Scarsdale cruised to an overpowering 45-7 win over Mamaroneck in yesterday's class AA matchup at White Plains High School.

Despite not being shut out, Mamaroneck still has a lot of questions and corrections to make if they want to turn things around this season.

"Hats off to Scarsdale today," Mamaroneck head coach Anthony Vitti said. "They left us searching for answers after this game and we've got to work to find them."

Scarsdale bounced back from last week's loss—its first of the season—with near flawless execution and sheer dominance.

The offense was clicking with the passing tandem of quarterback Brian Bauersfeld and wideout Matt Wheeler. Combine that with a a diverse running game and a defense that only allowed Mamaroneck into the red zone once in the first half and you get a predictable result.

Bauersfeld got Scarsdale going early with his arm as he set up both of Scarsdale's first two touchdowns. Johan Drakes and Matt Freihofner scored the first two touchdowns for Scarsdale.

The for the next two scores, Bauersfeld found Will Hewitt on a 30-yard touchdown pass and then Matt Wheeler on a 60-yard deep route to bring the score to 28-0 with 21 seconds remaining in the first quarter.

"This was a big game for us coming off last week's loss and this game was against our rivals," said Bauersfeld, who finished the game 8-for-12 for 229 yards and three passing touchdowns. "It was very important to get back on track with Fox Lane coming into town (this) Friday and playoff implications possibly at stake."

Scarsdale would tack on another score before the half on a 35-yard interception return by Frank Frehill  -- his second of three picks for the game --  to push the score to 35-0. Bauersfeld and Wheeler would connect for another TD on the first possession of the second half and Scarsdale would follow up with a successful 39-yard field goal try by kicker Eric Perfetti which would extend the lead to 45-0.

"The offense wasn't clicking at all least week but I thought today Brian (Bauersfeld) stepped up and really spread the ball around," said Wheeler, who finished the game with five receptions for 160 yards and two TD. "Brian and I go back to 7th grade so he knows where I'm going to be on the field and he just finds me. We really sent a message today that we mean business and hopefully this will carry us into the next game against Fox Lane."

Mamaroneck's offense never got going. The Tigers finally found the end zone with 5:43 left in the third quarter when backup quarterback Parker Thelander found senior wideout Dean Chiapparelli on a 11-yard touchdown pass for Mamaroneck's lone score.
