  Tigers topple Knights in home opener  
  by Kevin Fick
  Jordan Beuckens makes a grab on the Knights first play from scrimmage.

Friday, August 28, the West Central Area-Ashby Knights hosted the Browerville-Eagle Valley Tigers in a Mid State District match up.

The contest provided two classic offenses that for awhile looked like a heavyweight fight. With a offset power run game vs. the veer, these two slugged it out toe to toe for the first half. Both teams were able to put together moderate drives but stingy defenses held true and at halftime the score was 6-0 in favor of the Tigers. The only score coming in the 1st quarter as Jordan Groder (B-EV) powered it in from seven yards out.

As the third period resumed B-EV took complete control, after a timely down field pass by Bryce Irsfeld (B-EV) and a 60 yd catch run and score by Griffin Webster, (B-EV) the Tigers found themselves in the drivers seat. The reeling Knights allowed the Tigers to move the ball at will in the third and gave up rushing touchdowns at 3:34 to Dalton Butler (B-EV) and once again with 2:00 left in the quarter on a 26-yard scoring field reversal by Irsfeld. The fourth quarter remained scoreless for both squads. Final score B-EV 28, WCA-A 0.
