Dundee's # 47 Johvannie Andrades runs through the line and right over the South Seneca defenders.

The Dundee Scotsmen looked to rebound from last week's disappointing loss last minute loss to Red Jacket. The new week brought a new Finger Lakes West opponent, South Seneca to Dundee. And of course, it was the annual homecoming game for the Scotsmen. The Dundee eleven answered the call, and jumped right back on the winning track with a convincing 49-6 win over the visiting Falcons.

The afternoon start featured a chilly wind and consistent light rain. The weather condition would prove to be a factor to South Seneca. They had trouble hanging on to the ball. Dundee capitalized on these mistakes and eventually eased away to the win. The Dundee offense was back on track and their rugged defense shut down any attempt the Falcons made to get back into the game. All in all, an excellent showing for the hometown Scots.

Dundee opened the scoring in the first quarter on a 44-yard pass from Austin Thompson

to set up a score. Thompson hit Jayson Lovejoy on a 39-yard scoring strike to give Dundee an early 7-0 lead.

The Scots upped their lead to 14-0 in the second quarter on an Austin Thompson to Devin Jensen touchdown pass from 27 yards out. Johvannie Andrades once again converted the point after and Dundee led 14-0. Andrades rumbled in from 2 yards out on Dundee's next possession, followed shortly by a 11-yard touchdown run by Tom Fiorella. As the first half rolled to an end, the hometown Scots enjoyed a convincing 28-0 lead.

Johvannie Andrades scored his second rushing touchdown from 3 yards out and also added another extra point to expand Dundee's winning margin to 35-0 after three quarters of play. Samuel Richards scored his first touchdown of the year in the 4th quarter. He plowed in from 5 yards out and Dundee led 42-0.

South Seneca finally dented the end zone on their next possession to cut the lead to 42-6. But Dundee quickly answered when Jared Jayne scored his first TD of the season on a sparkling 41 yard scamper. The trusty foot of Andrades added the 49th and final point of the afternoon. The clock ran out on the Falcons and Dundee happily walked off with a big 49-6 win.

Dundee improved their Finger Lakes West record to 2-3. South Seneca's record also stands at 2-3 in the league. Up next for Dundee, the Marcus Whitman Wildcats on Friday night in Rushville. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
