ELLICOTTVILLE — No team on the New York side of the Big 30 football border has been as dominant as Franklinville/Ellicottville this fall. The Titans kept it up Friday night with a 46-0 non-league takedown of Bolivar-Richburg.
The latest victory included contributions all around as the F/E (5-0) scored on special teams, through the air, and on the ground, while its stout defense produced its first shutout of the season.
“It was really all three facets,” coach Jason Marsh said. “Our special teams got us started with a blocked punt for a touchdown. Obviously, the defense pitches a shutout, and our offense did a good job moving the ball and putting points on the board.”
Through five games, the Titans have outscored opponents 173-32. They are the lone Big 30 NY unbeaten. They outgained B-R (2-3) 320-84.
“We’re playing really well,” Marsh said. “We’re firing on all cylinders.”
Especially the defense, which hasn’t given up more than one touchdown in four games. Against the Wolverines, they registered six sacks, recovered two fumbles, and tackles for losses that limited B-R to 6 rushing yards on 30 carries.
The individual standout for F/E was Nicholas Logel, who recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown and hauled in scoring passes of 77 and 4 yards from Logan Frank.
Frank (6 rushes, 40 yards) chipped in two rushing touchdowns, and Tyler Clear (6-64) and Clayton Rowland rounded out the scoring for F/E with scoring runs of their own.
Wyatt Chudy paced the F/E defense with 5.5 tackles. Zack Wolfer, Matt Peters, Jordan Peplinski and Everett Leonard were credited with one sack each.
Hudson Evingham had two catches for 33 yards and led the B-R defense with five tackles.
