“Not only do they have great athletes but our kids see the name on the jersey and they don’t give themselves a chance to compete. That’s the frustrating part as a coach,” he said.

On the field, Beechwood wasted little time getting on the board first.

After a nice kickoff return into Ludlow territory and a run up the middle by junior running back Ethan Stringer, junior receiver Brett Slusher took a screen pass from quarterback Kyle Fieger and gave the Tigers another first down at the Panthers’ 10. Two plays later, Stringer found the end zone to put Beechwood up 7-0 early in the first quarter.

But Ludlow’s drive only went backwards. After two negative yardage plays, sophomore quarterback Devlin Carter had to chase an errant snap over his head and fell on the ball deep in his own territory to force a Panthers’ punt.
