Clifton eliminated in season finale

By Brett Voss.

For the Clifton Cubs, it proved to be a matter of too little, too late. And in the process, their season came to an early and abrupt end. Despite rallying to score with 2:54 left in the game, Clifton never got the ball back and fell short of the playoffs in their win-and-in showdown as Maypearl hung on for a playoff-clinching 33-28 victory last Friday night. Senior quarterback Zack Thiele threw for three touchdowns and amassed 279 total yards for the Cubs (2-4 in distirct, 2-8 overall), but it wasn’t enough as Maypearl (3-3, 4-6) scored twice in the fourth quarter to hold Clifton off.

By Brett Voss
