Beavers blow out Cowboys on Saturday night
Austen Camber of Falls City looks to shake some tacklers during the Beavers’ 52-0 thrashing of D’Hanis last Saturday night.
Falls City 52
D’HANIS -- At the start of the season, Falls City Head Coach Steve Marbach said that he felt as though he had a number of potential playmakers on his team. Throughout the first three games of the year, his players have proved him right, and the underscored that fact last Saturday night with a 52-0 win in D’Hanis.
The Beavers wasted little time in D’Hanis, getting on the board less than two minutes into the game with a 10-yard touchdown run from senior Justin Twine. Quarterback Dean Gaskamp then connected with Twine for a 2-point conversion, and Falls City had an early 8-0 lead.
Things settled down quite a bit from there, as play went back and forth. With 7:45 remaining in the second quarter, though, Gaskamp scored the Beavers’ second touchdown of the game with a 9-yard scamper into the end zone. Austen Camber booted the extra point, and the score was 15-0 in favor of Falls City. A quick defensive stop gave the ball back to the Beaver offense, and Twine scored his second touchdown of the night on a 19-yard run from scrimmage. Then, with only 39 seconds remaining in the half, the Beavers scored again as Gaskamp raced in from 21 yards out. As the teams headed into halftime, it was all Falls City, 27-0.
Early in the third quarter, Twine scored his third touchdown of the game on a 2-yard run. Less than two minutes later, David Brodsky scored from 6 yards out. By the fourth quarter, it was Joseph Swierc and Zach Jimerson getting it done for Falls City, as Jimerson connected with Swierc from 29 yards out for a touchdown. Tyler Malcolm scored the final Beaver touchdown of the night with a 1-yard run midway through the fourth quarter, and Conner Jendrusch kicked the extra point to make the final score 52-0.
The D’Hanis Cowboys were 1-2 going into the game, but still averaged more than 200 yards per game over their first three outings. The Beaver defense, however, held the Cowboys to an anemic 63 yards on the night. The Cowboy running game was all but eliminated, as D’Hanis ran the ball 22 times for a net total of just 2 yards. The Cowboys completed 6 of 14 passing attempts for 61 yards, but were picked off twice. D’Hanis earned just five first downs during the game.
On the other side of the ball, the Beaver offense picked up a total of 24 first downs en route to 480 total yards and eight touchdowns. Gaskamp, Jimerson, and Twine combined for 13 of 21 throwing the ball for 139 yards, and Twine led the ground game with 120 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries. Gaskamp ran for 96 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries, Kendall Kanak had eight runs for 55 yards, and Swierc picked up 20 yards on two touches. Brodsky ran four times for 16 yards and a score. Olxman Cruz ran for 21 yards, Jimerson ran three times for 12 paces, and Malcolm had the one carry for the touchdown.
With the win, Falls City remains perfect on the year at 4-0. The team is currently ranked No. 5 in the state.
The Beavers go back on the road this Friday, as they travel to Three Rivers to face the 3-1 Bulldogs. Three Rivers opened the year with wins over Skidmore-Tynan, Nixon-Smiley, and Natalia, but are coming off a 35-14 loss to George West last Friday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
