BYESVILLE – Dover’s dominance over Meadowbrook continues.

Dover exploded for 35 first-quarter points and never looked back as it downed Meadowbrook for the 16th straight time and claimed its 17th win in 18 meetings with a convincing 66-7 East Central Ohio League football victory here Friday night.

If the high school football playoffs began tonight, the Dover Tornadoes would be on the outside looking in.

And Dover coach Dan Ifft knows the Tornadoes need to keep on winning for a chance to play in the postseason.

The first obstacle is getting a win against host Meadowbrook (1-6) in an East Central Ohio League clash at Byesville Friday night.
