Strive to excel
In football, Liberty came up just one point shy of upsetting defending Class C Champ O’Neill as the Indians failed on a potential game-winning two-point conversion play from the 1 1/2 yard line, in the game’s waning seconds. The final score was 21-20. Tri-Valley’s young Bears were taken to the school of hard knocks by Chester to the tune of 56-0, while Monticello got shellacked 35-0 by Cornwall. On the winning side of the ledger, Roscoe/Manor/Downsville defeated Eldred 23-12 for its first win of the season. Brad Dreher rushed for two TD’s. Eldred’s Julian Gottlieb and Nick Warren scored for the Yellow Jackets. For albums of photos visit, www.sportsinsights.smugmug.com.
