Chiefs defeat Gouverneur

The Saranac Chiefs scored 32 points in the second quarter as they defeated Gouverneur, 46-26, Sept. 24.

After Gouverneur scored late in the opening quarter for a 7-0 lead, the Chiefs offense started rolling when Ben Weightman scored on a run from 13-yards out and converted the two-point conversion with just over one minute gone in the quarter.

Weightman then connected with Austin Velie on a 13-yard pass and again ran for the conversion, followed by a 1-yard run for Weightman with 37 seconds left in the half.

Then, with 19 seconds left in the half, Weightman hit Ryan St. Clair for a 10-yard scoring pass to give the Chiefs a 32-7 lead heading into halftime.

Weightman scored on another one-yard run in the third quarter, and then connected with St. Clair a second time for a 38-yard score. Weightman finished the game with 76yards and three scores on the ground, while going 10-of-14 for 158 yards and three scores passing.
