Aurora — The Greenmen needed only one half to assert their dominance over host Revere on Sept. 12.
Improving to 3-0 on the season, they beat the Minutemen 35-2 in a game that was called off at halftime because of lightning in the far distance to the north.
Aurora got another huge game from junior quarterback George Bollas, who accounted for four touchdowns – two through the air and two on the ground.
Bollas threw for 170 yards on 8 of 14 with two touchdowns, and ran for another 125 yards on 10 carries. And while Bollas and the offense were rolling along, the defense was playing just as well.
The stingy Greenmen unit allowed only 82 yards in the first half while their offense picked up 345 yards.
Juniors Ryan Devine had 8 tackles, including a sack and an interception, junior Mike Stratton added six tackles and Joe Dinardo had an interception.
Aurora raced out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to scoring runs by Bollas of 26 and 10 yards. In between those scores, senior Romel Pollard added a 13-yard touchdown scamper.
About the only blemish on the night for the Greenmen came on a punt attempt in the second quarter. With the locals deep in their own territory, the snap went over the punter’s head and out of the endzone for a safety.
In the second quarter, Bollas struck for two scores, with his arm. He tossed 66-yards to senior Kirk Janoch and 18-yards to senior Andrew Rinicella. Janoch finished with 102 yards receiving.
The game was played on a Thursday night and head coaches and athletic directors from both schools decided to call the game at halftime rather than endure a lengthy delay or finish the game another day.
Aurora head coach Bob Mihalik said it was a great way to end the non-conference season.
“It was good to get a win and end our non-conference schedule undefeated,” he said. “We now start Phase 2 of our season with CVC Chagrin Division games.”
First up on the conference schedule could be the game of the year, and could go a long way in deciding who will win the CVC in 2013, as the Greenmen host Chagrin Falls at Veterans Stadium.
