Trojans knock off Don Bosco
Turkey Valley remembers the sting of defeat encountered on the carpet of the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls in 2019.
And no, that pain didn’t come from a skinned-up knee or a rug burn in the 8-man state semifinal football contest two years ago — although there may have been a few bruised egos.
That wrath encountered by head coach Mark Scott’s squad came via a whooping by perennial-powerhouse Don Bosco — the 50-6 kind.
Turkey Valley returned the favor last Friday night in Gilbertville in the first game between the two teams since that ill-fated matchup that saw the Trojans play in the state semifinals for the first time.
While the score wasn’t as lopsided this time around, it was much more thrilling.
TV (2-0) came up with a huge win over Don Bosco on the road as Marcus Herold plunged into the end zone in double overtime to send the Trojans to one of the better wins in some time for Scott’s program. The final score was 48-42 and it featured a bevy of plays from key skill players on Scott’s high-rising bunch.
“It was a good win for us,” said Scott.
Herold was the second back though on a belly power play that helped him cross the goal line in the second-extra stanza. The two teams did not score in the third quarter and first overtime.
