Upper Dauphin wears down Juniata in TVL victory

ELIZABETHVILLE — In three of its last four games, Upper Dauphin’s offens managed to score a total of just 20 points, all three of which the Trojans lost.

In Friday’s Tri-Valley League matchup with Juniata, Upper Dauphin’s offense woke up in a big way. But with the way the Indians played to start the contest, the Trojans needed to be on their game.

With a punishing ground attack led by senior tailback Trey Campbell and senior quarterback Mac Ney, Upper Dauphin wore down Juniata and pulled away for a 43-31 victory at Trojans Stadium.

In the first quarter alone, Upper Dauphin (3-3, 2-3 TVL) scored 21 points, which was more than the Trojans had scored in their three losses combined.

However, it was Juniata (2-4, 2-3) that got on the board first, and the Indians did it quickly.

On the team’s second play from scrimmage, Juniata quarterback Tyler Clark hooked up with Corey Graybill for a 64-yard touchdown pass.

Upper Dauphin also didn’t waste much time to reach the endzone for the first time. On the second play of the Trojans’ opening series, Cameron Fornwald ran for a 36-yard touchdown run.

Two minutes later the Trojans found the endzone again, this time Ney ran for a 39-yard score.

The rest of the first quarter swung back and forth for both teams — first Juniata got a one-yard touchdown run by Josh Newcamp before Upper Dauphin scored again on a 30-yard pass from Ney to Tanner Miller to give the Trojans a 21-14 lead with 1:37 remaining.

The Indians then opened the second quarter much the same way they started the first, as Chad Eberle dashed off a 51-yard touchdown run just 2:25 into the period.

An untimely interception thrown by Ney in the ensuing Upper Dauphin possession gave the ball right back to Juniata 13 yards away from the Trojans end of the field. Two plays later Josh Parson pounded it in from three yards out for a 28-21 lead.

The second half was a different story for both teams, especially for Upper Dauphin.

The Trojans scored three times in the second half, all on runs by Campbell.

Campbell scored from 30 yards out on his first touchdown before he scored from five yards out the next two times to finish with 144 yards on 24 carries.

Ney added 102 yards on the ground to give the Trojans a total of 354 rushing yards.

Juniata amassed just 82 yards on the ground, but Clark completed 9-of-17 passes for 242 yards for the Indians.
