Sidney rallies past Walton in opener

Corbin Curley scored on a 29-yard pass from Dylan Umbra with 27 seconds remaining as visiting Sidney rallied for a 28-24 season-opening non-division Section Four Football Conference victory at Walton on Saturday.

Sidney went 73 yards in 1:09 for the go-ahead score. One of the biggest plays of the drive was a 44-yard completion from Umbra to Josh Wilce.

Umbra finished 9-for-16 for 224 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran 11 times for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Walton (0-1) opened a 24-14 lead in the fourth quarter, when Dylan Hornbeck scored on a 1-yard run and Bob Albro went in on the conversion run.

Sidney pulled to 24-22 with about six minutes remaining. Umbra connected with Alex Heil on a 52-yard touchdown. Heil also caught the conversion pass.

Heil finished with four catches for 78 yards. Curley had two catches for 67 yards.

Sidney (1-0) took a 6-0 lead 16 seconds into play as Andy Kozak returned the opening kickoff 85 yards.

Touchdown runs of 5 and 2 yards in the second quarter by sophomore quarterback Dalton Kaminsky helped Walton to a 16-6 halftime lead. Kaminsky hit Nick Shiels on the first conversion and Christian Howe ran in the second.

Sidney made it 16-14 in the third on Umbra's 6-yard run and Heil's conversion catch from Umbra.

Howe had a game-high 88 yards on 19 carries to lead Walton, which received 84 yards on 19 carries from Hornbeck. Walton visits Bainbridge-Guilford (1-0) in a Division VII game at 7 p.m. Friday night.

Sidney will face its second straight Hoover-coached team when it hosts Oneonta High (1-0) at 7 p.m. Friday. Walton coach Jim Hoover is the father of Oneonta coach Adam Hoover, whose team opened the season Friday with a 40-27 win at Greene.
