WARSAW —Dansville's football season came to a screeching halt on Friday night in Tigertown where third-seeded Let-Saw was too much for the sixth-seeded Mustangs.

Let-Saw showed why they're the defending Class C Sectional Champions, and there's every reason to think they may repeat. The red-orange & black mustered up a 24-0 lead at the half and tacked on a TD and a field goal late to finish the job to the tune of 33-0 in Warsaw.

It was a wet, damp and dismal night on the turf with the temperature dipping into the 30's by the end of the evening. Dansville coach Rich Welch's red & black squad opened by attempting to recover an on-sides kick. The effort went for nought as the Indians (or Tigers) would recover and start their first offensive drive at their own 47 yard line. The home team would effectively move the ball downfield picking up a few first downs along the way. When Let-Saw got into the "red zone" then would score on a 13 yard run by C.J. Hallopeter putting the 3-seed in front for good. Kicker Hunter Elliott split the uprights with 7:58 left in the first and it was quickly 7-0.

It looked like the Mustangs would make their move in their initial offensive series. They "rolled the dice" and went on a 4th & 1 on their own 43 against a tough Let-Saw defense and got it! Unfortunately, a couple plays later Dansville left the football on the carpet and Let-Saw's Mason Johnson recovered at mid-field. This would give the Dansville "D" a chance to step-up.

After coach Justin Mann's club moved the ball down to the Mustang 18, the drive stalled. However, Let-Saw is one of those teams who lays claim to a "secret weapon" called "a kicker" that can put points on the board even when the DON'T get into the end zone. Junior Hunter Elliott would boot a 32 yard field goal to expand the lead to 10-0 as Let-Saw was off and running the rest of the way. 

Let-Saw (7-1) takes on Attica on Saturday in the Class C semifinals. Dansville finishes the season at 4-4.

Tanner Dettman led the Mustangs in the finale with 13 carries for 53 yards while Ryan Carnevale ran 11 times for 29 yards. Elliot Mapes had one catch for 13 yards.
