SALAMANCA — Jesse Stahlman produced another outstanding individual effort and the Salamanca football team both finished its drives and logged one of its best defensive outings of the year.

The result?

The Warriors not only took care of business in beating the league’s last-place team at home, but rid the taste from its mouth of a tough 15-10 loss to Southwestern the week before.

Stahlman carried 21 times for 191 yards, an average of 9.1 per carry, and three touchdowns and Salamanca carried a shutout into the fourth quarter in racing past Chautauqua Lake/Westfield/Brocton, 48-6, in a Section 6 Class C South matchup Friday at Vets Park.


Maddox Isaac completed 4-of-6 passes for 182 yards and two TDs — a 36-yard strike to Arlen Newark and a 67-yard connection with Carmine Hoag. Quinton Jones led the defense with nine tackles, including seven solo, and Cory Holleran had five stops and an interception.

Stahlman punched in his first TD with 8:17 remaining in the first quarter and the Warriors followed it with a safety off a blocked punt to take a 9-0 first-quarter lead. If something of a slow start, they ratcheted things up in the second quarter, with Zaron Tucker
