---- — By The Daily Item


NEWPORT -- Upper Dauphin scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to come back and beat Newport, 26-21, in a Tri-Valley League game on Monday.

Cole Reed ran for a one-yard score early in the fourth quarter before Mac Ney had a five-yard touchdown run with 5:48 remaining.

Ney followed up his touchdown with a successful two-point conversion run for the Trojans, who failed on the conversion run following Reed's touchdown.

With help from Reed and Ney, Upper Dauphin (3-4, 2-4 TVL) ran for more than 200 yards in the game. Trey Campbell led the Trojans with 151 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Campbell scored on a 10-yard run in the first quarter and a four-yard run in the second.

Newport (4-3, 3-3) got 283 passing yards and two touchdowns from Justin Temple.


n Danville 1,

Warrior Run 1 (OT)

TURBOTVILLE -- The Defenders' Lynn Vermilya scored with just three seconds left in regulation to knot up the game, but the HAC cross-over matchup ended in a tie.

Sarah Weber scored unassisted for the Ironmen with 4:56 left.

Despite tying Warrior Run, Danville (8-6-2) qualifies for the District 4 tournament as the Ironmen have just two games left in the regular season -- at Mifflinburg today and at Selinsgrove on Thursday.

The Ironmen haven't appeared in the district tournament since 2004.


n Lewisburg 1, Danville 0

DANVILLE -- One of the last obstacles of completing a perfect season was overcome by the Green Dragons, as Calvin Reif scored unassisted late in the first half to give Lewisburg the HAC-I win.

Logan Cho also got the shutout for Lewisburg, which improves to 16-0, 12-0 in league play.

Danville falls to 10-5 overall.

n Shikellamy 1,

Mifflinburg 1 (2 OT)

SUNBURY -- Less than five minutes after the Wildcats broke through in the scoring column, the Braves did the same to tie the HAC-I matchup that ended in a deadlock.

Mifflinburg (5-11-1) took a 1-0 lead in the 63rd minute when Andrew Leitzel scored on a direct kick.

Five minutes and five seconds later, Anthony Valesquez connected off a Seth Burk cross to tie the game for Shikellamy (10-4-2, 8-3-1 HAC-I), which held decisive edges in both shots and corners versus Mifflinburg.

"We dominated the game, but we couldn't pull out the last goal to win," said Braves coach Jon Steese.
