Tiger gridders slay Dragons

Medina Journal-Register — PEMBROKE - Capping off the regular season on a high note, the Lyndonville Tigers blanked the Western New York Dragons 32-0 Saturday in a Northeastern Football Alliance contest.

Rob Williams ran for three touchdowns, Clay Johnson one and quarterback Matt Mackintosh completed a long scoring pass to Gary LeFrois to spearhead the attack for Lyndonville which now takes an 8-2 record into the upcoming playoffs.

Lyndonville grabbed an early 6-0 lead as Williams scored on an 18 yard run to cap Lyndonville’s first drive.

However, it remained a tight 6-0 contest for most of the rest of a turnover filled first half until Mackintosh and LeFrois hooked up for a 47 yard touchdown pass play with just 1:15 remaining in the second quarter to make it 12-0.

Looking to capitalize on Tiger turnovers, the Dragons had three good scoring chances deep in Lyndonville territory in the first half but each time the Tigers defense came up big. Interceptions by LeFrois and Donnell Bennett stopped two of those threats as Brooks Boyle ended the other with a clutch fourth down tackle inside the Lyndonville 10 yard line.

The Tigers finally broke the game open in the third quarter on touchdown runs by Williams of six and 10 yards. 

A 22 yard run by Derrick Adams highlighted the first drive while Williams had a 20 yard pick-up and Mackintosh and Johnson 15 yard carries on the second drive.

Mackintosh also connected with Adams for a two-point conversion pass after the second score.

Johnson rounded out the Tigers scoring with a one yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
