The Mid Valley Spartans defeated Riverside 20-16 in a District 2 Class 2A semifinal at Riverside Veterans Memorial Stadium on Friday, Nov. 1. With the win, the Spartans will advance to the district championship game, at top-seeded Dunmore, Friday, Nov. 8.
“This goes to the community,” Mid Valley coach Dave Rebar told the Times-Tribune after last week’s victory. “It’s the first time Mid Valley has been in a district championship in school history. It’s our first playoff win since 1990. It’s about the community and these kids and what they’ve done. I’m so proud we were able to come back and do this for the community. I hope they enjoy the night.”
