Buc’s fall to Senators during Dover Homecoming

By Sean Marraffini

Coming off their homecoming victory against Mount Pleasant, the Bucs looked for win number two. It was not to be, as a talented Dover team gave their homecoming crowd a 38-13 victory.

After a 55-54 victory against Cape Henlopen, the Senators went right back to their winning ways. Scoring their opening touchdown half way through the first quarter. After the extra point Dover was up 7-0.

The Bucs responded shortly after scoring a touchdown with 2 minutes to go in the first quarter making it a tie game, 7-7. The ensuing Senators drive lead to a field goal and a narrow 10-7 lead. From there it was mostly all Dover who lead 31-7 at half time.

“We couldn’t get into a track meet with them.” Head coach mike Tkack said. “Coach has some wonderful athletes over there.”

In the fourth quarter the Bucs would find the end zone again when a rushing play got them their second touchdown. A missed PAT left Dover with a 38-13 lead, which is how the game would end, but not before Vance Daniels would intercept a pass from the Dover QB as time expired.

“My kid’s didn’t quit, they played hard, but we have to get ready for Caesar Rodney next week.” Tkack said. Milford has another away game in Dover this week on Friday, October 28 at Caesar Rodney. Game time is 7:30 pm.
