  It was going to be a tough task beating South Central Calhoun on their home field last Friday night, but certainly not impossible. The Clarion-Goldfield varsity gave it all they had but still didn’t quite have enough in a 28-19 road loss to the Titans.

  “Whereas we generally played well in many aspects of the game, it is still a disappointing loss,” said head coach Paul Hansch. “I thought we played technically solid in the first half, but lacked emotion. In the second half, we showed a lot more enthusiasm which was reflected in our offensive production and the forcing of two turnovers in the second half.”

  After both teams felt each other out a bit in the early going, the Titans drew first blood on a 32-yard touchdown pass at the 6:09 mark of the opening period. The PAT was good making it 7-0. With 7:07 left before halftime, the home team found the end zone again on a seven-yard touchdown pass. The kick was good, making the halftime score 14-0.
