Saturday Sports: General Brown hits the gridiron, battles Cato Meridian
DEXTER, N.Y. (WWNY) - With area high schools beginning spring break, it was a very light day of action on the local high school sports scene with one exception at Fisher Field in Dexter.
The General Brown Lions hosted Cato Meridian in high school football action.
The Lions appear to score on their first possession when Nate Heller calls his own number on 4th down and goes 51 yards for the touchdown, but the score is waved off due to an inadvertent whistle.
But the Lions defense comes up big on Cato’s first possession as Heller picks off Konar Witkowski and it’s off to the races. Heller weaves his way into the end zone on his 18th birthday for a 60 yard touchdown, putting the Lions on top 7-0 after 1 quarter.
The Blue Devils were looking to get something going on offense, but Sheamus Devine comes up with the sack of Witkowski.
Cato Meridian evens the score in the 2nd when Witkowski connects with Carter Abate on 4th down for the touchdown, tying the game at 7.
General Brown goes on to win 41-7.
In men’s college lacrosse from North Country Field, 10th ranked St. Lawrence hosted Skidmore.
