BROCKPORT, N.Y. - The Brockport High School Football team fell 35-11 to Irondequoit Thursday. The Blue Devils turned the ball over four times as they fell to 1-2 on the season. Their lone touchdown came on the ground from Quarterback Landon Scott.
The tone was set early as Brockport's opening drive ended in a fumble on a botched snap for Scott. A quick drive from an efficient Irondequoit attack led by quarterback Taiden Makubire followed. He ended it with a rainbow pass towards the back right pylon and Christian Freeman was the first player in the end zone, the Eagles had a 6-0 lead.
Scott led his team down to the Eagles 28 yard line but failed to capitalize with another costly turnover. Myles Wynn came up with the lone interception on the day for Irondequoit. Brockport would respond by ending Irondequoits drive with a pick of their own. Gregory Rightmeyer's interception led to points on the board in form of a Nathan Parker field goal.
As we headed to the 2nd quarter things quickly became all Irondequoit out on the field. Makubire led the Eagles down the field and a goal line sneak put them up 12-3. Brockport responded with a commanding drive of their own. They entered the red zone off a pass to running back Brayden Sccaccia. Irondequoit's Cameron Freeman stopped that momentum dead in its tracks when he stripped Scott and took it to the house. The score sat at a 17 point differential with Brockport's hope fleeting.
Brockport's third turnover came on the ensuing kick off. the Eagles drove home an eight yard touchdown with a two point conversion, as Irondequoit cruised to the end of the half and the rest of the game.
Scott scored the lone Blue Devils touchdown on a quarterback sneak.
"I gotta give credit to my offensive line, they make the hole and I just got to put my head down and power through," Scott said.
A late touchdown from Deshawn Johnson ended things at 35-11 as Irondequoit move to 3-0 with an exclamation mark. The Blue Devils now sit at 1-2, their head coach Scott Nugent is still working for the perfect product.
"We gotta execute, we were prepared we knew what they were running...but if you're not doing the plays that were supposed to its not gonna be successful" said Nugent.
"We gotta watch film, learn from this and move forward...We got Churchville next week so we got to work hard in practice," said Nugent.
The Brockport Blue Devils will now turn their attention to the Churchville Chili Saints next Friday at 7 p.m.
