A pair of Class A North powers cruised, a Harvard Cup unbeaten fell and St. Francis finally got its first win Saturday.
Both Sweet Home and Grand Island, who finished 1-2 respectively, in Class A North, scored Section VI quarterfinal wins to complete the Class A final four.
Next weekend, Sweet Home will host West Seneca East while Grand Island will travel to Iroquois.
Sweet Home 25, Amherst 0: Deshanaro Morris carried 19 times for 83 yards and a touchdown while Casey Kacz ran for one and threw for another during a workman-like win for the Panthers (8-0). Kacz carried seven times for 73 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The senior was 5 for 11 for 69 yards, including a 24-yard pass to Brandon Hudson in the fourth.
Grand Island 22, Cheektowaga 6: A wet, chilly day kept the Vikings from going to the air often, but Eddie Weiser (16 carries, 89 yards, touchdown) and Andy Lalonde (20 carries, 55 yards) helped them grind it out. “We figured we’d have to win ugly today if we won,” said Grand Island coach Dean Santorio. Alex Neutz had a 78-yard kickoff return to start the second half to put GI up, 22-0. Neutz also had a 18-yard TD catch from Joe Oliverio (3 for 8, 29 yards). Lalonde had 11 tackles and Brett Dlugosz had nine.
