Beavers blank Eagles in Woodsboro
Stephen Harlos goes up for a touchdown catch during the Falls City victory over Woodsboro last Friday evening.
Falls City 52
WOODSBORO -- It wasn’t the 80-0 margin from the week before, but the Falls City Beavers still pulled off a lopsided victory as they traveled to Woodsboro and pounded on the previously unbeaten Eagles. In the end, the final was 52-0.
For Falls City, it doesn’t seem to matter who the Beavers are playing, the result is the same -- victory. The Beavers have so many different weapons and can hurt a team in so many different ways; it’s hard for opposing defenses to slow Falls City down, let alone to stop the Beavers. Falls City scored a total of eight touchdowns against Woodsboro, and did it in different ways.
On the ground, Falls City scored four touchdowns with great running by a host of players. Senior quarterback Dean Gaskamp led the way with 110 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Sophomore quarterback Zach Jimerson came on in relief and ran twice for 50 yards and a touchdown. Senior Kendall Kanak ran the ball six times for 37 yards and a touchdown, and fellow senior Austen Camber ran three times for 10 yards and a touchdown.
Through the air, the Beavers scored a total of three touchdowns last Friday. Gaskamp completed 5 of 10 passing attempts for 90 yards and tossed two touchdown passes. He hit senior David Brodsky for 29 yards and a score, as well as Camber for 6 yards and a touchdown. Jimerson completed 4 of 7 passes for 48 yards and a touchdown, as he connected with senior Stephen Harlos for 27 yards and a score.
If those scores weren’t enough, the Beavers also found ways to hurt the Eagles on special teams. Camber has earned the reputation as a dangerous return man, and he showed Woodsboro what he can do. Camber returned a pair of kickoffs for 82 total yards, one of which went for 43 paces. He also returned one punt for 51 yards to give the Beaver offense excellent starting field position.
Defensively, the Beavers gave very little to the Eagles. Mitch Lyssy led Falls City with 11 tackles on the night, followed by Connor Jendrusch and Tyler Malcolm with 10 tackles each. Joseph Swierc was good for six tackles, Stephen Harlos and Eric Wiatrek were each good for five tackles, and Camber and Cody Houdmann each tallied four.
The Beavers also came up with six turnovers, including four fumble recoveries and two interceptions. Brodsky and Jendrusch each had fumble recoveries, and Gaskamp covered up another two. Gaskamp also had an interception at the Beaver 30-yard line that was promptly returned 70 yards for a Falls City touchdown. Tyler Moore had another interception and ran it back 48 yards before being dragged down.
When a team wins at every facet of the game, it easily wins on the scoreboard. Falls City has found ways to win throughout the season, and Woodsboro’s 7-0 record meant nothing to the Beavers once game time rolled around.
The big road win puts the Beavers at 8-0 on the year, and 2-0 in district play. Falls City will host Louise this Friday at Beaver Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
