Beavers fall in 2OT in district action at Colby

After scoring a game tying touchdown in the fourth quarter and taking the lead in the first overtime, Scott City put themselves in position to gain a hard-earned district playoff win at Colby last Friday.

Unfortunately, the Beavers (5-2) were unable to keep Colby out of the end zone on back-to-back possessions in overtime.

Faced with fourth-andgoal from the one-foot line in the second overtime, SCHS quarterback Parker Gooden was stopped short of the end zone and SCHS fell 28-20 in a game that cost them any chance at a district title and also gave Colby the Great West Activities Conference championship.

It was also the first time since 2016 that the Beavers had dropped back-to-back games.

“Overall, we did a pretty good job of containing (runningback Calvin) Stapp. But he was just effective enough to keep the chains moving and keep our offense off the field,” says Turner.
