NEW WATERFORD, Ohio (WKBN) – South Range cruised past Crestview 34-7 on Friday, powered by Aniello Buzzacco’s four TD passes.
Buzzacco finished 8 of 12 for 138 yards, as South Range outgained Crestview 386-127 in total yards. Remish finished with 123 rush yards on 12 carries.
Later in the first quarter, Ryan Davenport caught a 21-yard TD pass from Buzzacco for a 20-0 South Range lead.
Early in the second quarter, Buzzacco and Combs hooked up for another TD pass — this time for a 70-yard score.
“They are great men. It’s nice that they can’t concentrate on one,” Raiders head coach Dan Yeagley remarked. “Buzz can run and throw so you have to watch out for him, then Peyton can run the ball like crazy. And then you have Mathias and Toy out on the edges. We create some match-up problems.”
Buzzacco found Josh Stear on a 13-yard TD pass midway through the third quarter for his fourth TD of the game.
““It’s really helpful to know that we can run the ball or we can throw the ball,” Quarterback Aniello Buzzacco said. “Putting it in the air I know my receivers are going to go catch the ball. It’s great feeling knowing I have a good line in front of me to block.”
“When you play good teams and good players that’s what they do. They keep at it and keep at it and they end up popping a couple,” Rebels coach Paul Cusick explained. “All you can do is hope to keep your guys to keep playing hard and we did.”
Crestview scored in the fourth on a 7-yard TD run by Danny Moore.
The Rebels are suffering from numerous injuries, Cusick does not use that as an excuse for his squad, “You never want to use excuses, I mean when you play South Range you have to play up and you have to play good football. We didn’t play good football tonight and they did.”
“Growing up and playing Crestview you always want to beat them. They are our rival and it really does feel great to beat them,” Buzzacco stated about the importance of the win for the Raiders.
