Key players: Dover – Darian Lopez-Sullivan (3 TD passes); Concord – Matt O’Rourke (receiving TD), Divon Duncan (98 yard kick off return TD)

Highlights: The Tide offense came out strong against Dover in the first half, but the defense couldn’t contain Dover’s high-powered offense in the second half.
