FOOTBALL

Cooperstown 38, NYM 36

Lucas Lyons scored three touchdowns Saturday and Mike Perrino had two, rallying Cooperstown to a Section Three non-division victory over visiting New York Mills to end a 13-game skid.

NYM jumped to a 22-0 lead after one quarter, but Lyons scored on a 4-yard run with 3 minutes, 26 seconds left before halftime. Carmen Booan then hit Joe Harmon with a two-point conversion pass to pull Cooperstown to 22-8.

Cooperstown outscored NYM, 14-6, in the third quarter as Lyons ran in TDs from 3 and 4 yards, then followed the latter with a two-point conversion run.

Perrino took over in the fourth quarter with a pair of TD runs. After Perrino scored from 4 yards, Booan hit Max Bonderoff on the two-point conversion pass to tie the score at 30. NYM responded with a TD pass but failed on the conversion attempt with four minutes remaining.

Perrino’s 2-yard TD run with 50 seconds left locked the teams at 36. Lyons then capped the scoring with a two-point conversion run for the final margin.

Lyons finished with a season-best 252 rushing yards on 34 carries for Cooperstown, which got 94 ground yards on 17 carries from Perrino.

First-year head coach Joe Pestar earned his first victory as head coach of Cooperstown (1-6), which plays in the Class D East Division of Section Three.
