Sophomore quarterback Josh Feyerabend threw for 194 yards and four touchdowns, and also rushed for a touchdown as host Unatego defeated Delhi, 48-14, in a Section Four Football Conference Division V game Friday.
“I think he made good reads,” Unatego coach Frank Microni said of Feyerabend, who completed 13 of 19 passes. “He read the defense well and our guys can run pretty well after the catch.”
The Spartans (4-1, 3-0) opened the scoring on a 38-yard fumble return by Ryan Marszal. It came on Delhi’s first offensive possession.
“We were telling him to jump on it, but he scooped it up and went down the sideline,” Microni said. “It was awesome. It got us going.”
Feyerabend’s extra point made it 7-0.
Delhi (1-4, 1-2) closed to 7-6 on a 3-yard scoring run by Brian Ingram in the first quarter. Ingram finished with a game-high 131 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
In the second quarter, Feyerabend threw three touchdown passes. The first came on a middle screen to Tanner Winchester that covered 42 yards. The second was a 9-yard pass to Winchester and the third went 15 yards to Jared Jones, capping a 92-yard drive.
The Spartans stopped Delhi on downs on its 8, setting up the big drive.
“That drive was nice,” Microni said. “We mixed in some runs, hit some hitches and some bigger pass plays.”
Feyerabend’s scoring pass to Jones came with 1:27 left in the half and increased Unatego’s lead to 28-6.
When Feyerabend hit Winchester on a 14-yard scoring play in the third quarter and kicked the PAT, the Spartans led, 35-6.
Winchester finished with five catches for 115 yards and three touchdowns. He also scored on a 4-yard run.
“It happened to be Tanner’s night,” Microni said. “He was popping open.”
Conner Gioffe went 6-for-14 for 80 yards for Delhi. He had passes intercepted by Nate Wilsey and Braedon Beadle. Noah Dedominicis made an interception for the Bulldogs.
The Spartans will host Deposit/Hancock on Friday.
B-G 28, UV 0
Dylan Moffitt rushed for a game-high 123 yards, including a 62-yard scoring run in the first quarter, to lead host Bainbridge-Guilford to a Section Four Football Conference Division V victory.
The Bobcats (1-4, 1-2) scored on their second play from scrimmage. Moffitt went off tackle for 62 yards and Lucas Butcher’s extra point made it 7-0.
“We had great blocking up front,” B-G coach Tim Mattingly said.
Pedro Aparicio scored on a 4-yard run late in the first quarter. B-G recovered a Unadilla Valley fumble to set up Aparicio’s touchdown. Butcher’s PAT extended the Bobcats’ lead to 14-0.
Quarterback Cole Webb scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter and contributed a 15-yard scoring run in the third quarter.
Webb suffered a broken hand in B-G’s opener and hadn’t played the last three weeks.
“It made a big difference having Cole Webb back at quarterback,” Mattingly said. “He did a really nice job of running the offense.”
Mattingly estimated B-G’s defense had eight sacks. He credited middle linebacker Dylan Mondore, nose tackle Shane Curtin, and outside linebackers Webb and Moffitt with the pressure the Bobcats put on UV quarterback Lance Gage.
“The effort defensively was the best we’ve had all season,” said Mattingly, whose team will travel to Delhi on next Saturday.
Dillon Rifanburg had 25 yards rushing and Gage threw for 42 yards for UV (0-5, 0-3).

Cooperstown (7-4, 6-3) took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Jordan Manikus with 19:09 left in the first half. Manikas beat two defenders near the left baseline before beating Lucas Ord to the near post.
“The first half, when we scored, we went into a defensive posture,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said. “We had a hard time getting them to push up. We looked like we didn’t want any part of playing offense. In the second half, we beat them to 50-50s and had some good crosses.”
Cooperstown outshot the Emerald Knights, 10-2, in the second half.
“We dominated the second half,” Miosek said. “We hit the cross bar twice and the far post once.”
