NEW BERLIN – An offensive explosion for both Unadilla Valley and visiting Sauquoit Valley sputtered out following the first quarter as the more consistent Storm team earned their first win in 2016, defeating SV 42-28.

Following the first half in last Friday's matchup on Oct. 21, the game looked to be a high scoring affair with Unadilla Valley racking up 27 points in the opening quarter, only to be bested by Sauquoit Valley who scored 28. That is when it all changed for the Storm.

“We moved, made an adjustment on defense, and moved a couple kids around,” said Unadilla Valley head coach Ray Dayton. “I think we were a little too emotional, calmed the kids down and then they played great.”

Unadilla Valley went on to shut out the Indians for the remaining three quarters. While the Storm offense was not as poignant as it had been in the opening quarter, the improved play of the defense proved to be just enough to help UV edge out the Indians.
