Beavers open up passing game in district shutout over Russell

It wasn’t reflected so much in the final stats, but one thing was quickly apparent in last Friday’s game at Russell.

Scott City could run at will.

They had 107 yards and two rushing touchdowns in the first quarter - and it could have been a lot worse despite the 41-0 blowout that kept the Beavers (5-0) unbeaten.

A fumble inside the five yard line on Scott City’s first possession kept one touchdown off the scoreboard. A decision to work on the passing game prevented the Beavers from running roughshod over the winless Broncos.

“They had a nine man front early on so Coach Gentry was running sweeps. We were eight or nine yards down the field before anyone was in the vicinity,” notes head coach Jim Turner.
