Lions get physical, overwhelm Wheeler in the second half (photo gallery included)

VERNON â€” If Denney Faith’s Albany football team has a trade mark, it could be argued that physicality would top that list. 

So when the veteran coach wasn’t getting what his team normally delivers in the first half of Friday’s 48-27 win over Wheeler, one may say that he and his staff gently pointed out that fact at halftime with his team trailing 21-14. 

Or perhaps … not so gently. 

Whatever Faith and his assistants said in the locker room drove the point home, and the Lions responded by completely dominating the second half of the Region II-2A Division II semifinal â€” outscoring Wheeler 34-7 over the final two quarters.
