Dragons equal last year’s win total

Clinton 10 Scott 0…The Clinton Dragons got the Randy McKamey era off to a successful start Friday in Clinton, shutting out the visiting Scott Highlanders 10-0 to equal their win total from a year ago.

The victory was Clinton’s first shutout since blanking Halls 32-0 in 2014 and their first season-opening win since 2010, also against Halls.

Clinton’s defense forced four turnovers (one interception, three fumbles) and held Scott to a mere 158 yards of total offense. Travon Hill and Trevor Linderman combined for three sacks, while Hill also recovered a fumble, as did Mazon Jenkins and Jayven Booker.

Clinton gained 143 of its 176 total yards on the ground thanks to nine different Dragon ball carriers, led by Isaiah Washington, who scored the game’s only touchdown on a seven-yard run in the third quarter. Garrett Zody connected on a 28-yard field goal with under 4:00 minutes to play to seal the win for CHS.
