The 2019 Section V football season is in full swing. Victor defeated Canandaigua in the highly-anticipated Teddi Bowl. Due to the Federation schedule changes, three teams (Bishop Kearney/Rochester Prep, Monroe and Webster Schroeder) were moved up from their classifications. Now that the first week jittersĀ are out of the way, here are a few upcoming matchups featuring a sectionals rematch and a pair of local rivals:

GAME OF THE WEEK: HONEOYE FALLS-LIMA VS. UPREP

Both of these teams are coming off convincing, season-opening wins. The Honeoye Falls-Lima Cougars jumped out to an early 24-0 lead en route to a 44-7 rout of Newark, Friday night. Senior Mason Ferrara scrambled for 216 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Junior quarterback Reece Joint completed six of his 11 passes for 159 passing yards.

The UPrep Griffins defeated Palmyra-Macedon, 24-6, on Saturday afternoon behind Michael Cathy’s 190 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Sophomore quarterback Clyde Davis, Jr. went 7-of-17 for 143 yards and a touchdown in his first career varsity start. Andre Facen, Jr., Brandon Lucas, Anthony McCoy and Ray Rivera combined for 55 tackles.

These squads will match up for the third time since the last week of the regular season a year ago. Honeoye Falls-Lima defeated UPrep, 14-8, in last year’s regular season finale before holding them to 188 yards of offense in a 25-8 sectionals victory the following week. Ferrara combined for 175 yards and a touchdown in both contests. Rivera compiled 23 tackles against the Cougars. “We want to do better,” Davis said during a scrimmage back on August 31st. “We don’t want to lose first game of sectionals. We want to win sectionals this year. We’re bringing a whole new vibe. Just new stuff. We’re striving to be better than we were last year.”

Game is set for Saturday at 1 p.m. at Marina Auto Stadium.

OTHER MATCHUPS TO LOOK OUT FOR…..
