We saw their Ligonier game down in Hershey on Saturday so it will be a […]

Dunmore game plan for Southern Columbia

Southern Columbia leads the State in scoring at 50.7 PPG.  Dunmore is second in scoring defense, allowing just 91 points all season. That defense and big offensive line gives the Bucks a shot against the Tigers in the ‘AA’ Eastern Finals.

Dunmore went through the first 12 games of the season pretty much untested.  But, boy did the Bucks come through after trailing Ligonier Valley by a 14-0 score last week.  Dunmore rallied to a 23-20 victory, that places them against powerful Southern Columbia in Friday’s ‘AA’ Eastern Final at Danville.  The Bucks will be underdogs, but they will be up to the challenge just like they were when they beat the Tigers in States five years ago.
