All the Presidents' men couldn't stop Warwick Wildcats

    HYDE PARK-Thanks to a two-touchdown performance by Syracuse-bound runner Derek Hrinya and a staunch defensive effort, Warwick took the pole position in Class AA-Division II with a 35-0 triumph over FDR last Friday night. Quarterback Ryan Darcey got the Wildcats started off, engineering an 11-play, 75-yard drive. After Hrinya got a first down, Darcey escaped the FDR rush to scramble 21 yards for a fresh set of downs. Hrinya closed out the drive with a half dozen carries, finally bursting in from a yard out as the Wildcats jumped out to a 7-0 lead. From there it was the defense's turn. They forced a fumble inside the Presidents' 10-yard line, giving Darcey an easy chance to get his Wildcats up two scores. And that's exactly what they did when the senior found Matt Stranski on an eight-yard touchdown pitch and catch. The defense never rested for the Wildcats as they forced a turnover on downs on the Presidents' next series. Highlighting the next drive was a Darcey to Hrinya pass from 30 yards and a 13-yard strike from Darcey to Randy Devereaux that closed out the drive and gave the guests a 21-0 advantage midway into the second quarter. Again, Warwick forced a turnover on downs. But this time with a smooth cushion, Warwick coach Greg Sirico brought in back-up quarterback Chris Meinhardt. Different signal caller, same result. This time Tom Montopoli dove in from two-yards out giving Warwick a 28-0 lead at the break. Warwick's final score of the night was their most impressive as Hrinya flexed his muscles to why he could be the most dangerous player in the area. He raced 83 yards down the right sideline for his second score of the game and his fourth of the season as the lead escalated to 35-0 after a John Sala PAT. Sala has made 10 in a row. Warwick improves to 2-1 overall and 2-0 in the league.
