Game 1: Derby vs. Mill Valley

By Joanna Chadwick

Derby was in the unfortunate position of losing its season opening opponent due to COVID-19.

But, boy, did Derby fill that gap in impression fashion.

Derby will play at Mill Valley at 7 p.m. in Week 1.

That’s the Class 6A champion Derby Panthers at the Class 5A champion Mill Valley Jaguars.

It’s also a matchup of cousins — Derby coach Brandon Clark vs. former assistant and cousin, Mill Valley coach Joel Applebee.
