SEASON RECAP: Tonawanda

(Continued)



Kirkwood added 11 carries for 90 yards and a touchdown in the win. Defensively, Kirkwood had 12 tackles and an interception, while Charlie Partridge added nine tackles and Vinnie D’Orazio had seven to go along with a fumble recovery.

Dean Bentley added a sack on defense in the win.

Week 5


Medina 31, Tonawanda 14

Nick Joy ran for three touchdowns and quarterback Tyler Evans passed to Nick Peterson for another score as the host Mustangs overcame an early 14-0 lead by the visiting Warriors.

An interception by Joshua Lilly at the Warriors’ 39 set up a nine-play march capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run from Carson for Tonawanda’s first score, followed by an interception by Carson that set up a 1-yard TD run by Kirkwood. A big 35-yard run by Fasciano keyed the drive.

The Mustangs’ defense, though, rose to the occasion, blanking the Warriors over the final three quarters.

Week 6


East Aurora 42, Tonawanda 22

Turnovers on their first three possessions dropped the Warriors into a 21-0 hole they were never able to emerge from at Clinton Small Stadium.

It was a game of highs and lows for Kirkwood, as he scored all three of his team’s touchdowns, on runs of 17, 4 and 19 yards, but was also involved in fumbles on the Warriors’ first two possessions and had a pass intercepted on the third.

The Blue Devils amassed 342 yards of total offense to 336 for THS.

Week 7


Lackawanna 36, Tonawanda 20

For a third week in a row, miscues cost Tonawanda a shot at a victory. Visiting Lackawanna scored on a pair of THS fumbles in the second half to improve to 4-3 overall and 4-2 in Class B North. Tonawanda dropped to 2-5, 2-4.

“Maybe it’s a lack of concentration because we seem to play well overall, but then make a couple of mistakes that wind up costing us the game,” Tilley said after the game.

Michael Barry had a 10-yard touchdown run for the Warriors, while Carson scored two TDs and had 159 yards on 20 carries.
