Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019: Cardinal Hayes rolls past St. Anthony's 46-17

   Leading off today: Jalen Smith rushed for 254 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as Cardinal Hayes roared to a 46-17 victory over St. Anthony's in a clash of state-ranked Catholic High School Football League squads Saturday.

   Hayes quarterbacks Henry Belin and Jonathan Jenkins threw two touchdown passes apiece for the Cardinals, who bounced back emphatically from the 33-7 loss to Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph Regional in Week 2.

   State record tied: Anthony Cambria made seven catches on his way to tying a state record with 318 receiving yards in Comsewogue's 47-20 victory over Hauppauge.

   Cambria's yardage total matched the performance of Cortland's Qwuhhail Barlow in a 2011 game and eclipsed the Long Island mark of 309 a season ago by Jake Lazzaro of Oceanside. He scored on four of his seven catches.

   Cambria's 90-yard catch-and-run on a throw from Brady Shannon (12 of 16, 250 yards) in the third quarter extended the Comsewogue lead to 35-12.

   Jaden Martinez had 12 carries for 207 yards and three touchdowns, and also recorded an interception in the win.


   Major Class D clash: One day after No. 1 Clymer/Sherman/Panama lost, the third-ranked team in the state's smallest class also fell.

   QB Gabe Macdonald ran 15 times for 123 yards and threw for 152 more with a pair of TDs as No. 9 Batavia Notre Dame defeated Red Jacket 34-14.

   Jed Reese rushed 22 times for 181 yards and two scores.

   More Section 5: The list of serious contenders in Class A in the Rochester area is at least five teams deep and maybe seven.

   Rochester East sent up a reminder that it will stay in the hunt even without all-state selection Seven McGee by edging Greece Arcadia 26-21. Freddie Brock ran 19 times for 167 yards and three TDs.

   St. Joe's wins rivalry game: St. Joseph's fell behind by two score but snapped its 10-game losing streak to Canisius with 25 second-half points for a 32-21 victory.


   Junior Callum Wither (15 of 24, 215 yards) passed for three TDs and Micah Brown rushed for two.

   Wild finish of the day: Whitney Point had to bring in portable lights for its homecoming game but who knew the Golden Eagles would furnish fourth-quarter fireworks, too?

   Whitney Point erased an 18-point deficit in the fourth quarter before Dryden responded with a late touchdown to close out a 40-34 triumph in Section 4 action.

   Dryden QB Brady Rose hit Braedon Libbey (23 carries, 203 yards, 4 touchdowns) with a 15-yard pass with 2:05 left and Libbey added the conversion run to close the scoring.

   Whitney Point's Tanner Kallfelz had led the comeback by scoring three touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

   More big finishes: Arek Hall scored his first career TD on a short run with 1:59 remaining and then sealed Hudson Falls' 32-22 win over Johnstown with an interception return for another score.

    • Down two scores and having just lost a fumble with less than five minutes left, Williamsville North pulled out a 21-20 victory vs. Hamburg.

   Antonio Cedrone passed 70 yards to Conor Murphy and Max Obie kicked the extra point to bring the Spartans within 20-14. After forcing a punt, Williamsville North drove seven plays with Cedrone scoring on a 3-yard run with 1:29 left.

   More big performances: Jack Sharp passed for four of his five touchdowns in the opening quarter as Orchard Park stormed past Niagara-Wheatfield 64-20. Sharp completed 8 of 12 passes for 194 yards and no interceptions.

    • Zac Boyes (9 of 11, 231 yards) passed for five TDs and Kenmore West dominated North Tonawanda 53-0.

    • Traydon Lawrence rushed the ball 31 times for 244 yards and three touchdowns and had an interception for LaSalle in its 32-22 win over Albany.

   Scoreboard: Here's the rundown of scores from Week 3 of the season.
