Shen runs past CBA 41-0 in AA semi­fi­nal

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

Shenen­de­howa se­nior run­ning back BillY Beach looks to cut back into a seam Fri­day night against CBA in the Sec­tion II Class AA semi­fi­nal at Brent T. Steuer­wald Sta­dium.

“I give credit to the whole of­fen­sive line, if you talk to the run­ning backs, talk to the quar­ter­back it’s all about the line up front on both sides of the foot­ball.”

And then quar­ter­back Brody Vin­cenzi just had to toss the ball to Beach and watch the ac­tion flow in front of him.

“Billy’s got great vi­sion, he’s a great run­ning back,” Claw­son said. “He’s very pa­tient, but once he finds that seam he’s got great ac­cel­er­a­tion through the hole.”

Then when needed, Vin­cenczi

put in some over­time be­fore the first half was over as the Plains­men worked on its clock man­age­ment set, cre­at­ing a 60yard scor­ing drive with just 76 se­conds left on the clock.

“We had a run­ning game plan, but when we got the foot­ball back we were think­ing about just sit­ting on it be­cause we had a 21-point lead,” Claw­son said. “We got the ball back at mid­field and said ‘Let’s go for it, let’s work on our two-minute drill.’

“We started run­ning it, us­ing the side­lines, get­ting out of bounds, we ex­e­cuted at the end so that was a re­ally big boost go­ing into half­time and then we got the ball in the sec­ond half and punched another one in.”

Vin­cenzi hit Dy­vante Ter­re­longe and Beach with three passes along the side­line for 32-yard gains and also stop the clock be­fore Beach ran the fi­nal two yards for his fourth TD of the night.

The re­main­der was just another day at the of­fice for the Plains­men.

“I feel like if we do our jobs this is the re­sult we ex­pect, if we do what we have to do and ex­e­cute like the way we know we can this was an ex­pected re­sult,” Beach said. “We can’t cel­e­brate too much, haven’t re­ally ac­com­plished much yet and we’ll just work to get another win next week.”
