It wasn’t about revenge as much as it was about playing well against a quality opponent.

The Dover Tornadoes accomplished both things Friday night.

This time it’s at The Brickhouse.

Dover (1-1) will be out to avenge its only loss of the 2009 regular season when the Tornadoes entertain Canfield (1-1) at Crater Stadium Friday night.

Canfield came away with a hard-fought 22-21 double overtime win against Dover at Canfield Cardinal Stadium last year in Week 3.
