Leading off today:
D'Jae Perry's second long touchdown run of the second half provided the key blow as Buffalo Bennett
upset No. 1 Lancaster 42-35 in Section 6 Class AA football action Thursday at All High Stadium.
Perry's 60-yard burst to cap his 274-yard night (on 13 carries) and a 4-yard TD run by Aaron Smith with a minute to go and Bennett already ahead 36-35 completed the win as No. 28 Bennett overcame 19 penalties -- four of which negate TDs -- and knocked off the two-time defending sectional champions.
"Four touchdowns called back and we still found a way to win," Tigers coach Steve McDuffie said. "I'm so proud of these kids. First off glory goes to the good man above. The football gods seem to be with us. But these kids are resilient. They work their tails off every day. They mustered up enough just to keep going and keep playing."
Bennett scored the contest's final 21 points beginning with Semaj Clemons' 6-yard TD run with 2:30 left in the third quarter.
Perry had scored on a 52-yard run earlier in the half, but Lancaster's Shawn Davis took the ensuing kickoff 85 yards for a TD.
Lancaster quarterback Jason Mansell threw for four touchdowns in the loss.
Ludden topples F-P: Rob Sexton converted a Michael Gaughan corner kick late in the first overtime to give Bishop Ludden a 1-0 boys soccer victory over previously unbeaten Fabius-Pompey, ranked second in the state in Class D.
Goalkeeper Josh Bianchi made eight saves for the shutout.
