Le Roy extended its winning streak over Warsaw to 35 straight games with a win on Homecoming, 41-21.
The king of the night however, was junior Ryan McQuillen, who scored on three special teams plays.
The Knights got off to a slow start; as Warsaw struck first on a 30-yard scamper on 4th-and-17 from Colin Royce to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.
Le Roy immediately responded as McQuillen fielded the ensuing kickoff and took it 72 yards for the game-tying touchdown.
The Oatkan Knight defense locked down the Warsaw offense for much of the rest of the game, forcing eight consecutive punts by the Tigers.
Meanwhile, Le Roy found the end zone on four more plays of 35 yards or more.
Junior Quarterback Mike McMullen hit Jon Pierce on a 72-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter to take a lead they would never surrender.
Two minutes later Peter Privitera would cap off a seven-play, 35-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge.
McQuillen would strike again, this time taking a 35-yard punt to the end zone to give Le Roy a 27-7 lead.
McMullen would hit another long touchdown pass, this time a 78-yard bomb to Steve Cappotelli to end the half, up 33-7.
After the two teams would trade punts to start the second half, McQuillen once again took control, returning his second punt of the night for a score, this time from 57 yards out, giving Le Roy a 41-7 lead.
Warsaw would add two touchdowns to end the game, making the final score 41-21.
McQuillen finished the game with 227 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns on the night.
McMullen finished 5-of-13 passing for 166 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Meanwhile, Privitera once again led the rushing attack, finishing with 59 yards on 14 attempts and a touchdown.
Kody Lamkin had two sacks on defense for Le Roy (4-0), who will play at Avon next Friday.
Royce led the way for the Tigers (0-4), with 65 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
