On Thursday night October 22nd the Clear Lake J.V. team headed to Boone and suffered a heart breaking defeat to the Torreadors 36-33. Clear Lake started the game well taking the opening kickoff and drove right down the field to take the lead on Brice Wilcke’s 3 yard touchdown run. Brandon Lo’s PAT was good and the Lions were up 7-0. It would stay 7-0 after the first quarter and the 2nd quarter fireworks started. Boone would score 22 points with their big play passing game. Chase Lester scored on his first carry of the game, a 70 yard run and Lester would throw a 50 yard touchdown to Zack Huey. Both conversions were no good for the Lions and Boone led at the half 22-19. The Lions would get the only score of the third quarter on another big Chase Lester touchdown run of 55 yard and Lester would score the 2 point conversion. Lions 27-22. Boone would strike first on a short field after a Lions fumble in the fourth to take the lead 28-27. Boone tried to run out some clock and time outs by the Lions forced them to punt. The snap was bad and the Lions recovered on the Boone 44. On their first play the Lions Cody Maulsby got outside and tap danced the sideline 44 yards to the end zone. The 2 pt. conversion was no good. 33-28 Lions with 1:18 left in the game. Boone did not quit and would strike on a 30 yard touchdown pass with 18 seconds left to defeat the Lions 36-33. The Lions J.V. finished the season with a 5-3 record this year. Coaches Feuerbach, Puttman, and Hamilton want to thank the players for great effort every week and adapting to changes every week it seemed. We look forward to seeing you keep improving at the varsity level in the coming years.
