Canandaigua headed to Class A Final Four after defeating South Park, 24-6

Canandaigua pulled away early Friday night and right into the Class A high school football state tournament semifinals.

The Section V champions scored two touchdowns in the first quarter and held down a high-scoring Buffalo South Park team to win 24-6 during the Far West Regionals at The College at Brockport.


Canandaigua is in the state final four round for the first time since 1999, when that team won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship.

Sophomore quarterback Bryan Boldrin connected with a wide-open Joey Urlacher for a 29-yard touchdown pass play in Canandaigua’s first possession. Buffalo South Park failed to get a first down in its second drive and punted the ball back to Canandaigua.
