BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – West Seneca West quarterback Matt Myers is known for his arm. But, in the Far West Regionals against Wilson on Friday, the UB commit used his legs on a 76-yard TD run to help lift the Indians to a 40-22 win and trip to the Class A state semifinals.
Myers also ran for another score and tossed a 74-yard touchdown to Kyle Haettich as West Seneca West’s pushed their record to 11-0.
The quarterback opened the scoring on a gamble in the first quarter, connecting with Bryan Ball on a 28 yard touchdown on 4th down to give West a 7-0 lead. Myers added his second scoring strike in the final minute of the opening stanza, as the Indians made it 14-0.
They would have a 21-8 advantage at the half.
The Indians will now play in the state semis next Friday night at 8 p.m. against Whitesboro.
