he drove into the end zone on the tail end of a 50-yard TD scramble. At that point he told coach Brian Wilson he felt some discomfort. He came out for his second series, took a hit on a pass play, and on a simple handoff, said he felt a “pop.” Wilson said early estimates are he could be sidelined for 4-5 weeks. “It breaks your heart,” said Wilson. “He’s such a great senior leader, you’re hoping to have that great senior year. It’s a tough blow for him and for us.”

Anthony Turner scored three rushing TDs to finish with 104 yards on 16 carries. He contributed 11 tackles on defense while Dylan Grant added eight.

The defense held the host Purple Eagles to approximately 75 yards of offense. “Defense has been the key, the front four are difficult to get past and our linebacking corps can chase down a lot, they’re fast,” said Burgard coach Jason Kolb. Karl Jones rushed for 118 yards on just five carries. Burgard opened the season with a 12-0 win over Bennett.

Pioneer 10, Olean 7 (OT): Justin Bliss kicked a 19-yard field goal to provide the game-winning points as the Panthers evened their record at 1-1. Bliss also had two tackles for loss, two sacks, a pass deflection and two catches for 75 yards. Olean got the ball first in the OT, but its drive ended abruptly when Kris Riordan intercepted a pass at the 1-yard line on third and goal from the 30. The Huskies were slowed by a couple of penalties. Pioneer’s OT score was set up by a seven-play drive. Junior Tyler Mummery had a breakout game with 223 yards on 38 carries. Sophomore defensive back Nate Tackentien had two interceptions.

Medina 44, Maryvale 14: Quarterback Jason Hellwig threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns and Dan Brown ran for 203 yards and two scores. Kyle Barnes had six pass receptions for 104 yards. Medina moved to 2-0 while Maryvale is 0-2.
