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.
