The Big Reds’ JV team pushed visiting Beaver Local to the limit before falling by the final score of 26-15.
Trailing 20-15 with just over a minute left, the Big Reds were marching in to take the lead with a 1st and goal on the 7-yd line. The Beavers defense stood tall though and forced a fumble, picked it up and returned it over 90 yards for the touchdown to seal the win.
The Big Reds’ two scores came via a five-yard touchdown pass to Nick Materkoski from QB Jaren Cash. Cash scored the other touchdown on a 16-yard run.
The JV team will be back in action at Nelson Field on Monday when they host St. Clairsville.
