Dover followed up their victory over Cape Henlopen with a homecoming win over the Milford Buccaneers Friday night. Five different Senators found the end zone on way to a 38-13 win for Dover.

Dover opened up the scoring mid-way through the first quarter when quarterback Nick Spadafino found Jordon Robinson for the score to make it 7-0 Senators.

Milford tied the game up on their next possession, a series that was kept alive by a Dover off-sides penalty. However, the rest of the game would belong to Dover and their high-powered offense. Dover would score 24 unanswered points in the second half, taking a 31-7 lead going into halftime.

After a scoreless third quarter, Dover’s Deon Wright would punch in a one-yard touchdown on the second play of the fourth quarter to make it 38-7 Senators. A few minutes later a blocked Dover punt by Milford would lead to their second score, after a missed extra point the score was 38-13 Dover.

The Dover defense was noticeably improved after giving up 54 points last week to Cape Henlopen. The Senators gave up a touchdown after being drawn off-sides on a Milford fourth down in the first quarter, and were put in a bad position after a blocked punt in the fourth quarter, which also led to points.

As we head down the home stretch the Senators find themselves at 5-2 for the year, with only three games remaining in the regular season. Next week Dover will head south to Georgetown to take on the Sussex Tech Ravens.
