Thurston High School
Clarenceville High School
For the second week in a row Clarenceville (Div.5/6) football battled a much larger opponent in Redford Thurston (Div. 3).
The game began roughly for the Trojans, with the opening kickoff returned for a touchdown. Thurston would score again quickly after a few offensive series by the Trojans. The Trojans were able to connect on one offensive series in the second quarter. #4 Terrence Ealy (Jr.) connected on a long touchdown pass (66 yards) with #6 Kyle Nolan (Sr.). To finish out the first half scoring, Thurston scored just before the clock ran out.
The Trojans again come out and battled during the second half. #4 Ealy and #6 Nolan connected again, this time on a short 4 yard score on fourth down. The offense sustained a few more drives during the 3rd and 4th quarters but were unable to score again.
The Trojans were led offensively by #4 Ealy who went 9/25 for 121 yards 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. #6 Nolan led all receivers with 6 catches for 102 yards and 2 touchdowns. # 2 Dion Turner (Sr.) led the rushing attack with 8 carries for 52 yards.
The Clarenceville Trojans will again look to get into the win column when they face Redford Union on September 15th.
