CHS sophomores fall
RIVERDALE — Coach Mike Griswold was pleased with the performance despite Clinton’s 28-14 loss to Pleasant Valley in sophomore football Friday.
“Tonight was probably our best game of the year,” Griswold said. “We came out ready to play and took advantage of some early PV turnovers. Our defense was very good all night, just giving up a few big plays that would end up putting us in too deep of a hole to dig ourselves out of.”
