PC Notes: This past Saturday the Blue Hose football team played a top 25 ranked football team for the second week in a row and for the second week in a row came up just a little short as they lost to Coastal Carolina by a score of 10-7… Darrell Bridges recorded his fifth game of 100+ rushing yards this season, amassing 104 yards on the ground on 26 carries with one touchdown, his seventh of the season… For more information about the game, click here… The Blue Hose will have this Saturday off and return to action hosting the Gardner-Webb Running Bulldogs on Halloween.
- JV Football: Broome 16 – CHS 14… In JV football action last night at Wilder Stadium, the Clinton JV football team fell to Broome 16-14 in a postponed game from a couple of weeks ago… Broome returned the opening kickoff for a TD and added the 2-point conversion to take an early 8-0 lead… Titus Hood picked up the Red Devils first score early in the 2nd quarter to make it 8-6 as the extra point conversion failed… The Red Devils took the lead in the 2nd half on a 40 yard scoring pass from Layne Cunningham to Tguan Comer… Ty Priestly added the 2-point conversion to make the score 14-8 Red Devils… Unfortunately the Red Devils did not hold the lead as Broome scored the winning TD and 2-point conversion with less than 5 minutes to go in the game to make the final 16-14 as the Red Devils just could not respond… By the way, in action last Thursday night the JVs fell to Union County by a score of 14-0… The team will travel to Chester this Thursday for a 6:30 pm contest with the Cyclones
- Tennis: CHS 7 – Emerald 0… In their final match of the regular season, the Red Devil tennis team took a 7-0 win over Emerald yesterday… Gracie Waldron, Mason Paige Gambrell, Elizabeth Jones, Molly Scarborough and Izzy Worley all took dominating wins in singles action over their opponent… Mary Katherine Kelly & Kayleigh Pitts teamed up to take as one-sided win as the #1 doubles team… Clinton took the final win of the match as Emerald defaulted in # 2 doubles action…. The team ended its season with a perfect 11-0 mark and will host Wren in the opening round of the AAA Playoffs which I think will be a week from this Thursday on the 29th.
- Alexus Moore participated in Upper State Golf Tournament.. The Raiders Alexus Moore had a score of 97 at the Upper State Girls Golf Tournament at Fox Run CC… This score was equal to her score in last week’s Region I tournament also held at Fox Run… She placed in the top half of the field…Coach Jim Iacuone stated “She drove the ball well today and was good in the fairways. However she didn’t putt the ball as well as she had earlier in the season and that cost her some strokes. .. I thought she had a really good season for us and she will definitely be a bright spot for our team next year as we transition to a new classification and region.”… Region I-AAAA had 3 of the four teams that qualified for Upper State advance to the State Tournament next week (Easley, Greenville and TL Hanna)… Mikela Duncan of Hillcrest was an individual qualifier for the state tournament.
