The Dundee Scots got back on the winning track in a big way on Saturday afternoon in Ovid. They had suffered their first loss of the season to the powerful Red Jacket team last week in a showdown for first place in the Finger Lakes West. But the disappointing setback quickly became a distant memory Saturday. Dundee picked up their fifth win of the season and solidified their hold on second place in the league with a convincing 46-6 romp over South Seneca.

The Scots were off and running early in this contest. On their first offensive series, Brennan Krall dashed into the end zone and quickly gave the Maroon and White a 6-0 lead. Jovhannie Andrades converted the P.A.T. and the Scots lead 7-0. The Dundee defense forced fumbles on the next three South Seneca possessions and parlayed the Falcon mistakes into touchdowns. Justin Neu tossed a 4-yard touchdown strike to Jon Huber to make it 14-0. Quarterback Neu ran 19 yards for the third Dundee score and Bradley Smith picked up the third Falcon bobble and reached pay dirt.

Brennan Krall scored his second touchdown of the afternoon on a 13-yard run. As the dust settled on the first quarter, the scoreboard read Dundee, 26 - South Seneca, 0.

The second quarter resembled the first in many respects. Dundee's Christopher Cramer galloped 54 yards to increase Dundee's lead to 33-0. Later in the quarter, Jeffrey Wood intercepted a Falcon pass and ran it back 54 yards for another Dundee touchdown. The first half ended with the Scots holding a commanding 39-0 lead.

The second 24 minutes were much less active. The two teams traded touchdowns and the game ended with Dundee enjoying a 46-6 winning margin. The win improves the Scotsmen's record to 5-1. They will host Marcus Whitman next Saturday afternoon. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
