WOODSBORO – The Falls City Beavers, as of late, are riding a wave of momentum stemming from a recent string of victories.

With a close win over Yorktown the week before under their belts, the Beavers sought to continue hitting their stride as they traveled to Woodsboro to face the Eagles in the opening week of District 16-A Division II action.

The Beavers did just that as they used their trademark style of gameplay to shut out the Eagles 43-0.

Falls City head coach Mark Kirchhoff was unavailable for comment as of press time.

The first half saw the Beavers score a majority of their points.

With 10:29 to go in the 1st quarter, senior running back Tyler Wiatrek punched it in on a 3-yard run and also ran in the 2-point conversion for the Beavers’ early 8-0 edge.

Later in the quarter, with 2:21 left, junior running back Phillip Lyssy got into the end zone from one yard out, with senior Scott Lyssy kicking the PAT.

Lyssy would be a perfect 5 for 5 on PAT attempts for the game.

Just 58 seconds into the 2nd quarter, Wiatrek kept the wheels turning as he broke free on a 21-yard run for the score.

Wiatrek would punch it in again later in the quarter on a one yard run with 7:08 on the clock. The final score of the first half came with 1:42 to go as Lyssy broke free for a 21-yard score to give the Beavers a commanding 36-0 lead at halftime.

The second half’s lone score came with 6:06 left in the 4th quarter as senior Wiatrek scored his fourth and final touchdown of the game on a 16-yard run.

Statistically, it was a one-sided affair as the Beavers gained 410 yards of total offense, with 314 rushing and 96 passing.

The Beavers held the Eagles to just 59 rushing yards and gave up no passing yards.

Penalties were not abundant as Falls City was flagged twice for 15 total yards and Woodsboro was flagged four times for 40 yards.

This week, the Beavers will welcome the Pettus Eagles to town.

Kickoff in Falls City is set for Friday, September 30 at 7:30 PM.
