Clifton-Clyde Soars Past Victoria

Victoria KnightsCLYDE-Brant Douglas scored four touchdowns and two Clifton-Clyde running backs rushed for more than 100 yards each as the Eagles outpaced Victoria 54-30 Friday night at Ed Buller Field.

Fourth ranked Clifton-Clyde stunned the Knights with 24 first quarter points off three touchdowns: a 33-yard scoring pass from Quarterback Aiden Rudolph to Douglas, a two-yard run by Christian Seifert and a one-yard run by Rudolph. Victoria cut the lead in half with a pair of touchdowns early in the second quarter courtesy of a 40-yard run by Quarterback Cooper Windholz and a four-yard jaunt by Running Back Jayvon Pruitt to make the score 24-12 after the Knights failed on both two-point conversion attempts.

After Rudolph scored from four yards out to widen Clifton-Clyde's lead once more, Windholz connected with Walker Braun on a 10-yard touchdown pass with 12 seconds remaining in the second quarter allowing Victoria to cut the deficit to 30-18 at halftime.

The Kinghts got the ball first in the third quarter but after a penalty set them back, they were forced to punt and Clifton-Clyde scored on their next two possessions with a 64-yard touchdown pass from Drake Steinbrock to Douglas and a four-yard run by Douglas to grow their advantage to 42-18.  Pruitt drew Victoria closer with a 23-yard run late in the third quarter before the Eagles scored on their first two possessions of the fourth period thanks to a 17-yard run by Steinbrock and an eight-yard scamper by Douglas.  Victoria's last tally of the night came with five minutes remaining when Windholz found Caden Oberle for a 15-yard touchdown pass.

Clifton-Clyde rolled up 483 yards of total offense with Steinbrock leading all rushers 135 yards on 24 carries while Seifert carried 18 times for 105 yards.  As a team the Eagles registered a total of 65 carries on the ground.  For Victoria, Pruitt tallied 90 yards on 16 carries with two touchdowns while Windholz rushed six times for 51 yards and a score.  Windholz also completed six of 13 passes for 44 yards and two touchdowns as the Knights finished with 217 yards of total offense.

Victoria (3-2, 1-1) returns home next Friday to host eight-man newcomer Washington County.
