Tiger gridders claim first victory

Medina Journal-Register — PEMBROKE — Snapping a season opening two game losing streak, the Lyndonville Tigers downed the Western New York Dragons 22-8 Saturday in a Northeastern Football Alliance contest at the Pembroke Town Park.

Touchdowns by Clay Johnson, Gary LeFrois and Rob Williams spearheaded the Lyndonville attack.

The Tigers defense unit likewise had a big day forcing six Dragon turnovers including two interceptions and a fumble recovery by AJ Cleveland, two fumble recoveries by Adam Hausfelder and an interception by Brad Ralph. Jon Ostrander also chipped in with a sack.

Lyndonville jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead on a 24 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Denver Mackintosh to LeFrois capping the Tigers game opening drive.

The Dragon did answer back with a short touchdown run and a two-point conversion to grab what proved to be a short lived 8-6 lead.

Lyndonville pulled back into an 8-8 tie early in the second quarter with a safety. The Tigers then capitalized on a Cleveland fumble recovery late in the quarter to score the go-ahead touchdown. Mackintosh competed passes of 16 yards to Williams and eight yards to Dereck Adams before Johnson broke loose on a 10 yard touchdown run to put the Tigers back on top to stay at 14-8.

The Tigers nearly had another score earlier in the quarter driving to the Dragons one yard line after Mackintosh had a big 28 yard gain. However, a busted play resulted in a 15 yard loss ending the scoring threat.

Cleveland stopped the Dragons last drive of the half with a pass interception.

Lyndonville upped the advantage to 22-8 in the third quarter on a 22 yard touchdown run by Williams as Mackintosh hooked up with LeFrois for the two-point conversion pass completion. That same combination of Mackintosh to LeFrois also connected for a big 40 yard pass completion to open the drive quickly putting the Tigers in scoring position.
