Lancers run down the River Kings, 41-7

ELDRIDGE -- One week after winning its opener, the Clinton sophomore team dropped to 1-1 on Friday when it lost 41-7 to North Scott.

Freshman quarterback John Sullivan threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Theo Harris for Clinton’s lone score. Another freshman, Walker Chapman, was Clinton’s top rusher.

“Tonight was a struggle on both sides of the ball,” Clinton coach Mike Griswold said. “We moved the ball early on but continued to struggle with sustaining a drive and finishing it off with points. We had a couple of opportunities to answer North Scott and just couldn’t make enough plays to do that. Defensively we couldn’t stop the run, which kept us back on our heels the whole game.

“We’ll get back to work this week and get ready for an athletic Davenport Central football team (Friday) at home.”

  • Let the (real) games begin: It's NBA playoff time

    Finally, the NBA playoffs are set.

    It took the entire season to fill out those brackets.

    Overtime thrillers in Memphis and Charlotte, a go-ahead dunk in Oklahoma City to win a game and cap another scoring title for Kevin Durant, plus some good old-fashioned disinterest by Brooklyn ... all that, and more, on the final night of the season was needed before the eight conference-quarterfinal matchups in this season's NBA playoffs could be decided.
