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.”
