Everything that has gone wrong this season for the Hampton-Dumont football team was reversed when it faced Clarion-Goldfield-Dows/CAL last Friday night.

The Bulldogs won the turnover, special teams and penalty battles despite being out-gained in yards 470-299 to emerge with a 41-34 victory at Clarion.

C-G-D/CAL opened up scoring on its first possession as Avery Harrington – who had three big plays for touchdowns for the Cowboys – went around end to score from 67 yards out less than five minutes into the first quarter.

But after forcing H-D to go three-and-out, the Bulldog’s Hunter Sutter came up with his first of two interceptions off of Kainan Braun. It was back-and-forth from there.
