SALEM OH- After being held scoreless in the 1st half for the second consecutive week, the Salem Quaker offense shows signs of life in the 2nd to the tune of 20 points, but in the end it wasn’t enough to overcome the offensive output of Austin Cline and the Beaver Local Beavers (1-1), who overtook Salem early on en route to a 41-20 victory.

Cline was a one man wrecking crew, accounting for over 300 yards of total offense (190 rushing, 122 passing) and three total scores. He did get help from his skill position teammates, namely Brock Severs and Tyler Prideau, who each helped balance out the run and passing attack of the Beavers on the night. Severs contributed 57 yards and a score on the ground, and another 114 yards and a score through the air, while Prideau ran hard all night to the tune of 10 carries for close to 70 hard-earned yards.
For Salem (0-2), Sophomore QB Cletis Monroy had his 1st 100 yard game of his young career, both on the ground and through the air. Monroy finished his night with 120 yards rushing with 2 scores, to go along with 132 yards through the air and a score (47 yards to Marcus Phillips). Phillips finished with over 100 yards of total offense (52 rushing, 57 receiving) and a score.
Salem will travel to East Liverpool next week to take on the Potters in the 99th meeting between the two Columbiana County schools, while Beaver Local will play host to Jefferson Area.
