ALBION – Unable to keep the momentum from an early scoring drive, Albion bowed 21-6 to Olean this evening in the semifinals of the Section VI Class B Chuck Funke Memorial Consolation Bowl Classic.

Ed Wolfe, scored on a 15 yard run to cap the game opening drive but Albion was unable to find the end-zone again.

Wolfe, who had three carries for 27 yards on that drive, finished the game with 98 yards to up his season total to 1,077.

Olean answered with a pair of second quarter touchdowns by Jared Proud on runs of 13 and 4 yards to rally into the lead for good by a 14-6 margin at the half.

The Huskies later added an insurance touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Albion’s last threat to get back into the game in the second half was dashed by a lost fumble at the Olean 20 yard line.

Kollin Reynolds, Steven Stauss and Clayton Stanton each made nine tackles and Wolfe eight to lead the busy Albion defensive unit.

Albion finishes the season at 4-4 while Olean advances to the finals also at 4-4.
