Harrison wasn’t able to move the ball in its Jack Pine Conference road game at Beaverton Friday night. As a result, the Beavers, who have yet to lose a game in league action, picked up a 21-0 victory over the Hornets.

“We were not happy about the end result,” Harrison head coach Jamie Lipovsky said. “I felt we played well defensively but made too many mistakes offensively to call it a productive game.”
The Hornets were only down 7-0 at the half but the Beavers put the game out of reach with a pair of second half scores.

‘Beaverton is very good defensively,” Lipovsky said. “They are well coached and just kept coming at us. We struggled to maintain drives.”

The Hornets were led on offense by Hugh Brand, who ran 15 times for 51 yards and Cam Ashcroft who ran 10 times for 32 yards. Luke Cooper was two-of-four passing 17 yards.
Colin Dunn had 18 tackles, Austin Stamper had 11 and Kalub Pepper had six.

“I felt the defense played well,” Lipovsky said. “Dunn and Stamper had excellent games from linebacker. Pepper and Ashcroft played well in the secondary.”

Harrison (2-3 overall, 2-2 JPC) heads to Farwell (1-4, 0-4) tonight (Friday). The Eagles are coming off a 57-20 loss to Roscommon last week and while they haven’t won a game in league play yet, have been playing better football than in recent years.

“They are a dangerous team,” Lipovsky said. “We know that they will be playing hard for their homecoming and because they run the same offense as us, they will be well prepared to stop what we do best, run the ball. They are well coached and I am sure their game plan will be the same as ours; Keep the ball out of the opponents hands. We must play well defensively to win.”
