Strive to excel

Tri-Valley’s Zach Nilsen shows his deft foot skills in the Bears’ first win of the season and their first win under coaching icon Erik Risher, who came from Haldane to turn the struggling T-V program north.

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.
