Fast start leads York past Letchworth, 32-8
GAINSEVILLE — The York football team needed a signature win over a proven program.
I’d say a 32-8 victory over the defending state champs might suffice.
Playing in just his second game, Kelvin Voisey ran for 159 yards on 14 carries with two TD’s as visiting York whipped Letchworth 32-8 to grab a stranglehold on not only the Livingston Conference D-III title, but a berth in the Class D sectionals as well.
If York beats a one-win Bolivar-Richburg team next week, and winless Geneseo the week after, they will clinch both.
Senior Tyler Shutts finished 5-of-12 passing for 222 yards, with Patrick Dishaw catching three of those completions for 130 yards.
After being upset by previously winless Holley last week, the Golden Knights took out their frustrations on the Indians, who were victimized by some big plays early on their home turf.
“A couple of them were just quick flares that they took to the house,” Letchworth coach Tim McMullen said.
York (3-2) scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and built a 20-0 cushion.
Shutts hooked up with Dishaw on a 67-yard scoring strike, then hit Tom Gates for the two-point conversion. Shutts then connected with T.J. Coleman for a 25-yard score to make it 14-0.
Voisey ended York’s big quarter with a 35-yard touchdown run.
Shutts hooked up with Dishaw again in the second quarter, this time for 58 yards, for a touchdown and a 26-0 York advantage.
Letchworth (3-2) broke through in the third quarter on a 5-yard run by Keenan Platt and a two-point conversion pass from Curtis Hoffman to Steele Drew.
But Voisey added a 20-yard scoring run, his second touchdown run of the night, later in the frame.
Dishaw, a junior defensive back, led the Knights defense with three interceptions while senior Andrew Short made 11 tackles.
Letchworth turned it over six times.
Platt led the Indians with 70 yards on 20 rushes, while Jake Remington added 58 on 12 carries. Remington notched 19 tackles and Jeff Day 17. Day also forced a fumble.
