CITY OF TONAWANDA —
“We put it all together tonight,” Hughes said. “The offensive line in front of me was awesome. They opened up all kinds of space for me. It was just great to get that first win.”
The Tonawanda defense wasn’t on the field very much, but it dominated when called upon. Tim Barnard had a fumble recovery and Hughes had an interception, while Dominic Reed, Nick Pullo and Steven Warthling each sacked Tiger QB Justin Twarog.
“I’m so happy for our guys,” Gross said. “They’ve worked hard and they’ve stayed positive no matter what. They didn’t hang their heads, and it’s nice to see them get rewarded.”
