The Beaver Dam High football team jumped out to an early 8-0 lead against Arizona rival Fredonia Friday night at BDHS.

Unfortunately, the D-Backs could not hold the advantage as the visiting Lynx rallied to score two touchdowns to pull out a 12-8 non-conference victory.

The loss dropped the Diamondbacks to 0-2 on the season.

Senior Cesar Soto got BDHS on the scoreboard first when he scored on a short run, but the lead was short lived.

Despite the loss, Beaver Dam did get some good news when the school’s football field was deemed playable after playing the season opener two weeks ago at Virgin Valley High School in neighboring Mesquite.

A weed killer used on the field last month killed most of the grass, necessitating the move to VVHS. The field is mostly all the way back with just a few non-green spots remaining.

The Diamondbacks will look for their first victory of the season Friday when they host The Meadows School of Las Vegas. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.

The Meadows, which is playing an independent schedule this season, is currently 2-1 overall. The Mustangs have wins over Sierra Lutheran (48-21) and Green Valley Christian (39-6) while losing 52-0 to Chadwick School of Pales Verdes Peninsula, California.

BDHS will travel to Las Vegas Sept. 20 for its first true road contest at Mountain View Christian School.
