HS Football – Beavers Defense Holds Western in Closing Seconds
In the end, the Harper Creek Beavers needed a defensive stand in the final minute to stay undefeated and hang on to the I-8's top spot against the Western Panthers.
The Beavers became one of two playoff eligible squads in the area after earning their sixth win on the season (Olivet was victorious Friday). Three other area teams sit just a win away from a postseason lock - Athens, Climax-Scotts and Union City.
The three 8-Man squads in the area also continued to make the Southern Michigan 8-Man League race more interesting.
