Orioles soar over Bronchos

AVON — As Friday’s game unfolded, everything that could go right for Avon did in its conference contest with Lafayette Jeff.

The Orioles played very solid in all three phases of the game and jumped on the visiting Bronchos early and often in their 54-14 Homecoming win.

“We’re very, very happy,” Avon coach Mark Bless said. “Offensively we were able to move the ball and do some things. Our defense has been playing very well and that trend continued. I’m really happy with our special teams because we spent some time working on a few different twists.”

Avon quarterback Brandon Peters completed 10 of 12 passes for 170 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for another TD. Peters connected with Cress Kimbrough for each passing touchdown and the pair has built a rapport as the season has progressed.

“We have a great connection together,” Peters said. “Every day in practice we come out and time up our routes, have gotten them down pat and transfer that to the game.”

Avon took its opening drive 82 yards for a score with Peters hitting Kimbrough for a 41-yard TD.

Avon’s David Griffith then intercepted Jeff quarterback Matt Johnson and ran 37 yards for a score on the Bronchos’ first offensive play. Following a two-point conversion pass from holder Drew Shayotovich to Matt Moore, the Orioles led 15-0.

“It was my first two-pick game since my sophomore year and first pick-six,” Griffith said. “We’re a great defense and if we jump on teams quick then it’s going to be a long game for the other team.”

With the offense and defense getting into the action, Avon’s special teams came up big on Jeff’s ensuing possession as Zach Williams blocked the Bronchos’ punt and recovered in the end zone for a TD. It was the junior’s first special teams TD and the score gave Avon a 22-0 lead.
