Beulah bounces back again
The Beulah Miners lost their first game of the season 12-0 to Hazen, but the next week against Central Cass they recovered. On Friday the Miners found themselves in a similar spot, needing to bounce back after their road loss to St. Mary’s. Beulah bounced back and moved closer to a season-extending playoff spot.
In the first quarter Beulah came out looking to shake their scoring troubles against St. Mary’s. Against St. Mary’s, Beulah failed to score even though it had drives end deep in St. Mary’s territory. But this game was different and the Miners scored 23 points in the opening quarter.
Kamron Unruh gave the Miners the lead with a 9-yard touchdown run. Unruh added two more points on the point after with a run. Then Landon Battest grabbed a
63-yard pass from Casey Walcker for six more points. Walcker followed with rush in a two-point conversion making the score 16-0.
The Miners scored one more time before the first quarter ended but went with a kick after the score. Matt Krizan ran for a 40-yard score and Derek Morris kicked the extra point, making the score 23-0.
Things kept going the Miners’ way in the second quarter. Well, at least Luke Blood’s way. The 235-pound running back ran for two scores in the quarter, a 4-yarder and a 24-yarder. After the first extra point the Miners converted a traditional point after attempt – Morris kicked an extra point. But after the second score the Miners took an non-traditional approach.
