Wildcats handle Dragons, 42-6, remain tied atop Region standings

Friday night, the Oak Ridge Wildcats downed the Clinton Dragons 42-6 for their 8th straight win in the series and their 18th victory in the last 20 meetings.

Wildcat QB Johnny Stewart completed 10 of his 18 pass attempts for 181 yards and 3 touchdowns, while also scoring on the ground. Two of his scoring passes went to Caleb Martin, one covering 25 yards and the other covering 78 yards on 3rd-and-38 with :31 to play in the first half. Jeremy Mitchell got the scoring started for Oak Ridge (6-2, 4-0 Region 3-5A) with a 21 yard catch in the first quarter. T.J. Johnson scored on defense for Oak Ridge as well, taking an interception back 24 yards just 19 seconds into the second half.

Clinton got on the board in the third quarter thanks to a Josh Breeden 86-yard touchdown romp. He finished the game with 99 yards rushing on just four carries.

For the night, the Dragons (2-6, 0-4) managed 118 yards of offense, just 13 through the air, and were held to minus-6 yards of total offense in the first half.

The teams combined for 20 penalties in the game, and Clinton turned the ball over three times, Oak Ridge just once.
