FOOTBALL: Bulldogs ruin chance for perfect season

Joe Colon | Amherst News-Times

Comets Christian Velez and Aiden Johnson tag team to make the stop Friday against Olmsted Falls. Few plays went as well — the Bulldogs bit in for a 27-2 victory. Pressure from the ‘Dogs defensive line shut down running back Khennedy Scagliozzo, who entered the game with more than 1,000 running yards this season and averaged four touchdowns per game. The lone Amherst score came in the third quarter, when a holding call against Olmsted Falls in the end zone resulted in a safety. The loss derailed an otherwise perfect season for the Comets, who fall to 5-1 (4-1 in the Southwestern Conference). Now they prepare to host the Avon Lake Shoremen in Friday’s homecoming game, set for 7 p.m. at Mercy Health Stadium, Steele High School. Homecoming parade line-up will begin at 4 p.m. on Forest Street and the procession will march down Park Avenue starting at 5 p.m. The homecoming king and queen will be crowned at 6:30 p.m. at the stadium.
