Clifton rallies to crush Bruceville-Eddy

By Brett Voss
 
Breaking a three-game losing streak could not have come at a better time for the Clifton Cubs. And with their first victory in a month, the Cubs put themselves within striking distance of their first post-season appearance since 2005. Overcoming a 15-12 halftime deficit, the Cubs scored 35 unanswered points in the second half to maul their way past the Bruceville- Eddy Eagles, 47-15, in a key District 10-3A, Division II showdown on the road last Friday night.

District favorite Rogers downs Clifton

By Brett Voss
 
When the Clifton Cubs hosted the Rogers Eagles at Cub Stadium last Friday night, the Eagles showed everyone on hand why they were the pre-season favorite to win the District 10-3A, Division II title. For most of the first half of play, the Cubs dominated the game. At the end of the first quarter, Clifton actually led 6-0 on a 53-yard scamper right up the middle by Cub quarterback Tanner Thomas. The blocked point after, though, turned out to be a harbinger of things to come and the Cubs would lose, 37-6.
