Clinton 29 Campbell County 21…Needing to win both of their final two games of the regular season to make the playoffs, the Clinton Dragons arguably took care of the tougher of the two games on Friday as they dominated time of possession and downed Campbell County 29-21, snapping a five-game losing streak to the Cougars.
Clinton outgained the Cougars 425 to 260, running over twice as many plays (71 to 35), and holding the ball for a ridiculous 35 minutes and 27 seconds.
Cody Parker gained 188 total yards, 115 on the ground and 73 and a touchdown receiving. Josh Breeden gained 83 yards on 25 carries. Luke Harrison ran for a one-yard touchdown, as did Blake Cooper. Harrison also completed 8 of his 12 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns (one to Parker, the other to Brantley Nichols) and one interception.
Johnny Hunter and Cooper each intercepted a pass in the game, while Reagan McKamey recovered a fumble. The Dragon defense also held Cougar running back Drew Jordan to 44 yards on nine carries.
Landon Addington threw three touchdown passes for Campbell County.
If Clinton wins at Karns on Friday, the Dragons will be in the playoffs, while the Cougars must beat West to earn a postseason berth.
