WELLSVILLE — Sunday's Week 4 Community Youth Football match-up between Wellsville and Dansville turned into a lopsided affair in Allegany County.
Coach Bob Sick's Dansville "Juniors" saw six different players find the end zone while the defense pitched a shutout in a 38-0 victory over Wellsville. With that win the red & black improve to 4-0. Dansville had a fine blend of effectively efficient offense and a stingy defense which made it hard for the Lions to get anything going consistently.
Coach Sick observed, "Our defense was outstanding again as we managed to create two turnovers that would lead to scores on the offensive end."
A Peter Caldwell touchdown got things started for Dansville and Mason Forrester ran in with the point-after, putting the red & black in front. Just before the half Clayton Rigdon burst into the end zone to extend the Mustang lead at the intermission.
Early in the second half the horses continued to run away from Wellsville as Mason Forrester plowed in for another touchdown while Ryan Frazier scored the conversion. A Lions turnover fueled Alex Madison's rushing touchdown with Mason Forrester again scoring the conversion. Prior to the final gun Alex Madison broke loose on a 60 yard rumble for a TD Devin Schafer tacked on the PAT to complete the offensive picture.
Alex Madison finished with 86 yards and two TDs, followed closely by Clayton Rigdon with 84 yards and a TD. Peter Caldwell had 55 yards and a TD Devin Schafer had 47 yards with a PAT. Mason Forrester added 16 yards, a TD and two PAT. Ryan Frazier gained 3 yards with a PAT.
