Beavers lose to rival Centerville
CENTERVILLE — Although dominating most of the match in both possession and opportunities, Beavercreek lost to Greater Western Ohio Conference, Central Division opponent Centerville 1-0, Tuesday at Centerville High School.

Later in the half, Centerville had a free kick opportunity that was turned away with a diving save by Beavercreek’s goalkeeper, senior Chris Cleverly.
Early in the second half, Beavercreek again was controlling the game, but a dipping strike from Centerville’s Jarrod Ferstl eluded Cleverly just under the cross bar for the first and only goal of the match.
