The backfield tandem of Cameron Lane and Mitch Thomas were too much for defending Class 2A state champions, Holy Cross (1-3) to handle as Beechwood (1-2) picked up their first win of the season. The Tigers juniors were outstanding as Thomas ran for 175 yard and Lane posted 167 more. Each had three of Beechwood’s eight rushing touchdowns in the contest.
The Indians defense has looked very porous the past three weeks allowing 49, 67 and 54 points in those three losses. Holy Cross is giving up 47.5 points per contest on the season.
Beechwood will host rival CovCath next Friday night. Holy Cross looks to get back on track at Oldham County.
