Dennis-Yarmouth 21, Bedford 14

Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013, at South Yarmouth

For the fourth time this postseason, Dennis-Yarmouth began a game with its high-powered offense looking slightly lost. After going 0-for-3 in his team's first series and four-and-out twice in the first quarter, D-Y quarterback Spencer Tyler had the hot hand in the second. Highlighted by a 70-yard touchdown pass from Tyler to receiver Michael Dunn, the Dolphins erupted for 21 points in the second quarter before its defense clamped down for a 21-14 win over Bedford in the Division 4 Eastern Mass. title game. The Dolphins (9-2) have won seven in a row heading into their Thanksgiving Day game with Nauset - who defeated the Dolphins 21-20 earlier this season. The win means D-Y will face Doherty for the Division 4 crown Saturday, Dec. 7 at Gillette Stadium.
