Newark's Phil Tack moves upfield quickly after separating Midlakes ballcarrier Anthony DiMariono
(on ground) from the football in the opening minutes of the third quarter Friday night. Newark built up a huge lead and eased through Homecoming night for the win, 44-9. The Reds are now 4-1;
   NEWARK, NY (SEP 28 12) -- Newark high school's football team swept to a 31-0 lead before Midlakes could score, waltzing to a 44-9 win on Homecoming tonight. Nelson Betances carried the ball 14 times for 98 yards and two touchdowns -- and caught a pass from quarterback Phil Tack for another score.

   The Reds fired up the scoreboard early, getting three touchdowns in the first quarter on a one-yard run by Rich Parker, a 65-yard toss from Tack to Micah Wright, and Betances' first foray into the end zone on a 37-yard run. Kicker Cody Cornelius got the ball through the uprights on his first try, but watched two others goe astray.
   Jaymee Rosser collected a 21-yard pass from Tack to open the Newark scoring in the second quarter, and Tack finished a fine first half by connecting with Betances on a three-yard hitch to close the first half, 31-0.
   Midlakes mounted two good drives at the outset of the second half, the first one ending deep in Newark territory when Antonio DiMariono, trying for extra yardage, had the ball punched out of his arms by Tack, who ran the fumble back 20 yards. When Newark couldn't score, Midlakes came back again with another sustained drive with Jacob Chaney finally getting his guys on the board with a 35-yard field goal.
   Tack led Newark on the only touchdown drive of the third quarter, carrying the ball himself for the last six yards. A Cornelius kick made it 38-3 at that point.
   In the final stanza, Betances finished his night with a 13-yard scoring run, and Midlakes got a touchdown across with Jaryd Graham diving into the end zone from one yard out. Chaney's point-after kick was nearly blocked by Newark and missed the mark.
   Parker ended up with 93 yards on 11 carries for Newark; Tack completed six of 10 passes for 148 yards and three touchdowns -- and he ran the ball 10 times himself, for 61 yards. Rosser caught a total of three balls for 72 yards and the TD.
   Newark will test East Rochester next Saturday night in an important away game.

It was Homecoming night in Newark, and Jordan Taney and Jon Maldonado
were named queen and king of the Homecoming Court.
