ORISKANY, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Oriskany Redskins shutdown the Waterville offense en route to the 23-12 win on Saturday. The win puts the Redskins in a tie for second place with Waterville in the Class D South.
Mike Bunal scored in the first quarter on a four yard touchdown run and kicked the extra point to give Oriskany an early 7-0 lead. Waterville then took the ensuing kickoff back for a score but trailed 7-6. Bunal would later extend the lead on an interception returned for a touchdown. Waterville got as close as 13-12 after a Taylor Jaquays one yard score. However, the Redskins defense was awesome.
