Football: Fivay 41, Anclote 31

HUDSON — Fivay quarterback Tyler Degen connected with wideout Andrew Meyer with for two first-half touchdowns as the Falcons prevailed 41-31 Friday night.

Meyer hauled in seven catches for 231 yards and three touchdowns, while Degen finished 11-for-20 passing for 293 yards with four touchdowns.

Also helping out the Falcons offense was running back Davion Sutton, who had 196 yards on the ground to go with two touchdowns.

Anclote was able to get on the board in the first half when tailback Willie Barrett rushed it in from 5 yards out for the Sharks' only score of the half.

In the second half Anclote forced Fivay into a safety, then on the ensuing drive Barrett ran in for his second touchdown from 2 yards out.

The Sharks capitalized on their two-point conversion when John Forgione connected with Tyrene Carter, cutting the lead to only 10 with 1:03 left in the third quarter. Fivay extended the lead to 17 in the fourth quarter when Degen and Meyer hooked up a third time from 10 yards out. Forgione launched a 54-yard TD pass to Shymere Carter. Then the Falcons closed out scoring with Sutton's second TD.
