Falls City 50
Runge 14

FALLS CITY -- After 10 games in 11 weeks, one thing remains the same -- it makes little difference who lines up across the ball. In the end, the Beavers will be celebrating a win.

The Battlin’ Beavers traveled to Runge last Friday night to close out the 2013 regular season, and returned home with a 50-14 victory. The win puts Falls City at 10-0 on the year, and gives the team a perfect District 14-1A DII record of 4-0.

Falls City scored its first points of the night within the first two minutes of the game on a 24-yard touchdown run. Before the first quarter was over, the score was 16-0.

Just 22 seconds into the second quarter, David Brodsky completed a pass to Justin Twine that went for 45 yards and a touchdown. Before Runge even knew what happened, the lead was 23-0.

The Yellowjackets got onto the scoreboard with 2:32 to play in the half, and then again in the closing minute to make the score 23-14 at the half.

After going half of the third quarter without a score, Twine broke loose from the Beaver 11-yard line for an 89-yard touchdown run. Another Beaver touchdown to close out the quarter left the score at 37-14.

Joseph Swierc scored from 31 yards out in the fourth quarter, and a sixth rushing touchdown with 37 seconds to play landed Falls City at a 50-14 victory.

Dean Gaskamp completed 2 of 7 passes for 41 yards. Brodsky completed his one pass of the game to Twine for 45 yards and the touchdown. Twine had all three Beaver receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown.

On the ground, seven different players had their hands on the ball. Twine led the team with two carries for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Gaskamp had seven carries for 102 yards and two more touchdowns. Zach Jimerson had five carries for 48 yards and a touchdown, and Swierc had one carry for 31 yards and a touchdown. Dayton Jaskinia ran twice for 13 yards, Brodsky ran twice for 15 yards, and Kendall Kanak ran once for 4 yards.

Eric Wiatrek led the defense with 29 tackles, followed by Tyler Malcolm with 16, and Austen Camber with 13. In total, 19 different players registered tackles. Twine and Malcolm each had interceptions, and Wiatrek caused a fumble.

While each of the Beavers’ victories has been solid this season, they are most impressive when one examines them as an overall body of work.

The Beavers finish at 10-0, but didn’t have very many close games. Over the course of the season, Falls City scored a total of 481 points, which averages out to 48 points per game. At the same time, the Beaver defense has held opponents to just 56 total points. That’s less than 6 points per game. Take the first game of the season out of the equation, a 34-28 win over Jourdanton, and the Beavers have outscored their opponents 447-28. Falls City also had six shutouts during the season. It’s hard to argue with those numbers.

The Beavers will enjoy a first-round bye in the playoffs, as Class 1A still only sends three teams into the postseason. Falls City will then face the winner of the game between D’Hanis and Charlotte. Falls City played both of these teams earlier in the year, and earned big wins over each. The Beavers knocked off D’Hanis by the score of 52-0, and then defeated Charlotte two weeks later by the score of 58-0.
