``AVON -- The ride down started for the Wildcats when Avon kicked an onside kick to start the game and recovered it for a first down on the Keystone 48.

That boost ignited the Avon offense and Eagle tailback Dan Siegfried went on a scoring spree. He scored four touchdowns in the first half to lead the Eagles to an easy 40-13 win over Keystone in last night's rain-soaked Lorain County Conference contest.

With the win, Avon improved to 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the league. The Wildcats slipped to 1-4 and 0-2.

Siegfried's first touchdown, a 1-yard run, put the Eagles up 7-0 with 9:51 left in the first quarter ...

Avon quarterback Jason O'Rourke found Sean Graver for a 34-yard TD strike to take advantage after a Keystone fumble gave the Eagles the ball on the Cats 34-yard line with 8:47 to go in the first.

''We've definitely made a lot of improvements,'' Avon coach Lee Powell said. ''Jason O'Rourke played a great game and Siggy (Siegfried) ran the ball very well. In the second half we moved the chains when we needed to.'' ...

Siegfried, in addition to his four scores, led all rushers with 123 yards.''
