Beggs dominated Kiefer from the start last Friday to win 44-14 on the road remain undefeated in District 2A-7.
The Demons were led, as usual, by their two workhorse running backs.
CJ Brown and Red Martel combined for more than 350 yards and five touchdowns as Beggs improved to 7-1 overall and 5-0 in the district.
Beggs’ Jeremiah Olden broke open what was a defensive stalemate with a great punt return midway through the first quarter, setting up his offense from the Kiefer 29 yard line.
Two plays later, Martel powered into the end zone on a 10-yard run.
The two-point conversion by Olden was successful.
Beggs’ defense came up with two sacks and forced a punt, then a fantastic 54-yard run by Brown pushed the ball into Trojan territory.
Martel finished the drive with a 27-yard touchdown run on the next play.
Quarterback Ayden Hamilton ran in the two-point conversion to expand the lead to 16-0 at the end of the first quarter.
A fumble by Beggs deep in its own territory set up a short field as the Trojans started at the Beggs 2.
A touchdown pass to Nick Byrd from Marek Matheson cut the Trojan deficit in half, 16-8.
Toward the end of the first half, the Beggs defense came up with an interception courtesy of defensive back Kyron Grayson.
Working with a short field, Brown punched in his first score from just 8 yards away.
In the third quarter, the Beggs offense kept pounding away running the ball.
Hamilton had a nice 39-yard carry to set up his offense. Brown then ran in his second touchdown of the game from 13 yards away, inflating the lead to 30-8 midway through the third quarter.
The fourth quarter started with a Martel touchdown run of 72 yards, which effectively ended Martel and Brown’s nights.
Grayson took advantage of his increased chances and converted a 57-yard touchdown of his own midway through the fourth quarter.
Kiefer got a drive going late in the game, with backup quarterback Jaxon Worley completing a 17-yard pass to Jack Harris.
Harris also had a couple carries on the drive. The drive was capped off by a Harris 2-yard touchdown run, making the score 44-14.

Both Beggs and Victory Christian should be 6-0 in district play when they meet in Week 10, setting up a winner-take-all game for the district title.
