Stevenson 20, Lebanon Valley 14
The Mustangs finally got a game on home turf this past Saturday and improved to 3-0, hanging on to beat the Dutchmen. SU played about as well as I've ever seen them play in taking a 20-0 halftime lead. At the start of the second half, a Mustang back dashed some 70 yards for a touchdown, but the play was nullified for holding. It was an omen. LVC scored on two second-half drives, the last of which was a 9- or 10-minute marathon of a march. Thereafter, it was a simple manner of fending the Dutchmen off. The Mustangs drained five extremely important minutes off the clock in the late going with their running attack, and a final LVC pass was intercepted to ice matters.
Stevenson is on the road for the next two weeks. I'm hoping for a split before the next home game on my birthday, Oct. 18.
