EDEN, N.Y.- Three time defending Section VI champion Alden avoided a major upset against Eden on Saturday, winning 22-15.
Alden scored the first two touchdowns of the game, but Eden quarterback Nicholas Sarratori kept his team in it. Sarratori threw a touchdown and rushed for a score late which gave Eden 15-14 lead with nearly two minutes left.
Alden then came down the field quickly and scored the game winning touchdown with running back Lyle Grant scoring on a 15-yard run.
Alden starts the season 2-0 and plays Hutch Tech next week under the Friday night lights.
