Avengers Pile It On In Huge Home Win

Avengers Pile It On In Huge Home Win

Head coach Joe Osovet came to ASA this year hoping to import an offense that routinely put up 40-plus points per game during his tenure at Nassau Community College. So, when he came to ASA this summer, it was a given he'd endure the same success.  

The Avengers averaged 25 points per game, last season, and entered Saturday's tilt with Gattica averaging 24 per game, but following their 76-12 rout over the Gators, ASA has seen it's per-game average spike to 30 points per game.    

The Gattica game was a reminder of just how potent Osovet's offense could be, as they racked up 10 touchdowns (including two pick-sixes), 172 yards passing, and 198 yards rushing. Quarterback Ryan Barabe got the scoring started when he connected with tight end Josh McCoy for a 30-yard touchdown. That was the longest scoring toss of the game, but it just got the fireworks going for the Avengers (3-6).     

ASA went on to score five-consecutive touchdowns -- including the two interceptions for touchdowns by cornerback Kennedy Ndukwe -- before Gattica got on the board. But by then, the score was 41-6 and the route was on. 

The running game, which has always been the backbone to a Osovet offense, was spearheaded by running back Wyl Miller, who tallied a game-high 103 yards on just eight carries and a 10-yard touchdown run.  

Linebacker Mike McGinnis led the defense with six tackles, two for losses, and two sacks.  

ASA will look to end its season on a two-game winning streak, as they travel to Ohio University's Peden Stadium to take on Hocking College, Saturday at 1 p.m.
