PINE PLAINS, TRI-VALLEY SET FOR SHOWDOWN

Both Teams Advance To Eight-Man League Finals

HYDE PARK – Well, this might have been the wildest, most exciting first quarter of high school football this season.

Tri-Valley and Roscoe combined for 52 points, with the Bears leading 30-22.

And Tri-Valley never stopped scoring.

Keegan Streimer had a phenomenal day with eight touchdowns – six rushing and two passing – as the Bears recorded a 72-30 victory in a Section 9 Eight-Man League semifinal game at neutral Roosevelt High School.

T-V will be right back there again on Saturday, November 3, at 3 p.m. to play Pine Plains for the championship. The Bombers beat Pawling in overtime, 40-38, as Andrew Holsopple scored a two-point conversion while Pine Plains’ defense turned back Pawling’s conversion try.

Holsopple threw for 212 yards and two scores while rushing for 117 yards. Kyle Stracher had 175 yards on the ground, Luke Imperato had caught three balls for 133 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown, and  Evan Proper had a whopping 17 tackles on defense.

“Overall, this was a slugfest. Both teams came out and physically beat up on one another,” Pine Plains coach Rob Scott said in an email. “This was the best football game I, as a coach, have ever been involved in. Both teams showed a great deal of heart, were well-disciplined, and left their hearts out on the field.”

Pine Plains lost to Tri-Valley by 10 two weeks ago and will have to contend with Streimer, who went berserk in the semifinals. In leading the Bears to 619 yards in total offense, Streimer had 124 yards passing and 238 yards rushing.

Teammate Alex Schultz rushed for 111 yards.

Roscoe’s Erick Hill went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the season with 130 yards on the ground.

“Our defensive coordinator Jon Allison was able to make some adjustments and we started finally getting stops on defense,” Tri-Valley coach Greg Botsford said after noting that Roscoe caught his team by surprise with new formations and passing attack. “We were able to get some timely turnovers which also helped turn the tide. Fortunately, our offensive line and tight ends ( Jake Allison, Devin Mullen, Colby Costa and Joey Schulte) blocked extremely well and our quarterback Keegan Streimer made good reads to allow us to keep pace early, and then eventually pull away.”
