Beavercreek let one slip away Friday night and Wayne took advantage, rallying to edge the Beavers 14-10.  The Beavers struck first in the second quarter with a 28-yard field goal by Kyle Petering to take a 3-0 lead.  The Warriors answered with a 12-yard touchdown pass with 5:33 left in the first half for a 7-3 lead.  Beavercreek ended the first half with a drive in which they had first and goal inside the ten with 47 seconds left in the half, set up by a 42-yard pass from Mike Berry to Jared Waters.  But the Beavers were unable to manage the clock or come away with any points on the drive as time ran out in the half without any time outs to stop the clock.  This missed opportunity would come back to haunt the Beavers.  Beavercreek took a 10-7 lead in the fourth quarter following a 1-yard touchdown dive by QB Mike Berry.  But it was Wayne that would strike last, scoring on a 6-yard quarterback draw with 2:27 left in the game to take a 14-10 lead.  The Warriors then held on to stop one last Beavercreek drive to secure the victory.  The Beavers outgained the Warriors 256 to 193 total yards and held Wayne to only 14 yards on the ground.  Beavercreek rushed for 163 yards, led by Allen Lawrence with 57 yards and Logan Turben adding 51 yards.  The Beavercreek defense was again stellar, with Tyler Reasoner delivering some big hits and Michael Carroll leading the way with 9 tackles on the night.  The Beavers fall to 3-4 and will face Springfield next Friday night on the road.  Go Beavers!
