Falls City 22, Jourdanton 8

JOURDANTON -- It was a tight game in Jourdanton last Friday night as the Falls City Beaver football team opened its 2012 season on the road. The Beavers definitely have some things to work on, but the boys in blue looked promising as they presented a balanced attack throughout the night, and returned home with a 22-8 victory.

While both teams gained about the same number of yards on the ground, Falls City did it more efficiently, gaining 11 more yards on 15 fewer carries. Through the air, however, the scales definitely tipped in favor of Falls City, as senior quarterback Cameron Soto completed eight passes for 121 yards. The Indians completed just two passes for 29 yards.

After nearly an entire half without a score, the Beavers broke the tie by scoring the game’s first touchdown with just 4 seconds remaining in the first half. Soto connected with junior Dean Gaskamp from 12 yards out, and the Beavers went on top, 6-0. Soto then hit fellow senior Cody Jendrusch on the 2-point play, and Falls City went into the locker room with an 8-0 halftime advantage.

Midway through the third quarter of play, Jourdanton knotted things back up with an 8-yard scoring run from Brandon Pacheco. Chase Harrison ran in the 2-point conversion, and everyone was back on an even playing field. Falls City didn’t relax a bit, though, and the Beavers thundered down the field to score two minutes later on a 6-yard run from Soto. He then connected with Stephen Harlos for the 2-point conversion, and Falls City reassumed the lead it had at the break.

The final touchdown of the game came at the 5:28 mark of the fourth quarter, as Soto ran 26 yards across the goal line. The conversion attempt was no good, but the Beavers held a 22-8 lead, and time was not Jourdanton’s friend. Falls City’s defense stiffened a bit more, and the Indians were held out of the end zone.

Soto led all rushers with 107 yards on 19 carries. Phillip Lyssy picked up 39 yards on four carries, and Harlos and David Brodsky each had a carry for 2 yards. Lyssy led the Beaver receiving corps with 60 yards on three grabs, followed by Gaskamp with 43 yards and a touchdown on two catches. Harlos had two receptions for 11 yards, and Kendall Kanak had a catch for 7 yards.

The Beavers will have their hands full again this week as the team travels just up the road to Poth. The matchup between the two teams is always exciting, and each will give every ounce of effort to secure a victory and bragging rights. The Pirates are coming off a loss in Marion, and will undoubtedly be looking to use the Beavers as a stepping stone in their recovery. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Jack Lane Stadium.
