Rochester blasts Cal, 42-7

ROCHESTER — The Rochester Rams are considered the second best team in WPIAL’s Class A behind Clairton.

California found out why Friday night.

The unbeaten Rams (10-0) did all their scoring in the opening 24 minutes in a 42-7 romp over the visiting Trojans (6-4).

“They’re a very good team and it’s a shame we didn’t have a better showing against them,” said second-year California coach Brady Barbero.

T.D. Conway, California’s 1,000-yard passer, had to take a back seat to Rams’ quarterback Jason Adamson.

While Conway was completing 12 of 29 passes for 112 yards and a 5-yard touchdown pass to older brother Dakota Conway in the fourth quarter, Adamson was a perfect six-for-six for 160 yards and three touchdowns in the first half.

Rochester led 19-0 in the first quarter on Adamson’s 29-yard touchdown pass to Troy Belcastro, followed by touchdown runs of 45 yards by De’Andre Moon and 2 yards by Devon Glass.

In the second quarter Adamson threw touchdown passes of 45 and 9 yards to Kaylon Kenney after Glass’ 11-yard touchdown run to put the 35-point mercy rule into effect.

California managed only one first down in the opening half.

Rochester will face Beth-Center, a 34-12 winner over Cornell in the quarterfinals.
