Otter eleven drops finale

BENNINGTON — The Otter Valley Union High School football season ended on Friday night with a 32-24 loss to host Mount Anthony in the Division II wild card game between two teams that failed two qualify for the postseason. MAU finished at 3-6, and OV at 1-8.
MAU quarterback Caleb Hay threw for 306 yards — a program record — including touchdown passes of 90 and 87 yards to Cole Bushee, who caught five passes for 224 yards, also a program record. 
MAU led at the break, 19-0, but OV, which tacked on two-point conversions to each of three TDs, made it 19-8 with a 21-yard fumble return.
The teams then traded scores, with OV scoring on a 9-yard pass from senior QB Tyler Rowe to Nate Hudson and a 3-yard Rowe run. That TD came with 1:08 left in the game, and MAU recovered an onside kick to seal the win.
