Dover Tornadoes Team News

After facing predominantly passing and running football teams the past two weeks, the Dover Tornadoes will get a little dose of both Friday night.

Dover (2-1) will host undefeated Tri-Valley (3-0) in a nonconference clash at Crater Stadium.

DOVER  In a continued effort to involve the Dover Public Library with the community, Jim Gill looked to something he knows a bit about.


 Dover High football coach Dan Ifft had a unique way of looking at the Tornadoes’ tough 43-42 loss at Canfield Friday night.

CANFIELD  The only two meetings between Dover and Canfield were exciting contests with the home team coming out on top in each one.

Friday night was no different.

It’s the third straight season the Division III Tornadoes have tangled with the Division II Cardinals.

A pretty tough one.

Especially the ones that kick off the home part of season.

Dover’s home opener was surrounded by plenty of pomp and circumstance.

DOVER  It was a war of attrition at hot and muggy Crater Stadium on Friday night. And Dover won.
