Usually when a football team’s offense is predictable, it has trouble scoring points. That wasn’t the case for Letchworth/Warsaw, which scored five touchdowns while throwing the ball just twice over the entire game. Dalton English and CJ Hallopeter each scored two rushing touchdowns for L/W, and each racked up 80 yards on the ground. English’s first score came in the first quarter, when L/W answered an early Attica score from Jeremiah Donohue. English scored again in the second quarter, and was followed by a touchdown from teammate Austin Williams to get L/W a 21-7 lead at half time. Both of Hallopeter’s scores came in the second half, as L/W went up 28-7 in the third quarter and never looked back. Zach Strzelec finished with 193 rushing yards and a touchdown for Attica. Mason Johnson led the way for L/W’s defense with 9.5 total tackles. READ MORE.
