By JOHN LIKANJE

Freddie Brock racked up four touchdowns, including the game-winner with 13 seconds left, as East stunned UPrep. Ruben Torres scored three times and had the go-ahead touchdown as Eastridge staved off Wilson Magnet. Evan Salvaggio exploded for five touchdowns and carried Geneseo/Mount Morris to an upset win at Canisteo-Greenwood. There are seven undefeated teams remaining, but that will change Friday night at Warsaw High School. Here are a few upcoming matchups featuring another clash of unbeaten squads and two marquee games on Saturday afternoon:

GAME OF THE WEEK: LEROY VS. LETCHWORTH/WARSAW

These squads have been the cream of the crop in class C and Section V all season long. Attica, the only other undefeated team in the class, will host Avon Friday night.
