Kats Fall in Region III Championship

Saturday, November 12, 2011
 
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Nov. 12 - Behind four Colter Johnson field goals and four interceptions, the Alfred State College football team recorded a 26-20 win over Erie Community College in Saturday's Region III Championship game at Jim Ball Stadium.

Erie CC, which won the regular-season meeting 23-21 at Alfred State, was led by freshman running back J.J. Dickey's 116 rushing yards and two touchdowns. The Kats finish the season 2-8. Erie CC had won the only other Region III Championship game in 2007.

Dickey capped the game's opening drive with a five-yard run. Alfred State then got a 26-yard field goal by Johnson to start a run of 26-unanswered points. After an interception, ASC got a five-yard pass from Greg Hampton to Devin Simmons for a 10-7 lead. Following a short punt, Hampton completed a 32-yard pass to Simmons to set up a 1-yard TD run by Kevin Wilkes for a 17-7 lead after the first quarter.

The Pioneers took advantage of a short kickoff, an interception and another short punt to set up three Johnson field goals on their three third-quarter drives.

Dickey broke loose on a 32-yard run to bring the Kats with 13, 26-13, with 14:21 remaining. A holding penalty negated ECC's first extra-point attempt. The second one failed after a bobbled snap.

Dickey set up ECC's third touchdown when he broke away for a 30-yard run. Two plays later, quarterback Julien Salerno (Pittsburgh, Pa.) ran up the middle for a 20-yard touchdown.

ECC was penalized on back-to-back onside kick attempts, giving Alfred State the ball. After Erie CC forced a change of possession on fourth down, the Kats got the ball on their 6 with 64 seconds remaining. Erie CC got to the 39-yard line before turning the ball over on downs.
