– At times it was a gritty tough night, but Tri-Valley finds itself back in the District XI championship football game.

Coach Mike Ulicny and his squad reached the title game with a 17-7 win over Pottsville Nativity Nov. 3 at Bulldog Stadium in the District XI Class A semifinal, setting themselves up for a rematch against backyard rival Williams Valley at Cardinal Stadium.

“We got win number 8 which is good and we are going to be playing for a medal next week,” Ulicny said following the game. “We are further than we were last year, and it’s not going to be easy next week, but we are in that position that we have a chance.”

Tri-Valley made its own luck at the start of the game when Nativity’s Andrew Buchinski was stripped of the ball on the second play of the game, and Tri-Valley recovered it, returning it to the Green Wave 30-yard line. With leading back Dan Scheib out for this game with an injury, the rushing game was left to junior Ike Lucas and senior Dawson Schwalm with quarterback Logan Yoder mixing it up with passing and running the ball.
