Ray Leach, the two-time all-state and All-Greater Rochester running back/linebacker, returned to the lineup on Friday to help push the Batavia Blue Devils past the Hornell Red Raiders 48-14
After having a 52-yard touchdown called back by a penalty, Leach scored on a 3-yard run to give Batavia a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. The Blue Devils took a 21-6 lead into halftime as senior quarterback Ethan Biscaro added two rushing touchdowns for the Blue Devils.
Leach suffered lacerations after a stabbing incident Aug. 4 in Batavia. Former Blue Devils teammate Antwan Odom, who also played basketball at Batavia, was charged with two felonies in connection with the incident.
