Hoosac Valley football overpowers Commerce in big road win

Posted

SPRINGFIELD — For the second consecutive week, the Hoosac Valley football team used a strong first half to propel itself to victory.

After holding a 50-point advantage at the break in last week's win, the Hurricanes took a 29-point halftime lead this week en route to a 43-0 victory over Commerce at Berte Field on Friday.

Liam Feeley rushed for 84 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries while Shaun Kastner added 69 yards and a score on nine touches for Hoosac (2-0, 1-0 Intercounty South).

"We've got some good senior leadership with Liam Feeley back there running," Hoosac coach Mark Harrington said. "And we've got some young sophomores that are very talented running backs."

Those sophomores are Kastner, Aaron Bush (56 yards rushing and a touchdown), and Logan Davis, among others.

Even Hurricane quarterback Carson Meczywor is a sophomore, and he added two scores on the ground to go along with 31 yards rushing. He started the scoring with a 4-yard scamper and scored again in the second frame from 2 yards out to make it 21-0.

That score was sandwiched by touchdown runs from Feeley of 4 and 19 yards, respectively.

"It's great to have as many guys as we do that can run," Feeley said of the numerous running options of the Hurricanes. "Everybody steps up. Everybody is coming out ready to play, our line is doing amazing things, and I've got to give a big shout out to them."

Kastner and Bush added touchdowns in the third quarter to start the running clock for the final 19 minutes of game action.

The win over Commerce came after a 56-0 win over Pathfinder on opening week. But Feeley said Hoosac will be ready when it plays a close game into the fourth quarter.

"We're ready to fire on all cylinders at any point in the game," he said.

Commerce (0-2, 0-2) only mustered 23 yards of total offense, with 20 of it coming on the ground. Jadas Snipes had 11 yards rushing while James King added 7 yards rushing to 3 yards receiving, the only catch of the game from either side.

"I like how [our defense] is taking it to the other team," Harrington said. "They're getting very aggressive, that's what's key. We want everyone to know that we're going to hit you and we're going to play hard."

In addition to a defense that hasn't allowed a point this season, Hoosac senior Cole Desroches rushed for 45 yards for the Hurricanes.

Hoosac continues league play next Friday at Lee while Commerce is back in action next Saturday at Capitol Region Education Council. Commerce doesn't jump back into league play until it heads to Chicopee on the first Friday in October.
