  • The Dillon Beavers are evolving into a team with a balanced offense and a demoralizing defense and demonstrated that excellence Friday night at Hamilton with a crushing 55-20 win over the conference leader coming into the game. Hamilton entered the contest with a 1-0 league mark, while the game opened Dillon’s conference encounters. The...
