BLISSFIELD HIGH SCHOOL: 13
The Clinton football team overcame a slow start to earn an impressive win over county rival Blissfield, 45-13, at Wegner Field Friday. The Royals entered the game ranked fifth in Division 6, while the Redskins were ranked 7th in Division 7.
After falling behind 7-0 following a Blissfield interception, the Redskins responded with 45 consecutive points to put the game out of reach. Jack Voll opened the scoring with a 65-yard touchdown run, followed by touchdown runs from Davey Campbell (24), Noah DeShano (2), and Brayden Randolph (4) to push the lead the 26-7 late in the first half. With just over a minute before half, quarterback Dylan Settles rattled of an impressive 48-yard touchdown scamper to push the advantage to 32-7, and all but put the game out of reach.

Voll led the Clinton ground attack with 167 yards on just eight carries, averaging over 20 yards per carry.
