Beavercreek’s playoff hopes and season both came to an end Friday night at Centerville following a 26-0 shut-out loss to the Elks.  Centerville got on the scoreboard in the first quarter with an 18-yard touchdown pass and tacked on a second-quarter FG to take a 10-0 halftime lead, as the Creek defense kept the Beavers in the game.  But the offense could not move the ball and suffered a big blow when starting QB Cody Hocker left the game due to injury.  The Beavers, one of the leading rushing offenses in the GWOC, could only muster 62 yards on the ground and 21 through the air, the lowest offensive output of the season for the Beavs.  Centerville piled up 409 total yards and added two second-half touchdowns and a safety to round out the scoring.

Senior linebacker Adam Graeter lead the Creek defense with 17 tackles, a season high, and Bryce Neuse pitched in with 11 tackles in his final game at Beavercreek.  Even with a win, the Beavers would not have qualified for the playoffs, as Fairmont clinched the final spot with a 7-3 win over Springfield.  The Beavers finish the season 6-4.
