FALLS CITY -- With one game remaining in the regular season, as of press time, the Falls City Beaver basketball team finds itself in a tie with Kenedy for the top spot in District 30-1A-I.

Falls City got an extremely late start to the season, and thus only played a handful of games before district play began. Still, the Beavers have risen to the occasion, and have made a 7-2 run through the district schedule to find themselves in a tie with Kenedy.

The Beavers picked up a pair of wins last week, knocking off Pettus in Falls City, and then defeating the Yellowjackets on the road in Runge.

Against Pettus, the Beavers jumped all over the Eagles in the early going, outscoring their opponents 20-8 in the first period. The Eagles came back to outscore the Beavers in the second, but Falls City still carried a 33-25 advantage into halftime.

In the second half, Falls City once again got the jump on Pettus. The Beavers outscored the Eagles 22-14 in the third, and 24-13 in the fourth to lock up a 79-52 win. Dean Gaskamp lit up the scoreboard with 32 points, followed by Zach Jimerson with 11. Eric Wiatrek scored 8 and Gabe Jimerson chipped in another 7. Wiatrek had 14 rebounds in the game.

On Friday, the Beavers traveled to Runge. The game was a low-scoring affair, but in the end, Falls City was once again on top, this time in a 46-33 decision.

Neither team was especially impressive in the first period of play, as the Beavers scored just 4 points, and Runge sank just one free throw. Both teams picked things up considerably in the second period, though. As the teams headed for the locker rooms, it was the Beavers on top, 19-9.

The Yellowjackets outscored Falls City 11-7 in the third, to narrow the gap and make it a 26-20 contest. The Beavers turned up the heat from there, though, scoring 20 points in the final eight minutes, and skipping town with a 46-33 victory.

Wiatrek and William Stolle led the Beaver scoring effort with 8 points apiece, followed by Gaskamp and Zach Jimerson with 7 points. Gabe Jimerson added 6, and Chase Ramsey was good for another 4 points. Wiatrek tallied 11 rebounds, and Stolle led the defensive effort with four steals.

The Beavers were scheduled to host Three Rivers on Feb. 11, and will then begin playoff competition. Playoff information and results will be posted online at wilsoncountynews.com.
