The Beaver Dome played host Friday night to a story of two halves. The second half proved to be the stronger story as Harrison Central defeated Beaver Local 44-32 on Homecoming night.

The Beavers were in control early as Evan Stephenson would lead the way scoring six 1st quarter points guiding the red & white to a 13-6 lead. The strong play for Beaver Local continued in the 2nd quarter as the defense would put the squeeze on the Huskies creating transition points leading to a 19-9 lead. Broc Taylor would close out the first half converting a breakaway layup off a steal giving the home team a 26-16 halftime lead.

This is where the story would completely change as Harrison Central would author the ending. The Huskies defense would completely shut down the Beavers offense behind a smothering 2-3 zone. That defense would lead the Harrison Central comeback as they would limit the Beavers to just four points in the 3rd quarter.  Hayden Cassidy provided the highlight of the night as his beyond halfcourt shot at the buzzer would ignite the Huskies faithful tying the score 30-30 heading to the 4th quarter.

The final frame proved to be a forgettable chapter for Beaver Local as they would only muster two points late in the quarter off a Broc Taylor runner in the lane. The Huskies outscored their opponent 14-2 in the final frame on their way to the comeback victory.

The Beavers were led by Evan Stehanson and Broc Taylor each scoring 12 respectively. Every story deserves royalty as Faith Talbott would be crowned Homecoming Queen prior to the start of the game. Beaver Local 6-6 looks to stop a 2 game losing streak as they travel to Indian Creek Tuesday.

CADIZ OH- The Beavers picked up another blowout victory, dominating Buckeye 8 opponent Harrison Central by a final of 65-7

After Beaver Local forced a punt on the first drive of the game for the Huskies, Caleb White took a hand-off 99 yards on the first play from scrimmage, and the Beavers were off to a 7-0 start. Harrison Central then fumbled on their first play the ensuing drive, and it was another 1 play TD drive for the Beavers, as Austin Cline threw his 1st of 3 TD passes on the day, this one to Dylan Ferguson from 24 yards out and in the blink of an eye it was 13-0 Beaver Local. They added a 31 yard FG from Kaleb Mays, a safety on special teams, and a 3 yard TD run from Hayden Beebout to get it to 25-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Huskies finally had an answer to start the second quarter, as Hayden Cassidy hit Parker Hutton for an 18 yard score to cut it to 25-7. Beaver Local went out and responded though, as Cline hit Ferguson again for a 53 yard TD to push the lead back up 32-7. 


Cline’s 3rd TD pass of the day was a bit of a scramble drill where he found White in the back of the end zone from 10 yards out which made it 38-7 at the break. The second half was all defense for Beaver Local, as they had three straight pick sixes to push the lead up to 58-7. Caden Foster, Tyler Prideau, and Keaton Heddleston all registered interception returns for a TD. Taylor Johnston then ran one in from 3 yards for his 3rd TD in 2 games to put the cherry on top of a 65-7 victory. It was tied for the largest offensive output this season for the Beavers, and their third 60+ point offensive performance of the season.


The Beavers move their winning streak to 5 games, as they will head into their home matchup with Indian Creek at 5-2.

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.

Kodi Kinsey’s 17 digs and Bailey Bowesock’s 7 digs solidified the defense in victory. Senior Lexi Schrieber also described the feeling on a senior night victory “It was just so exciting seeing everyone so happy to be together knowing we were playing as seniors.”
