High school football in the Sentinelís coverage area
officially ended last weekend as Tri-Valley and Millersburg fell in
their respective district playoff games Nov. 20.
The Dawgsí storybook season, which included a second
place finish in the Tri-Valley League, ended with a shutout loss in
the District 11-A championship game, while the Indians dropped a
first-round game in the District 3-A playoffs, becoming the third
local squad in 2015 to fall victim to Camp Hillís potent offensive
attack. (See separate article this week.)
Marian Catholic 33, Tri-Valley 0. The Bulldogs fell
behind third-seeded Marian Catholic early in the District 11-A
championship game in Hegins and were never able to recover.
The Dawgs had trouble stopping the Coltsí K.J. Snerr, who ran the ball 23
times for 185 yards Ė two more yards than Tri-Valley gained all night
offensively (183). Snerr scored on three rushing touchdowns, and caught one
pass for a fourth.
The Bulldog offense struggled all night, collecting just seven total first
downs to Marianís 17.
Tri-Valley quarterback Jaden Buchanan was his teamís most significant
offensive contributor. The senior signal-caller ran the ball 21 times for 96
yards, and added four completions for an additional 32 yards.
Chase Schaeffer added 51 rushing yards on five carries for the Dawgs.
