BEALLSVILLE - Chase Kinemond passed for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth and a running-back-by-committee also scored three times as Shadyside rolled past homestanding Beallsville, 40-14, on Friday night.
While the state-ranked Tigers (6-0) remained unblemished, coach Mark Holenka wasn't exactly thrilled with his team's performance at times.
''This was like an Oreo cookie game - chocolate on both sides,'' Holenka said. ''We just got done with a tough Linsly team and we know Wheeling Central is ahead. This was a tough game.
''As a coaching staff, we probably let down a little bit, and so did the kids, but we bounced back after stumbling a little at the start.''
Shadyside's Cory Banco fell on a Blue Devils fumble at the Tigers 38, and two plays later Kinemond found Chris Littell in the right flat for a 26-yard gain. However, Littell broke free down the far sidelines and outran everyone to the end zone to make it 7-0.
Ian Baker returned a Beallsville (1-5) punt 31 yards to set the Tigers up with good field position on their next possession. Starting at their own 46, Littell capped a six-play, 54-yard march with a 13-yard scamper off left tackle.
The Blue Devils found some success against the Tigers defense through the airways as senior Teryn Jarrett passed for 190 of his 260 yards in the first half. His 32-yard strike to Mikey Palmer advanced the ball to the Shadyside 24, but his next attempt was picked off by Brooks Ramsey at the 16.
''That was two times we were down there and shot ourselves in the foot,'' Beallsville coach Paul Kanzigg said. ''We were moving the ball on them, but then we made mistakes.
''Defensively, we gave up a couple of big plays and you can't do that against a team like Shadyside.''
After an exchange of punts, Kinemond put the finishing touches on a four-play, 54-yard scoring drive when he scrambled 32 yards to paydirt. He started to his right and cut back to the middle before breaking outside to the near sideline. He stumbled around a pack of players and just got inside the pylon for a 20-0 lead.
Beallsville answered right back as it drove 75 yards on 10 plays.
Jarrett fired a fourth-down bubble screen to Palmer and the swift sophomore turned into a 15-yard touchdown. Mason Campbell's extra point was good as the Blue Devils pulled to within 20-7 with 1:35 left in the half.
A key play on the drive was a 42-yard hookup between Jarrett and Gage Steele.
