“It was awesome,” said Marbach. “The defense was incredible. For a second week in a row, we held them to around 50 yards of offense. It was fun to get the young guys playing. It’s going to help them down the road. It was a dress rehearsal for the playoffs.”
This week, the Beavers return to district action as they host the Woodsboro Eagles. “They’re doing a great job,” said Marbach about the Eagles. “They’ve got some impressive backs. We’ve got to contain them and tackle well. We’ll be diverse and mix it up.”
