Rochester Adams Highlanders 45
Rochester Stoney Creek Cougars 7

1Q

Stoney Creek started their first possession on their 20. On first down, DT Cole Mitchell and LB Garret Lineberger brought QB pressure right up the middle forcing an early throw; incomplete. On 2nd down, LB Stephen Roncelli met the ball carrier first and got help from LB Ryan Rifenberg to finish off a 1 yard TFL. The 3rd-and-11 pass was on target; QB Peyton Youngblood found receiver Nate Davis on a deep-in route for 23 yards to move the sticks to the 43. It was Youngblood to Davis on a short-out on the Cougar sideline on the next play, good for 7 yards. On 2nd-and-3, Youngblood got pressured by Rifenberg off the edge and took a hit as he released the ball to avoid a sack; incomplete. The next pass attempt was incomplete after DE Connor Hess applied pressure; Adams had good coverage of the Cougar slot back in the middle seam, but pass interference was the call. First down Stoney Creek at the Highlander 35. The next play, Youngblood went deep down the left sideline with a perfect pass to the receiver who was well covered. WR Adam Hilton made a nice catch and brought it in for the 35 yard score. The PAT was good and Stoney Creek had a 7-0 lead. The Senior Night home crowd Cougar faithful went crazy. It would be the highpoint of their night.

RB Chase Kareta returned the kickoff to the 32. Roncelli got the first carry up the middle for 2 yards. Roncelli got the carry again on 2nd down and went between the wall created by the down block of standout left tackle Hunter Drobnich, and the clear-out block of Kareta, picking up 10 yards and a first down to the 44. Roncelli took it up the gut for 4 on first down. Wing back Cole Patritto carried next and he sliced for 8 yards around left tackle behind Drobnich and guard Jarred McPherson for another first down to the Stoney Creek 44. Kareta got the handoff going wide right towards the Adams sideline. He outran the defense to the edge, got a downfield block from WR Vincent Gray, and sped 38 yards down to the Cougar’s 6 yard line to set up first and goal. QB Zach Soldan scored on a keeper on the next play, but a chop block was called. It only delayed the TD by a play, as Roncelli got the handoff on the inside trap play for the TD run. Center Cal Bowers, McPherson, and guard Cole Mitchell all threw key blocks to get Roncelli to the secondary, and no defender wanted to get in front of that moving truck. Roncelli glided into the north end zone from 20 yards out to open up the Highlander assault. Ben Patton drilled the PAT, and it was 7-7.

The Cougars again started from their 20. QB Youngblood, who displayed an accurate throwing early on, found his slot receiver on a middle slant against tight coverage. Ben Dargel caught it in stride and got into Highlander territory before CB Ben Luci tripped him up at the Adams 46. Youngblood was almost right on target again on the next play as he put it inches long off the streaking Nate Davis’s fingertips down the home sideline at the 15. Chase Kareta was in coverage and hit Davis immediately after the ball arrived; incomplete. 2nd-and-10 from the 46. They tried throwing a delayed release shallow cross to RB Joardan Tungate, but Garret Lineberger had coverage underneath and finesse pass floated long. On 3rd-and-10 Hess and Mitchell brought pressure and the deep-out pass was long; Nico Jackson and Kareta on the coverage.

Adams started at the 13 after a good punt. Roncelli got 2 up the middle. Then Cole Patritto picked up 4. On 3rd-and-4, the Cougar crowd was making some noise looking for a big stop. Soldan ran read option left ball faked to Roncelli, who sold it; he got tacked by 4 defenders. Soldan pulled it and shot through an expressway-sized lane created by the bull-dozing Drobnich who buried the outside linebacker and Kareta who down-blocked the middle backer. Soldan planted his foot, shot past the safety, and he was off to the races down the middle of the field as the home crowd audibly groaned. Cougar CB Noah Catallo was able to run Soldan down at the 6. 75 yard run by the HIghlander dual threat QB Zach Soldan. On first and goal from the 6, Roncelli took it up the middle to the 4. Then Chase Kareta took it between the punishing blocks of right tackle Justin Leonard and guard Cole Mitchell for the 4 yard touchdown run. Patton converted. 14-7.

First down from their 20 for Stoney Creek. LB Cameron Kelly contained the sweep and made a 1 yard tackle for loss with assistance from Conner Hess. An attempted slant pass to Dargel fell incomplete to set up 3rd-and-11. Vincent Gray came off his man to made a leaping deflection of the 3rd down pass to force the 3 and out. Stoney Creek punted it away.

Highlanders ball on their 44. On first down, left tackle Drobnich and guard Jarred McPherson buried the tackle inside, guard Reed Vogt pulled across and destroyed the outside linebacker, and the speedy Cole Patritto shot through the lane. Patritto gashed the Cougars for 25 yards and the chains were moved into their side of the field down to the 31. Kareta got it next around the right, put a stiff-arm pancake on an overmatched defensive back, and got 9 yards. Soldan was on target for Gray in the end zone on the fade pass the next play, but he couldn’t hold on to it. On third and short, Stephen Roncelli got it up the middle on a play designed for the B gap, but after finding that hole clogged, he broke it to out to the right. His speed got him to the edge and his power got him in. He got a great block from Vincent Gray on the corner, then trucked the poor lone defender in his way at the 6 yard line. Roncelli stomped his way into the north end zone at Cougar stadium and sent the visiting stands to their feet. 20-7 Highlanders after the PAT was wide right.

A penalty on the kickoff started the Cougars at their 6. Incomplete down the left sideline. Ben Luci with good coverage. They tried the short crossing route to the running back, but Kelly and Lineberger had it covered; incomplete. Youngblood found Hilton down the visitors side line on a double move on 3rd and long for 21 yards to move the chains up to the 27. Cole Mitchell shot into the backfield to chop down the ball carrier for a 3 yard TFL. Stoney Creek rushed it 3 times for negative 5 yards in the first quarter. It was Mitchell along with DE Reed Vogt applying QB pressure on the second down pass attempt which had to be thrown early to avoid a sack. On 3rd-and-13 Ryan Rifenberg hit Youngblood as threw incomplete, and the Cougars had to punt.

Adams took it on their 35. Soldan went deep down the seam to Patritto into good coverage, and the Cougar’s Jericho Barr-Redmond made the interception to give it back to the Cougars.

Stoney Creek scrimmaged from their 25. On first down Youngblood had to alter his throw as Cole Mitchell was bearing down on him, and Chase Kareta stepped in front of Davis for the second interception in consecutive plays. Highlander ball going back the other way.

The Highlanders started on the Stoney Creek 45. Kareta exploited the blocks of Leonard, Vogt, and McPherson for 8 yards around right tackle on the last play of the opening quarter.

Soldan dropped back and threw it just long over Ben Luci on a go-route. A 15 yard penalty moved Adams back to their 48. On 2nd-and-17, Patritto toted it for 9 yards. On 3rd-and-8, Soldan was on target to Gray on a stop route, and he turned it up for 7 yards to set up 4th-and-1. Soldan ran read-option left and kept it. Only a diving tackle by CB Noah Catello saved a touchdown as Soldan picked up 13 yards to move the sticks down to the 23. Chase Kareta then zipped around right end on a 18 yard jaunt down to the 5. Roncelli was stopped for no gain, then he got 3 but Adams was flagged for personal foul and moved back to the 16. Soldan tried Gray on a 50-50 ball in the back corner on 3rd and goal from the 16, but it was well defended by Barr-Redmond; incomplete. The FG attempt was no good and Stoney Creek took over.

On first down from their 20, Youngblood got it to Barr-Redmon on a shallow cross and he took it for 17 before Jackson and Kareta made the stop. The next pass was complete, but for no gain after Luci made the hit on Hilton right away. He looked for Nate Davis down the left side, but safety Chase Kareta was again in the right spot, he jumped in front for his second interception in as many possessions to give it back to Adams.

1st down on their 32 for the Highlanders. Patritto got thrown for a 2 yard loss on first down, but Kareta got 13 on second down around right tackle to move the chains to the 43. Soldan kept it for 6 on a read-option left, and Patritto got one to set up 3rd-and-3 at midfield. Soldan hit Gray on the stop route and he found room up the seam for 16 yards and a first down at the Cougar 34. Soldan ran read-option right for 8, then lost 1 on the next play. Soldan tried to hit Gray on a deep route but it was broken up on a nice play by Cougar DB Vincent Kuczaj. Roncelli got tripped up trying to go around left tackle and appeared to extend the ball to the 24 before his knees hit the ground. But the ball was spotted at the 25 and the Cougars took over.

The Cougars took over on their 25. QB Youngblood was almost sacked by Reed Vogt and Conner Hess, but somehow got a late hand-off to a back who Cameron Kelly tackled in the backfield for an 8 yard loss. Then they passed incomplete looking for Davis who was blanketed by Jackson.

Ferris got thrown for a loss of 3 on the next play as he tried to go read-option right. The third down pass was a bit high intended for Collin Weeks on a deep post to set up 4th-and-8. Ferris found Anthony Patritto on a nice 10 yard out pattern on the left to move the chains down to the 24. Ferris just missed a wide open Patritto off play action on first down, then Patritto was thrown for a 5 yard loss on second down.
