The Beavers battled with the Stockdale Brahmas and it would take a team effort to come away with the victory.  The front line of the Beaver defense consisting of Tyler Malcolm, Stephen Harlos, Devon Lyssy, William Stolle, and Conner Jendrusch were up to the task of stopping the Stockdale offense on this fourth down play.  The Falls City defense would stop the Brahmas three times on fourth down.

STOCKDALE – After shutting out the Poth Pirates the week before, the Falls City Beavers looked to carry the momentum into the first of three straight road games on Friday night. The Stockdale Brahmas proved to be a tough opponent, but the Beavers utilized their defense and held on for a close 16-8 victory.

“A lot of football is like life lessons,” said Falls City head coach Steve Marbach. “You learn about being a man when things seem to not go your way. I’m really proud of our guys. Stockdale was an excellent team. We overcame and found a way.”

All 16 of Falls City’s points occurred in the second quarter. The first eight came from a passing touchdown from Dean Gaskamp to Stephen Harlos, with Justin Twine running in the conversion. The second eight points came on a pass from Gaskamp to David Brodsky, with Gaskamp running in the conversion. Stockdale’s lone score of the night didn’t occur until late in the fourth quarter on a running play for the touchdown, with the two-point conversion cutting the Beavers’ lead in half. The Brahmas attempted an onside kick, but the Beavers let the kick go out of bounds, giving possession to the Beavers as they ran out the clock to secure the victory.

“They’ve been incredible,” said Marbach about the Falls City defense. “We were proud of our onside hands team. Our guys understood to let the ball go out of bounds.”

Statistics for the game were unavailable at press time.

This week, the Beavers will have a rare Saturday night game as they travel to D’Hanis to take on the Cowboys. The Cowboys defeated the Beavers in last year’s meeting.

“Our guys will be fired up,” said Marbach. “Last year was our only home loss and it was homecoming, so it was a double stinger. We’re excited about a couple of things we’re doing. It’ll be interesting to play on a Saturday.”

Kickoff in D’Hanis is set for Saturday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
