Lockport Rampage players had a lot to celebrate tonight, beating the Southern Tier Diesel 37-0 at Outwater Park. (PHOTOS BY SCOTT LEFFLER / ENP STAFF)

It was a total domination on both sides of the ball — with special teams pitching in as well — as the Lockport Rampage shut out the Southern Tier Diesel 37-0 at Outwater Park.

Through the air and on the ground, the Lockport Rampage marched up and
down the field nearly unscathed.
The Rampage kicked off the scoring with a touchdown with 35 seconds to play in the first quarter. A missed extra point left the score at 6-0. The Rampage doubled it to 12-0 with 3:46 to go in the second. Again, the point after the touchdown was unsuccessful. The Rampage got the ball back with just under a minute to play and made the Diesel pay, scoring — and getting the extra point.

Following a pair of mis-steps by the Rampage, they got back into the swing of things and returned to domination. A pair of fourth-down mistakes saw the Rampage pick up the first down and then fumble — and be the victim of an interception. Then the home team picked off Southern Tier and a few plays later, made it 25-0. An attempted two-point conversion, however, failed.

The Rampage celebrates one of their six touchdowns in their victory over 
the Southern Tier Diesel.

In the fourth quarter, Jeremy Brown took a punt all the way, putting Lockport up 31-0. AJ Cleveland then made it 37-0 taking an interception into the end zone.

Rampage Head Coach James Mount said he was impressed by his team but noted that there's still more to work on.

The Rampage next plays June 6 when the Jamestown Chiefs come to Outwater Park for another game under the lights.

The lights almost didn't come on for tonight's game. Although they were to be turned on before the game, the lights and scoreboard didn't make an appearance until the start of the second half. The appearance of the scoreboard allowed for music to be played through the sound system in between plays, getting the crowd more into the game.
