Western Mass. roundup: Springfield Central blanks Longmeadow, 27-o

For at least a day, the Springfield Central football team got the sweet taste of revenge.

After falling to Longmeadow in last season’s Western Mass. Division 1 Super Bowl, the Golden Eagles (12-1) won the rematch, 27-0, Saturday to claim the Division 1 title. It is the school’s first Super Bowl win since 2001.

Aaron Owens (73 yards on nine carries) and Da’Quon Clemons (50 yards on four carries) led the Central ground game. Junior quarterback Cody Williams threw for 98 yards and a touchdown on a bad ankle.

The teams battled to a scoreless tie through the first half, but Central broke away from the Lancers (10-3) in the third.

Williams connected with Brian Rivas on a 48-yard pass to bring the Golden Eagles into the end zone with 7:14 left in the third, and less than three minutes later, Ju’an Williams returned a punt 68 yards for another touchdown.

Clemons put together a 32-yard scramble for another score midway through the fourth quarter. Owens put the icing on the cake with his 48-yard run in the final minute to account for the 27-0 final.

Central was arguably even more impressive on the other side of the ball, as Longmeadow failed to gain a first down in the final two quarters.

Central also held Longmeadow’s Frankie Elder — who last season ran for four touchdowns and more than 200 yards — to 63 yards on nine carries and one reception.

Pathfinder 12, Turners Falls 8 — Matt Stafford’s 23-yard touchdown pass to Michael Krzynowek late in the third quarter proved to be the winner for Pathfinder, which ends its season 13-0 and Division 4 champions.

Cody Hess gave Pathfinder an early lead on a 3-yard run, but Turners Falls (10-3) took an 8-6 lead early in the third. John Ollari was on the receiving end of both the touchdown pass and the 2-point conversion try from quarterback Malcolm Smith.

Mt. Greylock 24, Belchertown 0 — Ethan Ryan scored three touchdowns as the Mounties won the Division 3 title at Westfield State.

Wahconah 24, South Hadley 21 — Ethan Wells ran for 87 yards and a touchdown, and all the scoring was in the first half of the Division 2 title game.
