Beavercreek continued its recent dominance over Fairborn with a 35-14 road victory, moving to 3-0 on the season.  The Beavers used their league-leading ground game to control the clock (35:25 to 12:35 time of possession) and to build an early 21-0 lead in the second quarter.  Fairborn got on the board with :06 seconds left in the first half as Wesley Watts connected with KJ Redmon on a 15-yard touchdown pass to end the half, the Beavers up 21-7.  The Skyhawks tightened up on defense in the third quarter and made it close after Watts threw another scoring strike, this time a 41-yarder to Gracen Barnhart, and all of a sudden the Beavers were only up by seven.  Creek answered quickly after Rodney Alston punched it in from two yards out and the Beavers entered the 4th quarter up 28-14.  Kaden Wenger added a 51-yard scoring run in the 4th to provide the final score of 35-14.  Beavercreek won, despite not completing a pass, by rolling up 491 yards rushing.  Kaden Wenger led the charge with 159 yards, Justin Terrell added 119, and Rodney Alston picked up 112 yards.  Terrell scored twice including a 69-yard run in the first quarter.

On defense, the Beavers once again held their opponent to negative rushing yards, with Fairborn being limited to -18 yards rushing.  The Creek defense has not allowed any of its first three opponents positive rushing yards.  Fairborn QB Wesley Watts was able to find targets, finishing 17-25 for 250 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted three times.  Jullian Linkhart came up with two of those interceptions and Jack Kowalski added another.  Jay Drennen had three sacks on the night.  Beavercreek will be at Lebanon next Friday night as they continue a three-game road streak before returning home on Thursday, September 29th to face Springboro.
