Wildcats steamroll through Mahar

ORANGE — Throughout the first four games of the Lee football season, coach Keith Thomson referred to that stretch as a gauntlet, something the Wildcats had to get through as best they could before the playoff push could begin.

Finishing the stretch at 1-3, it was clear to the Wildcats their postseason hopes would be in their own hands as the second month of the season began with a trip eastward to face the Mahar Senators, who held one of the coveted spots in the dance when play began Friday night.

But when the night ended, it was Lee that emerged victorious, knocking off the Senators 30-7 behind a stifling defensive performance that saw the home team accrue fewer than 50 yards over the duration of the game.

From the onset, Lee asserted itself as the aggressor, running the ball down Mahar’s throat with the trio of Gabe Kelley, Jack Purcell and Nick Nicotra, who left the game with a leg injury at the end of the first quarter.
