The Beaver Falls Tigers took the advice of their most famous son–“Beat New Brighton”–to full heart at Reeves Stadium.
The Tigers kept the “Little Brown Jug” with a dominant 48-0 victory against the Lions on WBVP, 99.3 FM, and BCR video streams. New Brighton, in search of their first win of the season, held the Tigers to just 8 points in the first quarter. But touchdown runs from Jaren Brickner and Isaiah Aeschbacher in the second quarter slowly iced the game away for Beaver Falls, who now have retained the Jug for three consecutive games since the rivalry was renewed during the 2020 season.
Beaver Falls improves to 1-0 in Midwestern Athletic Conference play and 3-1 overall; they travel to Neshannock next Friday at 7:00 PM. New Brighton falls to 0-4 overall and 0-1 in MAC action; the Lions host Mohawk for Week 4 at Oak Hill Field (also a 7:00 start).
