Recap: Tri-Valley Shuts Out Sheridan For 34-0 Victory [VIDEO]< < Back to
Jack Anderson Stadium in Dresden was packed in pink for breast cancer awareness and the hometown Tri-Valley Scotties thrived is the electric atmosphere, taking down the Sheridan Generals 34-0.
Sheridan (6-2, 4-2 MVL) entered this game hoping to give Tri-Valley (8-0, 6-0 MVL) their first loss of the season. This rich rivalry was poised to be a hard-fought football game, however the Scotties dominated in every facet of the game.
The Scotties defense shut down the Sheridan offense, as the Generals offense could not build any momentum on the field. Sheridan did not pick up a first down until there was just one minute left in the second quarter. The Generals’ top running back, Levi Wray, ended the night with just 42 yards on only 15 carries. Collectively Sheridan had 106 yards on the night compared to Tri-Valleys 361 total yards.
The Generals also had five turnovers on the night—three interceptions and two fumbles. The Generals offense has struggled since losing their starting quarterback, Luke Fox, to a shoulder injury. Dylan Dupler has since stepped in to fill the role, but has not played as well as he could have liked. He ended the night going 5-of-10 passing for just 30 yards and three interceptions.
On the other side of the ball, the Scotties offense barreled down the field with ease throughout much of the game. Early in the first quarter they converted on a long third down with a 66-yard pass from quarterback Brock Fargus to Trever Dickson. That pass lead to a Logan Bash touchdown run to give Tri-Valley a lead 7-0 with 5:54 left in the first quarter.
Fargus continued to dominate through the air, and only a couple minutes later Fargus bombed a 72-yard touchdown pass to Bubby Scott making it 13-0 Scotties with 3:06 left in the quarter. Fargus finished the game 12-of-19 for 219 yards through the air, with three touchdowns and one interception. Scott gained a total of 137 all-purpose yards and scored two touchdowns.
Tri-Valley found the end zone twice more in the second half, including a drive where the Scotties picked off the Generals for the third time. Fargus then threw a swift 5-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Mohler bringing the score to 27-0 with 3:55 left in third.
On paper this game seemed to be one of the best MVL matchups of the season, but on the field it was a different ball game. Next Friday Tri-Valley will take on Maysville (9-0, 7-0 MVL) to determine who will be the lone undefeated team left in the MVL. Sheridan will travel to Crooksville (4-4, 2,4 MVL).
