  • After losing their last two games, the Dover Senators bounced back with a huge 59-28 victory over Smyrna on Friday night.
    Dover scored a whopping 31 points on the Eagles in the first quarter. Smyrna would try to claw back, posting 12 points before the half. However, Dover countered with seven of their own in the quarter to take a 38-12 lead into the break.
    The two squads matched each other, score-for-score, for most of the second half but Smyrna wasn't able to gain any substantial ground. And more importantly, the Smyrna defense had no answers for the Senators air attack.
    Dover QB Ian Gory threw for 6 touchdown passes, three of which found the sure-handed Jordon Robinson.
    For Smyrna, RB Maurice McFolling-Nichols did his part to keep the Eagles in it, scoring 3 rushing touchdowns.
    The victory for Dover was one they needed badly after having dropped their last two games to St. Mark's and Salesianum.
    Smyrna drops a game after winning two straight (against Laurel & Brandywine), they'll travel to take on Woodbridge (0-4) next Friday.
    The Senators will travel south to take on Sussex Central (3-1) next Friday.
