Results and game summaries from around the Monroe County Region for the first week of the high school football season.

DUNDEE — For a school with the nickname of the Jets, Airport has never been known as much of a football team that takes to the air.

That might be changing in 2016.

Senior tight end Brent Mossburg made big plays all night as the Jets soared past Dundee 31-14 in their season opener Friday night.

Mossburg made four catches for 121 yards and every one of them was crucial to the Jets.

Two dug them out of big offensive holes and the other two set up scores.

Mossburg hauled in a 27-yard pass to set up an Airport touchdown with 1:59 left in the first half, then had a fantastic snag to put the Jets in position for a for a field goal by Justin Trout just before halftime.

The Jets had a 31-8 lead at halftime and could play conservatively in the second half.

The other standout for Airport was junior running back Michael Foor, who ran for 118 yards on 19 carries. He scored the first three TDs for the Jets on runs of 16, 38 and 52 yards.

Jeska completed 4-of-9 passes for 121 yards and scored on a QB sneak.

Airport’s defense was opportunistic. Matt Ashby, Hunter Cleland and Chase Smith all recovered fumbles, Cleland, Dalton Bates and Aaron Smith were in on sacks and Foor blocked a punt.

Dundee grabbed an 8-7 lead in the first quarter, but not much went right for the Vikings after that.

Ben Miller was a bright spot for Dundee with 122 rushing yards, including a 16-yard TD run and a 2-point conversion.

Quarterback Cole Salenbien ran for the Vikings’ other TD.

Ida 51, Jefferson 26

Ida stared at a fourth down and a long 2 yards to go on its own 7-yard line early in the third quarter of Ida’s 51-26 victory over Jefferson Friday night.

With a 37-26 lead, coach Tom Walentowski elected to have quarterback Kyle Gunn attempt to draw Jefferson’s defensive line offside with a hard count.

Jefferson’s defense did not budge.

Walentowski then called a time out and everyone at Jefferson’s Marc Cisco Alumni Field expected the Blue Streaks to punt.

Everyone except Walentowski.

Instead, the 25-year veteran coach put his trust in his offensive line and his impressive running back Nick Levicki. The senior churned for four yards to pick up the first down and eventually led Ida to a touchdown.

The gutsy call proved to be a turning point as Ida went on to defeat Jefferson on a hot and steamy opening night.

The first half was a tale of two approaches. Ida used a grinding attack to put up 37 points, while Jefferson hit three big plays to garner its 26 points.

At the half, Ida had 12 first downs while Jefferson had picked up just 2.

Ida struck first after a three-and-out by the Bears midway through the first quarter. Senior Bryan Laux hit paydirt with an off-tackle 62-yard rumble.

It only took three plays for Jefferson to answer when senior quarterback Brandon Sovey darted 51 yards on a keeper.

Levicki then capped a 54-yard, 10-play drive to score from 7 yards out.

Jefferson fumbled the ensuing kick and Ida recovered on the Bears’ 18-yard line. Four plays later, Laux drove in from 4 yards out to give Ida a 13-6 lead after one quarter.

The Bears roared back with a 41-yard scampber by Sovey.

The topsy-turvy contest tilted the Blue Streaks’ way when Gunn hit senior Kyle Parran with a circus play. Parran caught the pass from Gunn and attempted to lateral the ball. However, he then recovered his own lateral to eventually score on a 61-yard play.

The big play Bears rebounded in a huge way on the following possession when senior Nick Humphrey bolted 56 yards to score. Sovey then capped the second stanza with a 69-yard sprint around the edge to pull the Bears within 3.

Following a 1-yard run by senior Andrew Oberski, the first half scoring came to a halt. Levicki rushed for 180 yards on the night with his 25 carries.

The second half did not resemble the muscular soap opera that was evident in the first half as Ida held the Bears’ scoreless. It didn’t help Jefferson’s quick-scoring offense that Sovey was not able to play in the second half because of an injury.

Sovey led the Bears in rushing with 161 yards, while Humphrey gained 140.

Humphrey led Jefferson with 19 tackles, while Devon Rozmiarek was credited with 13 and Cameron Smith picked up 12.

Summerfield 31, Erie Mason 6

PETERSBURG – Summerfield’s offense was sputtering, so a defensive player stepped up.

Senior linebacker John Heisler stripped a ball from an Erie Mason ballcarrier, then picked up the fumble near the goal line to set up a Summerfield touchdown just before the half.

That gave the Bulldogs the spark they needed to pull out their season opener 31-6 Friday night.

Mason held a 6-0 lead before Heisler’s strip and recover set up a 1-yard TD run by Summerfield quarterback Trent Schankin right before the intermission. A conversion run by Schankin gave the Bulldogs an 8-6 lead.

Summerfield used its momentum in the second half to add TD runs of 33 and 68 yards by Chase Pirolli. The final Bulldog tally came on a 4-yard run by Anthony Christunas.

Pirolli wound up with 157 rushing yards.

Heisler racked up 15 tackles and Chris Bucher, Cal Olmstead and Christunas added 9 each.

Oehlers had two more touchdowns in the second quarter, Joey Wiemer connected with Gabe Caris for a 29-yard touchdown pass and Wes Doxsie kicked an 18-yard field goal.

Jared Nanney added an 18-yard TD run in the third period to give Bedford a 44-7 lead before St. Francis tacked on two meaningless scores in the final quarter.

Wiemer ran for 119 yards and threw for 101. Oehlers racked up 95 yards on the ground and Shepherd intercepted two passes and broke up another.

Livonia Churchill 42, Monroe 13

LIVONIA — Four plays into Friday night’s 42-13 loss to Livonia Churchill, the Monroe Trojans found themselves without a starting quarterback.
