  • HERKIMER 42, SOUTH LEWIS 14
    Quarterback Sean Crandall accounted for four touchdowns and more than 300 yards of offense Friday as the Herkimer Magicians routed South Lewis 42-14 in their home opener.
    The Magicians got the scoring started with a 38-yard pass from Crandall to Matt Ervin for a touchdown with 1:46 left in the opening period.
    A flurry of scoring in the middle of the second quarter put the Magicians (2-1) up 21-7 at halftime. TeJay Chilluffo intercepted a pass and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown that gave the home team a 13-0 lead after a missed conversion. Dylan Peebles put South Lewis on the board with a 72-yard touchdown run. Not to be outdone, Crandall answered with a 75-yard run 22 seconds later then passed to Ervin for the two-point conversion.
    Crandall ran for two more touchdowns in the third quarter and Bryan McGuire added an eight-yard run for the final score.
    Peebles tacked on a second long touchdown run for South Lewis, running 65 yards to score in the middle of the fourth quarter.
    Crandall ran for 223 yards on 10 carries and completed six of his nine pass attempts for 80 yards.
    The Herkimer defense got 12 tackles from Terry Oldfield and nine tackles and a sack from Ricky Mergenthaler.
    Playing two days after learning of the death of Missy Lasowski, a teacher and coach at the school, the Magicians wore pink cancer ribbons on their helmets and donned pink socks. Prior to the game, there was a moment of silence for Lasowski who had been treated for breast cancer but saw the disease return in the spring.
    The Magicians play on the road Friday at Little Falls. The game, originally scheduled for Saturday afternoon, will be played under temporary lights on Little Falls’ high school field.
