    Russellville at Beechwood Updates - 1A Semi-Final

    Please use this thread for all updates tonight.

    If anyone knows of any broadcasts or other info about the game please link it in this thread.

    From our 1A Expert @Voice of Reason here at BGP:

    #4 Russellville (12-1) at #2 Beechwood (12-1) - This is the speed game. Both teams feature explosively fast backs. For Russellville it is RB Johnny Drumgole and running QB Jaylyn McMurry. For Beechwood it is the 1 -2 punch of RB's Aiden Justice and James Davis. Beechwood's offense is much more balanced with QB Brayden Burch throwing for over 2,000 yards on the year with 23 TD's and only 4 INT's while completing better than 60% of his passes. Russellville's passing game is one of surprise. They pound you repeatedly with their running attack and then sneak a receiver deep on you for big plays. They don't throw it often but they make it hurt when they do. Which defense can get more stops against the high powered offenses? That is what will determine the winner in this game of speed on speed on the turf in Ft. Mitchell.

    Region 1 Championship

    Russellville has been the prohibitive favorite to win region 1 since the first snap of the season and they did what everyone expected. The Panthers used their single wing rushing game and speed to roll over Bethlehem 48-12. Russellville rushed for 578 yards in the game. Leading the way was explosive RB Johnny Drumgole running for 194 yards on just 9 carries. QB Jaylyn McMurry was right behind him with 153 yards on just 7 carries. McMurry only threw 3 passes in the game but he was 3-3 for 79 yards and a TD. No surprises in this region as Russellville moves on the the state semifinals.

    Region 2 Championship

    Beechwood also was the clear favorite in their region and they delivered as well. Their regional title game was not a walk over despite the 42-7 final score. Kentucky Country Day proved their 10-2 record was no fluke as they pushed Beechwood hard in the first half. Ky. Country Day held Beechwood's offense in check and forced their way to a 7-7 tie late in the first half. The backbreaker for Ky. Country Day came almost immediately after their only score late in the first half when Beechwood QB Brayden Burch hit WR Daniel Mescher with a 56 yard pass that put the ball inside the 5. The Tigers scored a couple plays later to go back ahead 14-7 at halftime. In the second half it was all Beechwood. They completely dominated with their defense and used their running game to pull away. The Tigers move into the state semifinals for the 9th time in the past 10 years.

    0-0 after 1. Both teams had one long drive that ate clock but then the defense turned them away.
