BEAVER OH- The Beavers continued their trail of dominance, as they picked up their second straight 49 point win and their 3rd straight W with a home win over the Minerva Lions at Pastore Field 56-7.


The scoring got started right out of the gate, literally. Senior Dylan Moore returned the opening kickoff for Beaver Local 82 yards to the house to open up the game. Things once again only got better for the Beavers. The following drive was capped off by a 33 yard TD pass to Sophomore QB Zane Kinsey. Minerva, after suffering 2 consecutive three and outs, had to start their next drive at their own 3 yard line. The Beavers capitalized big time, as on the first play Wyatt Loy made a tackle that resulted in a safety for the Beavers. 


This made up for the failed 2 point conversion for the Beavers on the previous TD, and they would get the ball right back. Caleb White decided to get in on the kick return TD committee, as he took one to the house himself from 65 yards out. That made it 22-0. The Beavers then got the ball back with less that a 30 seconds to go in the opening quarter, and Tanner Johnston decided to hit the jets and outrun everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, on the Minerva defense as he took it 39 yards for the score.


From that point on, the Beavers got an interception from Dorian Jackson, which resulted in a 29 yard TD pass to Dylan Moore. They also got another 29 yard TD pass, this time to Caleb White to close out the first half at a 43-0 Beaver lead. They got two more rushing scores from the second string guys, one from Joe Monte and the other from Logan Blissenbach.


The Beavers allowed Minerva to score once in the second half, and won the game 56-7 to improve to 3-1 on the season, as Dylan Moore took home our G. Burbick Farms Player of the Game honors.


Beaver Local will travel to Edison to take on the Wildcats next week at 7:00 on Your Sports Network
