Class AA-Clarence vs. Rush Henrietta

In the Far West Regionals Class AA game this weekend Clarence takes on Rush-Henrietta from Section 5.

The Red Devils are coming off an amazing 31 to 28 win over Orchard Park in the Section 6 Class AA championship game. Stephen Hughes kicked a 37 yard game winning field goal on the last play of the game. Clarence coach Tom Goddard said his team got the weekend off but then got right back to business Monday at practice.

Rush-Henrietta is led by quarterback Ashton Broyld who ran for four touchdowns and threw for one in the Section 5 championship game against Irondequoit. Rush-Henrietta won the game 46 to 7. Broyld, a senior is listed at 6-feet-4 inches tall and 223 pounds will be a handful for Clarence.  

Clarence quarterback Zach Lauricella told Stu Boyar that the Royal-Comets offense is designed around their quarterback. "He can do it all. He can throw it and he can run it. He's an outstanding quarterback, a great player."

City Mission Puts Out Plea For Turkeys

BUFFALO, NY-- The people who run Buffalo's City Mission are making an urgent plea for help so they can serve up dinner for the poor this coming Thanksgiving.

The mission set a goal of collecting and serving 3,000 turkeys this season, but with just a few weeks to go, they're more than 2,300 short.

They explain why the number of turkeys they receive is so important.

"Right now we have a little bit over 700 turkeys that we have cooked and prepared to utilize a thousand we put into reserves for long winter months," says Aubrey Calhoun, City Mission spokesperson. "About 1,800 to 2,000 will actually go out through our community outreach program where churches in the inner city that have families that need turkeys will call the mission and then we are the distribute hub for that."
