Beulah turned it over on a fumble inside the 10-yard line on its first possession. Weaver took full advantage of that opportunity, getting a TD on an eight-yard run by JohnnyMartin. Another fumble on the second Bobcat possession led to more points.

A Weaver defender picked up the loose football and raced 60 yards to the north end zone to build

their early lead to 14-0 with 4:46 left in the opening period.

Their final score of the opening half came from five yards out after they intercepted a

pass deep in Bobcat territory and ran it back to the five. A short run by Martin and a

two-point pass play extended the lead to 22-0 with 8:26 left before halftime.
