The Warriors post a 56-35 victory over the Patriots on Thursday night at Schroeder in the final football game of the season for both teams.
Jake Guy ended the season on a high note as the Webster Schroeder junior quarterback accounted for seven touchdowns in leading the Warriors to a 56-35 victory over Penfield.
Guy scored three touchdowns on runs of 3, 72, and 2 yards, and threw for four more - 7, 28, and 3 yards to senior Mike Collichio, and 13 yards to senior Parrish McKnight.
"Jake and Mike Collichio both played well," said Schroeder head coach Kali Watkins. "The whole offensive line played really well. They came together and peaked as an offense at the end of the season."
The game was the final one of the season for both teams as Schroeder finished with a 4-5 record and Penfield ended at 3-6.
"This isn't where we wanted to end up, but we made definite progress throughout the year," Watkins said in assessing the season. "Some kids found some new positions, and things look bright for next year."
There was only one punt in the contest, and that was by Penfield with under two minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
The Patriots took the opening kickoff and drove 64 yards to break on top on a two-yard run by junior Connor Russell.
The Warriors answered back with a 76-yard march capped by a Guy pass to senior Mike Collichio for 7 yards. The first quarter neded in a 6-6 tie.
Penfield completed a 61-yard drive with a 34-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Kyle Covley to senior Matt Condon. The pair connected for the two-point conversion and a 14-6 edge.
Schroeder got great field position on the ensuing kickoff that included a 15-yard penalty against the Patriots. The Warriors drove 35-yard as Guy found senior Parrish McKnight for a 13-yard touchdown strike. Guy ran in the two-point play to knot the game at 14-14.
Collichio intercepted a pass to give the Warriors the ball on the Penfield 28. Collichio and Guy hooked up on the next snap for a 28-yard touchdown pass. Alex Alfieri kicked the first of his five consecutive PATs for Schroeder.
A hard hit on the kickoff jarred the ball free as Warrior Elijah Jones recovered it on the Schroeder 47.
Guy scored on a 14-yard run, but it was called back by a penalty. McKnight scampered 24 yards to paydirt and a 28-14 advantage.
However, the Patriots were not done and put together an 80-yard march capped by a one-yard plunge by Russell. Junior Jeff Young added the PAT with 18 seconds left in the half.
The Warriors tacked on four more touchdowns in the third quarter to put the game away.
Guy finished with 191 yards on 15 carries, and completed 18 of 27 passes for 246 yards. Collichio had nine receptions for 126 yards and three touchdowns. McKnight added six rushes for 53 yards and four catches for 31 yards.
No one from either side could remember the last a Penfield team put up 35 points on a Webster football team.
"That's something," said Penfield head coach Greg Gessler. "We played a really good game for the first half.
"A couple of penalties and turnovers hurt us, but the kids were resilient. They didn't want to quit, and as a coach I'm really proud of that."
