Dover Shrugs Off Big Loss Last Week To Beat Fallsburg

DOVER PLAINS – Two games into the conversion to eight-man football, Dover High School coach Casey Lorenz is still learning on the job.

“We’re all making adjustments still,” Lorenz said. “Fallsburg came out and showed something totally different on defense, something we’ve never seen.”

It took a half, but Lorenz and the Dragons figured it out.

Dover broke away from an 8-8 tie at the half with a big third quarter, and the Dragons beat the Comets, 30-14.

Dover is now 1-1 while Fallsburg dropped to 0-2.










The Dragons opened the season last week with a 50-0 loss to Tri-Valley.

“We actually got off to a really slow start again but we were able to regroup at halftime,” said Lorenz. “It’s always good to bounce back after losing like that. It just took them about six quarters to get their confidence back.”

Dover scored 30 straight points after falling behind 8-0 when Fallsburg’s Jesse Acevedo caught a 15-yard touchdown pass.

Bryce Mill threw a pair of three-yard touchdown passes, one to Griffin Langui and one to Victor St. Onge, Nick Tancredit bolted 45 yards for a score after teammate Adam Evan recovered an onsides kick attempt, and Mill finished up with an 18-yard scoring strike to Ryan Tomano.
