Bluefield played without their Head Coach Fred Simon who had been ejected in the playoff game during the 2013 season which resulted in a one game suspension. Therefore his son Freddy served as the interim coach for the annual rivalry game. Graham graduated 17 seniors and was playing with a young team. They also lost their starting quarterback to an injury before the half and that definitely had an impact but the G-men who only trailed 29-21 at the half. In the end, the Beavers just wore them down. Offense ruled the night as Bluefield compiled 573 total yards and 9 touchdowns to crush the G-Men for the 2nd consecutive year 76-48.
