FALLS CITY -- Flying under the radar for much of the season, the Falls City Beaverette basketball team stands, as of press time, just one game from a perfect district season and championship.

The Beaverettes began district play on Jan. 4 with a lopsided 80-point win over Runge. They followed the game up with a 68-30 win over Three Rivers, and an 87-40 win over Yorktown. The Beaverettes took down Kenedy on Jan. 15 by the score of 70-20, then ran all over Pettus for a 91-31 win. After the first round of district play, no one had finished closer than 38 points behind Falls City, and no one appeared to have an answer for the Beaverettes.

The second round of district play didn’t get much better for the competition, Runge played a little better at home against Falls City, but still fell by 55 to the Blue and White. Three Rivers finished 30 points behind the Beaverettes, and Falls City held a 7-0 district record.

Last Tuesday, Yorktown made its best effort to dethrone Falls City, but it barely slowed the Beaverettes down. Falls City scored 20 first-period points, and 23 during the second stanza. It was all but over at the break, as Falls City led 43-6. The Beaverettes backed off a bit in the second half, but still outscored Yorktown, and locked up a 63-20 win to improve to 8-0 in district play.

It’s not very often a high school basketball game reaches the century mark, but no one told the Beaverettes that. During last Friday’s game with Kenedy, the Beaverettes were even more explosive than normal, defeating Kenedy 101-20, and ending the night at 9-0 in district play. The Beaverettes scored 16 points in the first period, then added 29 in the second to lead 35-14 at the half. Falls City came out of the locker room and threw up 34 third-period points, while holding Kenedy to just 2 points. The Beaverettes tacked on another 22 in the fourth, and eclipsed the 100-mark before time expired.

With just one game left on the schedule, things are looking good for Falls City. A Feb. 5 win over Pettus, a team they already beat by 60 points, will mean another district title and a bye in the first round. It should be no problem, but Coach Brian Osuna and the Beaverettes aren’t taking anything for granted.

The Beaverettes may have flown under the radar for much of the season, but with playoffs around the corner, the team is certain to make some headlines in its quest for another shot at the state title.
