The DuBois Area Beavers extend their drought to four in a row, as they were unable to defeat the Bradford Owls, losing 72-49, Tuesday, February 3 at home.
This is an outstandingly tough time for the DuBois Beavers. They have not been able to find a way to win a few in a row all season.

\”My only regret with these seniors is that I was not able to coach them for three years,\” Coach Creighton said following Tuesdays contest.
Creighton obviously loves this team and does his best to prepare the Beavers. During the year at hand, things are bound to turn around for the Beavers. Despite the record (3-15) this year the Beavers have made the majority of their games tight battles that went right until the end. Sometimes they do get beat by a lot, but they always play until the end and they always do the best that they can.
