Kings of the Mountain…

Written By: Beaver Swami - Aug• 26•16

Kings of the Mountain…

Yes, the Swami was in attendance at the Mansell Beaver Pond for opening night as the Bison strutted their way into town. For years, DuBois has attempted to welcome them, and year after year our offer was turned down. The PIAA reclassification changed all of that, forcing the bison to graze their way up Rockton Mountain and face the Beaver attack!

They came to the pond as honorable mention in the state rankings, and the majority of sports writers wrote our furry warriors off weeks ago – so willing to jump on the band wagon and declare the Bison Kings of the Mountain. They must not have been paying attention to our summer workouts, looked beyond how well our boys played against 2, 6A powerhouse teams at our scrimmage and started thinking about week 2 of the season assuming the beavers would be 0-1  – but the wheels fell off that band wagon as the Beavers defended their pond and the dam remains intact!

To say this was a team effort is an understatement; a complete triumph is better suited to describe the first of 10 Friday night lights! On both sides of the ball, the tree shredders showed their tenacity – wearing down the Bison. A total and complete team effort! Way to go boys, you are underdogs no more!

And it begins…

Written By: Beaver Swami - Aug• 21•16

October 20th, 2016 – Yes the Swami was observing the scrimmage held at the E.J. Mansell Beaver Pond, the first test for our furry warriors. The 2016 Beavers faced off against 2 of the toughest 6A teams in the state; State College and Williamsport. They did so without linemen Dylan Guiher and Tyler Cordwell as well as quarterback Matt Miller. It was a rocky beginning as State College immediately punched a hole in the Beaver defense’s dam and scored several times on their first 15 play offensive possession. What appeared to be a demoralizing blow turned out to be the match that lit the fire as the pond builders quickly repaired the hole that was punched by the Little Lions and dug in. The remainder of the day witnessed a furious defense mounted by our buck toothed tree shredders and the E.J. Mansell beaver pond remained intact.

On offense, we witnessed several good drives led by an offensive line that was drastically undersized compared to both visiting teams. The Beavers big fellas showed the crowd that it is the size of the heart that matters anchored the Beaver attack. Quarterback Braden Paulenellie was calm and poised in his first test, and the receivers and running backs showed no fear as they pounded their way into the line and swarmed the secondary.

Thanks to the PIAA’s new classification system, an old foe will be coming to call on opening night, August 26, 2016. Yes, the Bison of Clearfield will be looking to smash the Mansell Beaver Dam and claim the title, “King of the Mountain.” This will be a tough first test as the Bison will feature D1 prospects on both sides of the ball and once again, the Beavers will be without their gunslinger Matt Miller. Not to worry Beaver faithful, Braden Paulenellie will once again call the signals and Senior Ryan Pasternak will anchor both the offensive and defensive lines. Dalton Kruzelak, Brock Adams and Cole Meighen will carry the rock and Kyle Hopson will lead the receiving corps. Coach Pasternak will school the defense in the art of Bison hunting and contain the stampede. Yes, it will be tough – too tough to predict the score. But what the Swami witnessed at the scrimmage has him leaning toward a narrow Beaver victory. Come one, come all to opening night – the show promises to impress!

Answers are coming

It is time…As the Mansell turf begins to warm and the dew from the evening before is gone at 10am, October 20th, some questions regarding the 2016 season will be answered as the Williamsport Millionaires and State College Little Lions come to the beaver pond for the preseason scrimmage. The 2015 season will now be officially in the books, and the 2016 season will begin to take shape as our furry warriors put themselves to the test. Will the offense keep pace with the same tenacity and will the defense continue to build on the improvements they showed during the last half of 2015? Our old foe’s from State College always prove to be one of the better teams in the state, while the Millionaires are a relative unknown.  Each will provide a true test and the picture for 2016 will become ever clearer!

Good luck tomorrow to our dam builders, all of your hard summer work is about to pay off!
