  • WEST CANADA VALLEY 41, MOHAWK 7
    The charging West Canada Valley Indians scored four touchdowns in the second quarter against visiting Mohawk on the way to an overwhelming 41-7 win Saturday.
    The Mohicans would not score again after a first-possession touchdown run in the first quarter. Carson Murphy’s one-yard plunge gave winless Mohawk (0-3, 0-1 D East) a 7-0 lead but the Mohicans would not see the end zone again.
    West Canada Valley’s offense kept the ball away from Mohawk with a 48-yard drive to end the first quarter, paving the way for sophomore Patrick Edwards to score on the second play of the second quarter with a three-yard carry. The Mohicans turned the ball over on the first play after the kick return, allowing Edwards to run in another touchdown to give the Indians the lead.
    Mohawk immediately turned the ball over again and West Canada Valley answered with a third touchdown on a 16-yard pass from quarterback Troy Moody to Eric Wright. Finally, senior Xavier Maxwell intercepted a pass from Murphy and ran it back 60 yards for a touchdown in the last minute of the half.
    “We’re a young team,” Mohawk’s head coach Roy Upson said of his team’s struggles to hold the ball. “We’re going to grow week to week.”
    “As aggressive as we played, we probably caused some of their mistakes,” Indians head coach Mike Moody said.
    West Canada Valley (2-1, 1-0 D East) added two touchdowns in the second half.
    Edwards finished the game with 96 yards on 16 carries while Sabastain Torres had 52 yards and a touchdown on his seven carries. Moody completed five of his eight pass attempts for 83 yards with all but one completion and 10 of the yards going to Wright.
    West Canada Valley’s defense limited Mohawk to 77 yards rushing.
    The Indians travel to Dolgeville next week, while the Mohicans will visit Sandy Creek.
