EAST LIVERPOOL, OH- The Beaver Local Beavers football team had its best performance of the season so far on Homecoming Friday Night as they defeated Edison 61-20. It was, however the Wildcats that scored first. On their opening possession, Edison drove all the way down to the Beaver Local 7 yard line thanks to accurate passing by freshman quarterback Gage Cline. The opening drive would end on a 24-yard field goal by Carter Montgomery giving the Wildcats a 3-0 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Beaver Local’s Caleb White would return the ball from his own 13 to the Edison 48. The Beavers would drive 48 yards on 6 plays, all of it on the ground, capped off by a Devon Salsberry 2 yard touchdown run giving Beavers a 7-3 lead with 6:30 left in the first quarter. It’s a lead the Beavers would never relinquish. On Edison’s next possession Beavers defensive back Dylan Moore would intercept a Gage Cline pass & return it 55 yards for a touchdown, making the score 14-3 Beavers after one quarter.
Coming off a tough loss in week four against Steubenville Central Catholic, Coach O’Brien and the Wildcats are looking to bounce back in week five. The Wildcats will travel to Beaver Local to take on a talented Beavers squad led by Coach McKenzie.
