The Clinton Dragons are 2-0 for the first time since 2009 after beating Seymour 13-8 on Friday night in a non-Region game in Clinton.
Ro Hardin ran for 92 yards and his first touchdown of the season, caught one pass for his second touchdown of the season and even completed a halfback option pass covering 42 yards to Anthony Krause. Cameron Washington gained 66 yards on the ground for the Dragons as well.
The Orange & Black defense was again the star of the show, though, following up its week one shutout win where they forced four turnovers by forcing four more and limiting the visiting Eagles to only 196 yards of offense.
Isaiah Washington’s efforts on defense earned him a nomination for WBIR Defensive Player of the Week after he recorded three and half tackles, forced a fumble and intercepted a pass. You can vote through Tuesday at noon on WBIR’s website at www.wbir.com.
Clinton has this week off to get ready for a showdown on September 8th at home against archrivals the Anderson County Mavericks in the 2017 renewal of the Crosstown Showdown. With Clinton having the week off, the WYSH Sports Crew will also teek the week off, with the Powell Brothers Mechanical Contractors Dragon Wagon returning September 7th, getting you ready for the following night’s Fox & Farley Friday Night Football broadcast.
