LON ZEIDERS/For The Citizen-Standard Upper Dauphin’s Donny Gelnett braces for contact with Dawgs’ ballcarrier Danny Scheib during Tri-Valley League football action on Sept. 9. Scheib scored Tri-Valley’s first touchdown en route to a 46-13 win in Elizabethville.

ELIZABETHVILLE – While the scoreboard may have said 46-13 in favor of Tri-Valley, both teams claimed a bit of a victory in their Tri-Valley League matchup at Trojan Stadium Sept. 9.
For Upper Dauphin, the game marked the first points of the season for them, coming in the second half with Tri-Valley already leading 40-0.
“We definitely made some progress tonight,” said UDA head coach Brent Bell following the game. “We drove the ball in the first half, but couldn’t get it in. We changed some things up this week, but some injuries late in the week caused us to shuffle some things again but once we have a full solid week of practice, these guys are going to come out and continue to fight this year.”
Tri-Valley struck early and often in the game. After holding Upper Dauphin to a three-and-out series in the opening possession, the Bulldogs used good field position to start at their own 45-yard line. Quarterback Logan Yoder used his passing ability along with the rushing of Danny Scheib to put together a six play, 55-yard drive, highlighted by a 32-yard reception by Ashton Buchanan and capped off with Scheib’s eight-yard run to put the Bulldogs up 7-0 with 8:01 left in the first quarter.
