FAIRFIELD, Ohio – Fairfield had no problem dispatching of Beavercreek last season, beating the Beavers by 20 points.
Friday’s rematch was closer, but the Indians never trailed and ended up 21-7 winners at Fairfield Stadium.
Fairfield (1-0) took the lead on a 1-yard run by running back Recoe Walker with 3:34 left in the first quarter.
Beavercreek (0-1) tied it with 35 seconds left in the first half when Michael Berry ran in a 1-yard run.
The Indians’ Tyron Harper gave Fairfield the lead for good with 4:53 left in the third quarter, catching a pass from Ryan Nuss and running the rest of the way for an 84-yard touchdown that made it 14-7.
Four minutes later, Harper scored the final Fairfield touchdown when he hooked up with Nuss again, this time for an 8-yard TD strike.
“I feel like everyone did good, especially the defense,” Harper said. “And all my touchdowns – I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my line or without my wide receiver, T.C. Wells”.
Fairfield makes its first road trip of the season next week when the Indians visit Gahanna Lincoln in central Ohio on Sept. 6.
