Dansville 32, Geneseo 0
DANSVILLE — It was one of those so close scenarios for the Dansville Juniors who had lost the week before in a come-from-behind effort against Bath. As fate would have it, the Rams managed to edge the Mustangs out in their bid to play for the southern conference in the CYFL championship on Sunday (Oct. 28) in Leroy against the Cal-Mum juniors who won the northern divisional title.

Well, Dansville got 1 out of 2. The Mustangs won, but so did Bath.

Our stingy defense tallied over 500 tackles, forced 11 fumbles, recovered 13 fumbles, and had 2 interceptions.
