LISBON — Shenandoah dropped an overtime heartbreaker at Beaver Local, 13-12, Friday night.

The Zeps took a 6-0 lead in the second quarter on Kendal Sherman’s 55-yard touchdown run. The two-point conversion pass attempt failed.

Beaver answered with Garrett Givens’ 5-yard TD rush at the 8:27 mark in the third quarter to tie the game at 6-all after the kick attempt was blocked.

Neither school scored again in regulation, sending the game to OT.

The Zeps (1-2) got the ball first and scored on an Ethan Wiley 3-yard touchdown run. However, the two-point try was once again stuffed to make it 12-6.

That proved to be crucial when Ethan Lewis tied the game on an 11-yard TD burst and Beaver Local nailed the point-after kick to win the game 13-12.

Givens led Beaver with 113 yards on 112 carries.

The Zeps got 111 yards from Sherman on 18 totes. Quarterback Boone Jones was limited to 3-of-15 passing for 59 yards. They’ll try to even their record at 7 p.m. next Friday when they play host to Barnesville.

Point Pleasant 61, Warren 0

POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Visiting Warren was outgained 554-71 in a 61-0 loss to Point Pleasant Friday night.

The Warriors, who play at 7 p.m. next Friday at Cambridge, fell to 0-3.

Kurt Taylor provided most of Warren’s offense, completing 7 of 20 passes for 71 yards with an interception. His top receiver was Brandon Simoniette, who hauled in two passes for 30 yards.

The Warriors were stuffed for minus-19 yards on 16 carries in the game.

The Big Blacks were led by Brady Adkins’ 176 yards on eight carries, while four other players finished with at least 44 yards rushing. Adkins and Nick Parsons scored three touchdowns apiece for PPHS.

Ritchie 28, Frontier 13

ELLENBORO — Zach Cline and Garrett Owens were too much for visiting Frontier to handle here Friday night at Chuck Schofield Memorial Stadium as Ritchie County improved to 2-1 following a 28-13 victory versus the Cougars.

Eli Fickiesen’s 5-yard TD run and Briar West’s PAT gave the 1-2 Cougars, who play host at 7 p.m. next Friday to Cameron, a 7-0 lead after a quarter.

However, the Rebels got a 7-yard TD run by Cline and then an Owens two-point conversion run to go ahead 8-7. It was 14-6 at the break when Dakota Wayne hit Tatem McCloy for a 7-yard touchdown strike.

Owens, who finished with 17 carries and 93 stripes, found paydirt in the third quarter from 30 yards out to push the Rebels’ advantage to 20-7.

Fickiesen, though, scored from the 8 to close the deficit to 20-13 entering the fourth.

The only six-pointer in the final stanza was a 49-yard jaunt by Cline, who finished with 14 totes and a game-high 136 yards rushing. Owens added the conversion run.

Wayne hit on 2 of 4 passes for 45 yards with Blaine Bowie hauling in the other reception which covered 37 yards. Fickiesen rushed 15 times for 87 yards.

The Rebels return to action with a 7:30 p.m. Thursday kickoff in St. Marys.
