Tigers Shut Out Ligonier Valley 52-0

After a power outage at Reeves Field, this matchup almost didn’t happen Friday night.  The game was moved to Blackhawk High School, and the Tigers didn’t miss a beat.  The game got started around 8:30 and Beaver Falls was strong from the start.   Big plays and a stiff defense helped the Tigers lock this one up early.  The score at the half was 38-0, with the mercy clock already running.  After a quick second half, the Tigers came out victorious with a final score BF 52 LV 0.

Bobcats Hold Off Lancers in 1st Round of Playoffs

The Deer Lakes Lancers met the Beaver Bobcats at Pat Tarquinio field for the first round of WPIAL playoffs Friday night. It would be hard to say the Bobcats had a rough start even after a disastrous play resulted in a fumble. Lucky for Beaver, they recovered the ball and took the next play to the end zone.  The Bobcats defense managed to hold the Lancers back and Deer Lakes were only able to score 3 points on a field goal in the first half.  The halftime score was Beaver 14 Deer Lakes 3.  The second half became a battle of defense with both teams achieving a strong hold on eachother.  Beaver managed 3 more points while Deer Lakes didn’t get any for the rest of the contest.  The Bobcats move on to round two with a final score Beaver 17 Deer Lakes 3.
