The Little Lions (8-3) led 21-0 at halftime thanks to 3-yard Jordan Misher touchdown, a 12-yard Peter Hafner scoring run and a 1-yard Brent Graham touchdown run.
State College then scored the first 20 points of the second half thanks to an 8-yard Tristen Lyons touchdown run, a 26-yard flea-flicker pass from Drew Friberg to Kellin Valentine and an Ian Barr 26-yard interception return.
DuBois’ lone score came on 11-yard touchdown pass from backup quarterback Zach Sloan, who replaced Matt Miller due to concussion related symptoms at halftime after Miller went 13-for-20 for 67 yards in the first half.
Misher, State College’s leading rusher, left with an injury after the first drive, a drive that saw him rush five times for 80 yards. Haffner added five carries for 61 yards. The Little Lions also played without starting quarterback Tyler Snyder, who sat for precautionary reasons after suffering an injury last week.
State College now awaits the winner of the Erie McDowell/Brashear game to be played next week in two weeks at a site and time to be determined.

Congratulations to Kyle Hopson (receiving), Dante Dawson (receiving), Zach Sloan (receiving), Braden Paulenellie (rushing yards), Matt Miller (passing yards) and Colin Read (receiving)! Dawson and Miller continue to lead the receiving and passing yard categories. Huge shout out to the O-Linemen for making this possible!!
With the disappointing loss to the Lancers of General McLane behind them, the Beavers look to spoil the undefeated season of the Karns City Gremlins to close out their 2015/2016 regular season; a repeat scenario of a year ago.
Karns City is currently ranked 5th in the Western PA football rankings, and honorable mention in the overall state rankings. They are a force to be reckoned with on offense and fast and furious on defense. Their goal – Take away the run and keep the Beavers one dimensional.
The Beavers defense, already thin due to injuries, will have their hands full with the wing T attack of the Gremlins, and the offense will have to account for a speedy Gremlin secondary intent on blanketing one of the top receiving corps in the state. It is time for the younger generation Beaver defenders to step it up behind the leadership of Senior Dom Foradora, Junior Ryan Pasternak and Junior Braden Paulenellie.
On offense, the O-line has shown they can protect their young sophomore quarterback as the typical Beaver air attack continues; while on the ground Braden Paulenellie and Wes Russell are quick and elusive. If the Beavers can balance their attack, they should squeak one out in the land of the Gremlins. DuBois 42, Karns City 35
EDINBORO, Pa. – Despite 444 yards passing from Matt Miller that put the sophomore over the 3,000-yard mark on the season, DuBois dropped a 41-19 decision at General McLane Friday night.
Miller was 18 of 32 passing and threw a pair of touchdowns including a 6-yard score to to Kyle Hopson, who had eight catches for 209 yards and an 80-yard bomb to Zach Sloan. Miller, who has now thrown for 3,114 yards and 28 touchdowns on the year, also threw a pick six in the game.
But while DuBois was airing it out, the Lancers (6-3) were using the ground to rack up yards, and lots of them. General McLane ran for 443 yards on the night led by 138 and a touchdown from Ryan Carpenter. Kyle Sult also chipped in 98 yards rushing for GM while going 3 of 4 passing for 23 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns.
DuBois (5-4) led 13-7 at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t contain the Lancer offense the final three quarters.
