EAST LIVERPOOL OH- The Beavers put together another impressive performance, winning their 5th straight game by beating the Harrison Central Huskies 48-14.
The Huskies got the ball to start, and wasted no time going down the field in 55 seconds, capping off a 67 yard TD drive with a 21 yard TD throw from Hayden Cassidy to Tre Rex. The Beavers would respond with a long TD drive of their own. Logan Blissenbach took one 27 yards to the house on 3rd and 20, as Austin Cline threw his first of 4 TD passes on the day. The Beavers defense came up big, forcing a three and out and paving the way for a 63 yard punt return TD by Dorian Jackson. The Beavers next drive ended with another Logan Blissenbach TD, this one from 29 yards out on 4th and 14.
Beaver Local would score twice more before the half, courtesy of a Caden Foster 33 yard TD catch and a 17 yard Austin Cline TD run, but Harrison Central was able to keep their hopes alive with a 65 yard bomb to Tre Rex from Hayden Cassidy again. Beaver Local shut the door coming out of half though, as we saw the third TD connection from Austin Cline and Logan Blissenbach, from 37 yards out this time, as Blissenbach ended with a Randy Moss esque stat line of 3 catches, 93 yards, and 3 scores. To cap off the night, the Beaver defense recovers a fumble in the end zone for yet another TD, giving them a 48-14 win and puts them in the driver seat for a Buckeye 8 North title, which would be the first in school history.
The Beavers travel to Indian Creek next week, looking to make history and officially clinch the Buckeye 8 North with a win. Kickoff at 7:00.
