Storm Lake Community Celebrates a Beaver Win at Second Annual Community Night

Senior quarterback Cole Miller and sophomore wideout Eric Pacheco accounted for a handful of big plays, including a 46-yard touchdown with just less than two minutes remaining.

The Beaver Football team won their second consecutive season opener with a victory over Hamline University under the stadium lights on Aug. 30, with the support of the Storm Lake community in the stands. The final score was 39-27.

Thursday evening’s admission was free to the public and featured a “white out” theme, with students donning white “Defend the Lake” t-shirts. The tailgating lot opened at 3 p.m. where Beaver Boosters grilled for the fans. Beaver tattoos and more prizes were given away, and the community had the opportunity to take photos with Buford T. Beaver and watch a halftime performance by the Storm Lake High School Drumline. After the win, the team gathered near the student section to sing BVU's Alma Mater in unison, followed by a new Beaver Nation chant marking a new game-winning tradition. 

Senior quarterback Cole Miller and sophomore wideout Eric Pacheco accounted for a handful of big plays, including a 46-yard touchdown with just less than two minutes remaining in the game. This is head coach Grant Mollring’s second year coaching the Beavers. The team will return to action on Saturday, Sept. 8 in Nebraska against Concordia University.
