Leopards Can’t Funnel Win Against Tornadoes 28-7 – Freshman Football
Dover 28, Louisville 7
Runningback Riston Jones scored the only Leopards touchdown on a 1 yard run with 6:36 left in the fourth quarter. Earlier in the drive Louisville faced a 4th-and-6 at midfield. Quarterback Connor Adelman pump faked left and then went over the middle to Wide Receiver Zack Seaman for a gain of 16 to keep the drive alive. On the next play, Adelman ran though the middle of the field off play action for a gain of 28 to setup goal-to-go. Three plays later Jobes scored to cut the deficit to 21-7.
Dover answered back with a 65 yard touchdown drive to seal the game. Tornadoes Quarterback Ayden Hall found Jordan Heaston for a 13 yard touchdown on 4th-and-4. That final score made it 28-7 with 2:35 left in the contest.
Hall also scored three rushing touchdowns earlier to build a 21-0 third quarter Dover lead. Hall scored twice in the second quarter from 7 and 4 yards out before scoring on a 21 yard run with 1:53 left in the third quarter.
The Leopards defense recorded two takeaways in the game. On the Tornadoes first possession, Louisville’s Cameron Brazek stripped the ball carrier and Adelman scooped up the fumble returning it 17 yards to the Dover 40. Brazek was also the instigator in the Leopards other takeaway midway through the third quarter. Brazek hurried the quarterback and the ball floated down the right sideline and into the arms of Myles Lab.
Maddox Walter led the Tornadoes special teams and defensive efforts. In the second quarter, he blocked a punt to setup Dover’s second scoring drive at the Louisville 39. Later on in the third, Walter stepped in front of a Leopard pass and returned the interception 29 yards to the Louisville 45. The Tornadoes would capitalize on that turnover with their third touchdown of the game to make it 21-0.
UP NEXT: The Leopards Freshman will next travel to face the South Range Raiders on Thursday, October 11. Game time is set for 5:00 PM from Rominger Sports Complex.
