A lot is doin' in Dover: D-S and Holliston Square off

with title hopes on line By T.D. Pointer Metrowest Daily News T.D. doesn't know where to begin. His head is spinning. His cell phone is ringing. Two-Point is prying. Pointer is puzzled. Not as confused as when he watches "Desperate Housewives," -- who thinks of this stuff? -- but darn close. Somehow, some way, a Week 9 Tri-Valley League matchup between Holliston and Dover-Sherborn is important. Somebody pinch me. Holliston's last postseason appearance came when T.D. entered the senior citizen circuit (1991). D-S hasn't been to the postseason during Pointer's lifetime or anyone else's for that matter. The Raiders have never, ever, been to the playoffs. But, this is their best chance. D-S is 5-1 in the league and 7-1 overall. That's the same number of wins the Raiders had in the last three years combined. Quarterback Andrew Derr is one of T.D.'s favorites and is sure to get some recognition for league MVP. Still, Holliston might be the most dominant TVL team in recent memory. Allow T.D. to digress before his buddy at the Daily News, and longtime Bellingham resident, Rick Smith, cries blasphemy. Yes, the Ricky Santos Blackhawks were thrilling. No doubt. But Santos was The Show. Take him off that team, and we're talking about a .500-squad at best. Not so with this Holliston bunch. The Panthers have a star in quarterback Tyler Parrino and numerous options in the backfield, including back Zach Rogers. On defense, the corners can cover, the line can get to the quarterback and the linebackers can tackle. Head coach Todd Kiley exudes confidence and, right now, has the best offense in the league. Pointer can't see the Panthers losing this one. Pick: Holliston.
