Kenmore West hangs tough with Orchard Park in playoff loss


Tonawanda News — The Blue Devils didn’t go away as Ford scored on a 6-yard run and then Fron found Greg Howell with a 12-yard touchdown pass to pull West to within 42-25.

Orchard Park’s Chris Sanfilippo intercepted Fron and took it to the end zone from 30 yards out with three minutes left to play.

West closed out the scoring when Fron hooked up with Trent White on a 9-yard TD with a minute left.

“I was impressed with how their team played hard through the whole game,” Tundo said. “They never quit.”

Orchard Park averaged 39.1 points per game during the season, and the Quakers’ only loss was a 35-28 setback to Jamestown in week six.

Orchard Park (7-1) will meet the winner of Saturday’s contest between Lockport (5-2) and Clarence (4-3) in next week’s Class AA semifinals.
