Unable to build on an early lead the Roy-Hart/Barker/Lyndonville Silverbacks dropped a 30-8 decision to the visiting CG Finney Falcons in an 8 Man Division football game this evening at Roy-Hart.

The Silverbacks jumped out to an early 8-0 lead as Rodney Davis ran 5 yards for a touchdown and also had the two-point conversion carry.

However, the Falcons came battling back to take a 22-8 lead at the half as quarterback Jon Bovee completed a pair of touchdown passes to Adian Guardelben on plays covering 20 and 16 yards.

The Falcons later put a lock on the win as Dorian Vanshudt broke loose for a 60 yard touchdown run in the third quarter for a 30-8 lead.

The Falcons improve to 2-2 while the Silverbacks slip to 0-4.

The regular season will come to a close next Tuesday as the Falcons host Holley and the Silverbacks visit South Seneca.
