My Friday night travels took me to Franklinville, New York to catch the battle between Salamanca and the host school
Franklinville/Ellicottville for a rematch of a game played back on April 9th where Franklinville/Ellicottville posted a 7-0 win. Like the first game, this one started with defense ruling the nest. Ezra Stahlman and Amos Whitcomb teamed up to plant
Clayton Rowland for a short loss, with 7:37 left in the opening quarter. With 6:16 left in the quarter, Blake Frank picked up 19 yards when he took in a pass from Logan Frank to give the home team a big first down. Logan Grinols would take in a screen pass from Logan Frank but he was crushed by Trevor Ellis resulting in no yards being gained. The defense of Franklinville/Ellicottville would make the last big play of the quarter when a pass thrown by Lucas Mckenna was tipped then picked off by Grinols. Salamanca would suffer injuries to Tre Turner and Jarod White in the quarter. Turner had 4 tackles on the first Franklinville/Ellicottville, he would come back to play some defense but have no more tackles by my count. White, who would suffer being injured on four occasions kept coming back into the game and finish with seven tackles. I spoke to White after the game and he basically said three of the injuries were from bad footing on a bad playing surface, while his first was due to a good play from a block by the offensive player.
Franklinville/Ellicottville would get a nice catch from Blake Frank to pick up 12-yards. The drive would end on a sweep to the left by Logan Frank for a 26-yard touchdown. Frank, who I learned from one of his coaches will be playing at Mercyhurst University next season as a tightend. A muffed snap kept this a 6-0 game, with 11:25 left in the half. Salamanca would get a 24-yard catch by Harley Hoag. The drive fizzled out a short time later when Lucas Marsh made a nice pick On the ensuing drive Logan Frank scored on a 2-yard run to make this a 12-0 game, a Frank to Grinols two-point conversion pass made this a 14-0 game, with 7:06 left in the half. Frank would end the scoring for the home team when he lofted a pass to Clayton Rowland for the 36-yard touchdown. The PAT from Bryce Butler gave us the 21-0 score, with 3:02 showing on the clock. The difference-maker in this game was Logan Frank, who seemed to be correct on every decision he had to make.
The third quarter had just 5:14 left when Hoag picked off a Frank pass. After the pick, Salamanca would get a 35-yard touchdown run from Trevor Ellis/ Ellis broke two tackles on his way into the end zone. Jarrett Pond made this a 21-7 game, with 4:34 left in the quarter. A little over a minute later Carter Stoltz would recover a fumble by Lucas Marsh after Marsh made a nice catch. The rest of the game would be all defense for the most part other than a 32-yard run from Logan Frank.
