EAST LIVERPOOL OH- The Beavers picked up a big time win on Friday night, defeating the Keyser Golden Tornado 31-10.
The Beavers started the game out on fire. They forced a three and out and took the ball downfield on a methodical TD drive capped off by a 4 yard TD pass from Austin Cline to Dylan Ferguson to make it 7-0 early. A field goal a few minutes later made it 10-0 Beavers, but the West Virginia AA school wasn’t going to make the long trip and not put up a fight. They put up a field goal of their own early in the second quarter and a TD run from Tristen Root to tie the game.
Austin Cline responded quickly as he ran in a 15 yard TD to make it 17-10 at the half. In the second half, the Beavers played in a way we haven’t seen all year. They were able to answer some early season questions about their line play and run defense by shutting out the Keyser Golden Tornado in the second half, stifling their run game which had picked up steam before the half. A couple Caleb White TDs sealed the deal, as he ran one in from 20 out in the third and in the 4th, he caught a 22 yard TD to put the game on ice. The 2 touchdowns for the Big Dog of the Valley nominee puts him at 10 scores in the last 3 weeks and 13 scores on the season, as the Beavers picked up the W.
They will entertain Oak Glen, another West Virginia team next week for their homecoming matchup.
