EAST LIVERPOOL OH-?The Beavers continued their path of destruction on Friday night, as they defeated the Indian Creek Redskins 56-13.


The Beavers forced a turnover on downs on the first drive of the game, and followed it up with a 2 play TD drive as Austin Cline found Caden Foster from 12 yards out. On their next possession, it took them 5 plays to reach the end zone thanks to a 35 yard house call by Kaydon Bobby on a screen pass. Indian Creek didn’t just go away though, as Isaac Robinson housed the ensuing kickoff from 75 yards, and then both defenses took control the rest of the first quarter. In the second, the Beavers found their stride. Following a muffed punt Austin Cline threw a fadeaway pass to the endzone where Noah Bowyer made a tough catch while also drawing a pass interference call to make it 21-6. The penalty was enforced on the kickoff, and the Beavers went with a surprise inside kick which they recovered.


Austin Cline then ran it in from 20 yards out for his 4th total TD on the day, putting Beaver Local up 28-6. Their defense continued to create stops, and a Gabe Morgan 1 yard TD run followed by a 4 yard TD pass from Cline to Bobby again made it 42-6 at the half. The Beavers put the cherry on top with a Blake Lucas kickoff return TD to start the second half and a Wade Foster TD run in cleanup duty late in the fourth. Indian Creek scored one more time in the third, but it wasn’t enough as the final was 56-13.


The win secured a second straight Buckeye 8 conference title, and the Beavers will look to extend their 6 game winning streak next week against John Hay.
