It all started when a former Ulysses head coach was informed that if he only won one game all season it could still be successful if that win was against Scott City. The last four years this rivalry has been dominated by the Beavers. Friday night wasn't any different.
The Beavers made a statement causing the Tigers to go four-and-out stopping them on a fourth-and-two. That point forward the Beavers never looked back. On the first play from scrimmage senior quarterback Trey O'Neil hooked up with his sophomore brother Trey for a 17 yard pass.
The pass set up a 12 yard touchdown run by Brenner Wells to take a 7-0 lead with 8:55 left to play in the first quarter. The Beavers wasted no time, causing the Tigers to once again go four-and-out. With 7:36 to play the Beavers fooled the Tiger defense when Brett O'Neil once again threw to brother Trey.
The trick play was designed to look like a bubble screen, but was quickly turned into a double pass to Drew Kite for a 38 yard touchdown. After the Beavers third and final score of the first half Tigers return man Josh Monson returned the kickoff for 35 yards giving his team a sign of life. That life was squandered when the Beavers once again forced another quick three-and-out.
The Beavers had the ball to start the second quarter and wasted no time putting more points on the board. Brett O'Neil threw a "Tim Tebow" like jump pass to Kite for his second touchdown of the game.
The Tigers were finally able to get on the board when defensive end Eric Acosta blocked a Beaver punt and took it to the house. At the end of the quarter Brett O'Neil made a 28 yard field goal making the score at half 29 - 6.
Scott City started off the second half just like the first making big plays and scoring quickly. Senior running back Dalton Buehler returned the opening kickoff down to the 2 yard line, finishing it off with a 2 yard touchdown run .
The Beavers had 200 rushing yards led by Buehler with 94. The Beavers dominated every aspect of the game, gaining 390 yards, putting up 49 points compared to the Tigers 185 yards and 13 points. Scott City advances to 4-0 with the victory and Ulysses moves to 2-2 on the season.
