Moriah 41, Tupper Lake 8
TUPPER LAKE - The Vikings scored 34 points in the first half enroute to a 41-8 shellacking of Tupper Lake in Northern Athletic Conference football action Oct. 2.
Senior quarterback Nate Gilbo scampered for the first two Viking scores, then put it in the hands of senior tailback Ron Scholfield who ran for two consecutive TDs.
Scholfield finished with 139 yards in the game.
Gilbo then connected with senior wide out Tom Tesar on a 60-yard pass play at the 7:33 mark in the second quarter and Gilbo capped the evening with a two-yard scamper for his third touchdown of the game. He also went 2-2 for 95 yards through the air.
Because of Moriah's tenacious defense, Tupper Lake's only score came late in the fourth quarter on a two-yard plunge by Kyle Baldwin.
Peru 21, Ticonderoga 6
PERU - Ticonderoga scored first just two minutes into the first quarter on a 61-yard scamper by running back Bryant Austin but failed to find the end zone again ending a three game winning streak Oct. 3 at the Apple Bowl in Peru.
Austin had a season-high game in rushing for the Sentinels with 159 yards on 18 carries. He also had two catches for 16 yards.
Peru scored on three of its first four possessions and the score was 21-6 at the half, but the Ti defense stepped it up in the second half, holding the Indians scoreless.
Sentinels QB Robert Kearns nearly made it interesting at the end of the first half when he dove forward toward the end zone, only to be stuffed by Peru cornerback Connor Keleher as time expired.
Kearns was 5 of 18 on the day for 36 yards.
