Hyde — The Clearfield Junior High football teams played ungracious hosts to the visiting Altoona Roosevelt teams on Wednesday night at the Bison Sports Complex.
The 8th grade squad posted their first shut out of the season by a 12-0 final score.
Derek Morgan scored both touchdowns for the Bisons, one a 12 yard run around the left end in the 3rd quarter, the second being a 32 yard run around the right end in the 4th quarter.
Both 2-point conversion attempts fell just short of the goal line.
The 8th grade team, now 3-5 on the year, will finish its season next Thursday at Central Mountain.
In the nightcap, the 7th grade squad won in impressive fashion 22-6.
The offense was headlined by quarterback Curtis Frye. He scored the first 2 Bison touchdowns on bootlegs, the second being a 30 yarder. He then hit Beau Swales for their first 2-point conversion.
Ryan Hertlein bolted 40 yards for the final Bison TD, with Alex Weaver adding the 2 points that set the final score at 22.
The Bison \”D\” was anchored by linemen Eric White and Corey Knepp. Tim Holt also spent alot of time in the Roosevelt backfield. Cody Lansberry, with his numerous open field tackles, and Frye, with his 2 interceptions also performed well for the defense.
The 7th graders, now 4-1 on the year, will also finish their season next week at Central Mountain.
Next week\’s triple header will feature the 5-2 Freshman team also.
