Centerville was able to accomplish something no other team had this year — hold the Beavercreek Beavers’ rushing attack in check in their 48-14 win Friday night.  The Elks (8-0) and currently ranked #5 in the Ohio Division I AP Poll, stacked the line and held the Beavers to 47 yards on the ground, well below their league-leading average of 264 yards per game.  The Elks jumped out to an early 24-0 lead before Mikel Davis intercepted a pass and took it 70 yards for the score to put the Beavers on the board.  Centerville then pushed the lead to 41-7 in the second half before Tim Bradshaw scored from 2 yards out to make it 41-14.  Defensively, the Beavers’ young linebacking crew of Zane Roe (Soph.), Caleb Boone (Jr.), and  Alex Bush (Jr.) lead the Beavers with a combined 20 tackles and 3 sacks.  The Beavers fall to 3-5 and 1-2 in the GWOC Central.  The road remains tough again next week as Beavercreek travels to Huber Heights to take on Wayne (8-0), ranked # 3 in the Ohio Division I AP Poll.  Go Beavers.
