The Ballston Spa football team scored on its first play from scrimmage, and the Scotties didn't let up as they downed Bethlehem 61-13 in last Friday's game in Delmar.
Quarterback Mark Seager connected with Kyle Warmt on a 69-yard touchdown pass to open the game.
We had a mistake on the coverage, and the kid was wide open, said Bethlehem coach Rick Leach.
Warmt added an 11-yard touchdown run later in the first quarter, and Seager threw an 11-yard scoring strike to Josh Fabian to give the Scotties (2-0) a 21-0 lead.
Ballston Spa extended its lead to 47-0 before Bethlehem (1-1) got on the scoreboard with Casiem Maxwell's 9-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The Scotties responded quickly with Nick Tubolino's 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to increase their lead to 54-6.
"We knew that they were very good ,and we knew we couldn't afford to make the mistakes that we made," said Leach. "The mistakes were what killed us."
Maxwell added a 53-yard scoring run late in the third quarter and finished with 157 rushing yards to lead the Eagles.
