Beaver River 13, Dolgeville 12
BEAVER FALLS – The Beaver River Beavers scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter Friday and defeated Dolgeville’s Blue Devils 14-13 in a rematch of Section III’s 2022 Class D football championship game.
Dolgeville was a 44-24 winner in that title game when it completed a second-consecutive 10-0 march through Section III competition. The Blue Devils had also beaten the Beavers 24-20 the last time they traveled to Beaver River in 2019.

The 2023 Beavers (1-2) had scored first Friday and led 7-0 at halftime before Dolgeville (0-2) found the end zone twice in the fourth quarter and took a lead.
Landon Rice ran 9 yards for the game’s final touchdown and put the Beavers up by one point. The PAT attempt was no good.
The Beavers opened the scoring with a short Derrick Zehr-to-Josh Bush touchdown pass in the second quarter. Zehr completed 16 of 23 passes for 114 yards but had one intercepted and run back for the touchdown that gave Dolgeville its lead in the fourth quarter.
Trevor Borst had scored a 1-yard touchdown to put the Blue Devils on the scoreboard, but a failed two-point try left the visitors trailing 7-6.
Rice led the Beavers with 63 rushing yards on 12 carries.
The Blue Devils also led in the fourth quarter of their season-opening 14-12 loss at Sandy Creek last week.
Dolgeville plays its home opener next Saturday against the Herkimer Magicians. Beaver River plays at Westmoreland/Oriskany Saturday.
