Game 5
PCS 40 @ Cattaraugus-Little Valley 10
Friday   Oct. 1   7:30 pm

The Panthers bounced back from last week's lost, whipping the Timberwolves on their home field.  Portville's Junior RB Joe Holcomb turned on the jet engines for 3 touchdowns, and both lines came up big, despite some injuries.
This was a game that had several new faces stepping up to fill in the gaps.  In his initial game of the season, Garrett Stephen played some tough defense, complementing the work of many others like Jarid Lowe, Brad Holcomb, Brad Hill, and Eric Caya (who was sick as a dog).  Tim Zapel, Nick Prozeller, Josh Kausner, Dustin Neudeck, Matt Burlingame, Shane Hood, and Matt Blue all contributed significantly to the victory.
QB Brian Nitsche ran for one TD, and he threw a beautiful 55-yard touchdown to a stoked Kirk Austin.  Brian also had an interception that almost went for six.  Kicker Kris Young made all of his XP kicks and saved a TD with a wicked tackle on a kick-off.  Hampered by a sprain, lineman Matt Miller still did a number on the opponents, while Jared Warner and John Freeborn got in some quality hits as well.
Destiny is still waiting for Josh Haynes to return a kick to the promised land, and he almost did again in this contest.  Alex Woodhead and Lowe also got in some rushing touches, while the whole team blocked and tackled way better than they did a week ago.
