FALLS CITY -- With six touchdowns in the first quarter, and two more in the second, it is safe to call the Beavers’ 58-0 Homecoming win over Charlotte last week a blowout.
Falls City not only has a defense as tough as they come in Class 1A, but the Beavers also have a roster full of weapons on the offensive side of the ball. Five different players scored touchdowns for Falls City last Friday, and even more had their hands in the victory.
The Beavers mix up their offense nicely with the run and pass, though pretty much everything worked against the Trojans last week. Senior Justin Twine ran the ball just twice against Charlotte, though they both went for touchdowns. One was good from 55 yards out, while the other was a 63-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Dean Gaskamp was also perfect running the ball, as he had one carry that was good for 3 yards and a touchdown. David Brodsky had five carries for 94 yards, and Zach Jimerson ran six times for 43 yards after relieving Gaskamp at quarterback. Kendall Kanak, Olxman Cruz, and Tyler Malcolm each had runs for positive yardage, as well.
Gaskamp was perfect throwing the ball, as he completed both of his passes for 35 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown strike to Cody Houdmann. Jimerson also did well under center, as he completed 7 of 8 attempts for 159 yards and three touchdowns. Austen Camber, Eric Wiatrek, and Gaskamp each caught touchdown passes from Jimerson.
Defensively, Kolton Pollok led the way with 11 tackles, followed by Malcolm with 10. Wiatrek and Houdmann each had eight tackles, and Mitch Lyssy added seven more. Dylan Urbanczyk tallied six in the game.
The win keeps the Beavers perfect on the season as the team improves to 6-0. The Beavers will now transition into their district schedule, as they open play at home against Pettus.
The Pettus Eagles are currently 3-3, and are coming off a 45-6 trouncing of Agua Dulce.
Falls City and Pettus will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Beaver Stadium.
