Daniel Richardson finds the endzone after a 60-yard sprint. Ian Thrasher would secure the extra point for the Bears. Wyatt Delorme, Ian Thrasher and Daniel Richardson coordinated the Bears offense and would break tackles to get a Golden Bear first down.
Defensively for the bears, Richardson would make a SportsCenter top 10 one-handed interception to give the Bears the ball back at the end of the first quarter. In the second half, the D-Line posed a threat with Noah Friot, Adyen Ashlaw and Paker Hurlbut breaking up plays in the backfield for the Massena offense. Ashlaw and Friot would share three sacks each for the Bears. Thrasher, Delorme and Richardson led the bears in tackles. Massena would kick the extra point for the win as the Bears fell short 8-7 Thursday evening at home.
Next the Bears travel to Potsdam for the Route 11 Rivalry game of the week under the lights.
“We started off flat, but I am extremely proud on how the boys flipped the switch in the second half and never gave up,” said Coach Rico Dobbs. “We saw some things we need to fix and look forward to playing our rivals next Thursday under the lights.”
“We told the boys all week, life happens, and we choose how we react to it,” Coach Grant added. “We had a slow first half, and we reminded them that they had a choice to make. They chose to respond with heart and grit. I couldn’t be more proud of how they came out in the second half. On to Potsdam.”
