Dundee takes sectional championship, beats DeSales 29-22

ROCHESTER—The Dundee Scots gave DeSales more football in the second half of the sectional title game Saturday, Oct. 30 than they could handle. The halftime score was 14-6 with DeSales in the lead. In the first half, it seemed like the Scots just couldn’t find their footing. The second half was a different story. The Scots scored 23 points in the half to win a thrilling Section V Class D championship 29-22 at the Marina Auto Stadium for the third time in as many years.
Dundee (9-0) now plays the Section V Class DD champion, Caledonia-Mumford (8-1), in a state tournament qualifier, 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 5 at Marina Auto Stadium.
Coach Sheldon Gibson said Caledonia-Mumford is a powerful running team and has a history of success. He added, “we’ll have to bring our ‘A Game.’”
The Dundee scoring started with a 24 yard pass from Nick Raplee to Kyke Spinks. In the second half, Joe Tortolon took a 12 yard pass from Raplee for a touchdown and then Max Gorton rushed for the two-point conversion. Raplee scored on a six-yard run with 9:27 left in the third quarter. And then in the fourth quarter, Nick Raplee put the Scots ahead with a touchdown from three yards out and Tortolon added a two-point conversion that delighted the hundreds of Dundee fans who came out for the game.
“We had a plan and stuck with it,” said Gibson.
He said DeSales was a different team from the one Dundee faced four weeks ago. Gibson explained DeSales came ready to play.
The Scots rushed 27 times in the game for a total of 142 yards. Passing yards for the afternoon were 107 with a total offensive linage of 249 yards.
Dundee received the Section V championship trophy at the end of the game and several individual awards were also presented. Nick Raplee was named the Most Valuable Player, Kyle Spinks was awarded Outstanding Offensive Lineman,Max Gorton was presented with the Outstanding Defensive Back spot and Katie Zebrowski earned the Sportmanship Award.
“It was a good win for the team and community,” said Gibson.
