OV football rallies to nip Fairfax, 54-42
FAIRFAX – The Otter Valley Union High School football team outscored host BFA-Fairfax by 20-7 in Saturday’s second half to come away with a 54-42 Division III victory. The result left both teams at 1-1.
A key sequence came with OV leading, 48-42, late in the game, but Fairfax driving for a potential tying or go-ahead score. OV defender Derek Bassette picked off a Bullet pass deep in Otter turf, and soon afterward OV running back Carson Leary ran 90 yards for the clinching touchdown.
OV quarterback John Winslow sparked the attack with six touchdown passes and more than 300 yards passing and also rushed for a TD.
Leary rushed for two scores and well over 100 yards, and receiver Joe Scarborough caught three TD passes.
OV coach Jim Hill credited the work of an offensive line — including Tyler Allen, Adam Sherwin, Trevor Peduto, M.J. Denis and Hunter Birchmore — that has allowed the Otters to rack up 98 points in their first two games.
Fairfax’s Luke Langelier ran for three TDs and 150 yards, and Matt Larose also rushed for 150 yards and caught a TD pass. Fairfax will visit Mount Abraham (2-0) in another D-III matchup on Saturday.
