Converting back-to-back turnovers into long touchdown drives at the outset, Alexander went on to defeat host Holley 51-22 this afternoon in a Genesee Region League football game.

Gaining possession on back-to-back tipped pass interceptions, the Trojans quickly capitalized on touchdown runs by Job Smith of 2 yards and Jake Wozniak of 5 yards to take the lead for good at 12-0.

The Alexander advantage ballooned to 32-0 at the half as quarterback Jared Browne threw touchdown passes of 61 yards to Josh Szymanski and of 15 and 6 yards to Derrick Busch.

The Trojans upped the lead to 45-0 in the third quarter.

Holley quarterback Nick Passarell accounted for all three of the Hawks second half touchdowns. He threw scoring strikes of 12 and 50 yards to Clarence Moyer and also ran 12 yards himself for the other tally. Passarell also ran for both two-point conversions.

Alexander is now 1-2 in the league and 2-2 overall while Holley is 0-3, 0-4.
