Batavia Blue Devils football
Batavia Blue Devils finish season with semi-finals loss
The 4th ranked Batavia Blue Devils took on the number 2 ranked Hornell Red Raiders on a rain soaked gridiron for the Sec V Class B semi-final.
As they normally do, the Blue Devils set the tone of the first half by scoring first on an across field drive.
A couple of possessions later the Red Raiders answered with a touchdown of their own and tied the game 7 to 7.
Good defensive plays and the rain ruled the rest first half. Neither offense could capitalize on good field position and passing was all but nonexistent because of the rain. At then end of the half, the score remained tied.
At the opening of the second half Hornell scored quickly changing the momentum of the game. Batavia played catch up for the entire second half. The Red Raiders consistently had better drives and good defense forcing a couple of turnovers to stop the Blue Devils.
Ray Leach only touched the ball once in the second half due to a leg injury. Perhaps the same leg injury that stopped the game last week so he could be helped off the field.
Hornell scored another touchdown and again failed to convert on the extra point.
The final score was Batavia 7 Hornell 26.
Congratulations Batavia Blue Devils on yet another winning season!

It was more than impressive. For many in attendance it seemed that the game was over and it was time to go home.
Perhaps this is what the Batavia Blue Devils’ offense thought, too. They would not score again until the last two minutes of the third quarter when Wayne had come all the way back to lead the Blue Devils 22 to 21.
During the nearly three quarters when Batavia’s offense had almost no effect on the game, Batavia’s defense had a few impressive stops and forced three turnovers. John Kindig and Josh Barber each had eight tackles for a loss of two yards.
Wayne slowly battled back gaining momentum with each successful play.
With 1:51 left in the third quarter Batavia’s offense returned by scoring a touchdown. With 4:42 left in the fourth, Wayne answered back with a touchdown of their own, but failed to convert on a two-point extra point attempt.
At 1:44 Batavia scored again, making the final score 36 to 28. Chandler Baker passed 14 times for seven completions and 65 yards. Ray Leach had 12 caries for 158 yards.
Batavia Blue Devils Dominate in Homecoming Game
The Blue Devils varsity football team took on Franklin Pennsylvania Friday night in their homecoming game.
The Blue Devils scored on their opening drive and then scored a saftey on because of a bad snap of Franklin’s first offensive play. Franklin answered with a touchdown of their own later in the 1st. But the game proceeded with Batavia out scoring Franklin about 2 to 1.
In the mid 3rd quarter Franklin seemed all but defeated until a long pass and reception that was run in for a touchdown.
Franklin rallied and came back bring the score to within 8 points to 28-20. The Franklin rally was killed when a pass bounced out of a receivers hands and was intercepted by Batavia. The rest of the game was all Blue Devils.
