The Carroll Patriots ended their two-year scoring drought against the Beavercreek Beavers Friday night, scoring 28 en route to a 28-18 victory.  The Patriots got on the board first with a 16-yard scoring run toward the end of the first quarter, taking a 7-0 lead.  The Beavers answered when Stone Kincer broke free and rambled 46 yards for the score, but the Beavers would miss the extra point attempt.  Carroll took a 14-6 lead just before half after Patrick Shiner took it in from 10 yards out.  The Beavers again had a chance to tie the game after Logan Turben scored on a 3-yard run, but again the Beavers failed to score the point after, this time failing on a 2-point try.  Carroll then scored two straight 4th quarter touchdowns, one on a 19-yard halfback pass and the other a 9-yard scamper by Shiner.  The second touchdown was set up when the Beavers failed to get a first down on 4th and 9 from their own 22.  After getting the ball back, the Beavers quickly marched down the field and Kincer scored his second touchdown of the game with 4:24 to go in the 4th quarter, but another failed extra point try left the Beavers down by 10 at 28-18.  Beavercreek then recovered the onside kick, with Brandon Williams catching the perfect onside kick and racing down the sidelines, only to be stopped by what turned out to be a mistakenly-thrown flag by an official who blew the play dead, only to waive off the flag.  The Beavers were able to drive into position to attempt a field goal, but that attempt hit the right upright and sealed the game for the Patriots, breaking a 3-game winning streak in the series by Beavercreek.  The Beavers were led on offense by Stone Kincer, who rushed for 105 yards, added 47 receiving yards on two receptions, and scored twice.  On defense, Danny Holstein tallied 8 solo tackles and Thomas Baker added 5 tackles.  The Beavers fall to 0-2 and will be on the road next Friday to take on the Fairborn Skyhawks.  See all the game photos under the Game Highlights/Photos tab or by clicking here.
