BEACH - With a slot in the 9-man state postseason on the line, the Beach football team come up short, falling to Central McLean 33-0 on Friday, Oct. 5 from Beach High School.

The two teams entered Friday’s tilt tied in the Region 5 standings at 3-3, but with the Cougars win, the Buccaneers’ season ended.  

Central McLean senior quarterback Trapper Jacobs took command of the game not with his arm, but his legs. Jacobs had 1-yard rushing touchdowns in the first and second quarter. In the third quarter, he reached the end zone for a third time, on that occasion from two yards out and connected with junior wide receiver Ty Snyder with a 15-yard touchdown reception.

Jacobs finished his night with 141 rushing yards on twelve attempts, while completing 3 of his 8 passes for 44 yards.

Junior running back Kayden Hornberger added the final blow in the fourth with a 3-yard rushing touchdown.
