After two straight tough losses, the Buckskins came into Friday’s game against Solanco looking for a rebounding performance. That didn’t happen. The Golden Mules dominated en route to a 37-0 defeat for Conestoga Valley, their second straight shutout loss.

In the first half, Solanco scored 2 touchdowns on their first 2 possessions, which put the Buckskins in a deep hole early. Sophomore QB Liam Cheek, who started in place of the injured Macoy Kneisley, struggled alongside the entire CV offense, as they didn’t score at all in the first 2 quarters of play. The Golden Mules would add another touchdown to make it a 3-score game before the half concluded.

While the Mules kept scoring in the second half, a new face appeared on the Buckskin offense. Freshman QB Garrett Daniels entered the game in the third quarter and played remarkably well with little preparation. Solanco added 2 more touchdowns in the back half of the game to run away with a 37-0 victory in a game that was never close. The loss drops the Buckskins down to 3-6 on the season, and 1-3 in their section. Up next, CV plays host to the Warwick Warriors at home for the final game of the season.
