The world has certainly changed quite a bit since 2010. But at Jack Anderson Stadium, Tri-Valley football fans have gotten used to watching their Scottie’s dominate MVL opponents for the past six years, that all changed tonight.

Tri-Valley’s 47-game winning streak against MVL opponents was snapped tonight as the Scotties fell to the Sheridan Generals 42-24 thanks to a dominating performance by senior quarterback Dylan Dupler.

Dupler showed why he is a Gridiron Glory Player of the Year Candidate, as he scored five of the Generals six touchdowns, four on the ground and one through the air. While Dupler threw for 134 yards off of six completions, he made the Scotties defensive line pay as he picked up 221 yards on the ground.

The lack of experience against tough opponents was evident as the Tri-Valley defense was picked apart by Dupler and his stout offensive line. This General’s offense was clearly on a different level than the other offenses the Scotties have seen this season; Sheridan was the first team with a winning record Tri-Valley has faced in 2016.

In their first seven games, the Scotties held their opponents to a combined 38 points, which is also the amount of points their offense averaged a game. Despite their dominating performance so far this season, Sheridan was able to create 488 yards of total offense tonight.

Despite beating the Tri-Valley defense took tonight, there was an offensive bright spot in the performance of junior quarterback Andrew Newsom. Newsom ran in all three of the Scottie’s touchdowns and finished with 302 total yards.

After this convincing win by the Generals, the race for the MVL championship has gotten even closer. The Scotties and the Generals are now tied for second place in the MVL with 6-1 records against conference opponents. After beating New Lexington 33-0 the Philo Electrics now hold sole possession of the top seed with their undefeated record against MVL teams.

If the Scotties want to win their sixth straight MVL championship they are going to have to win the rest of their games, which includes a matchup at Philo to end the regular season. They will need to step up their defensive line and let Newsom do what he does best, find the endzone.
