North Clay 7th grade caps season with Sullivan shutout

Friday, October 7, 2005

In a game limited to just two quarter, the North Clay seventh grade football team wrapped up a 7-1 season with a 22-0 victory over Sullivan.

Due to a lack of players, the game was brought to a halt after just a half of play in which the Knights put on a dominating performance to cap their year.

North Clay opened the game by receiving the ball and took over at their own 40-yard line and swept down the field for a score.

The drive that lasted for much of the quarter, came to a head when Trent Lancaster took the ball in for the touchdown. Zach Niehaus completed the two-point conversion on a sweep to put the Knights up 8-0.

Sullivan drove the ball down to North Clay's 35-yard line on their first possession before the Knights put an end to the drive.

North Clay began another lengthy drive, this one capped by a sweep to the right by Sean Hauser early in the second period and Niehaus again was good for the two-point conversion play and a 16-0 advantage.

North Clay halted the Arrows on their next drive and the Knights took over looking for another score. However, the Knights offense faltered a bit and were up against a fourth down call.

Coach John Russell called a timeout to set up a fake punt. The play would succeed and the Knights had new life on their drive.

Lancaster would hook up with Sam Miller on a pass play to set up a score from Hunter Robertson to makeup the final 22-0 tally.

The North Clay offensive line was a main cog in the Knights' offense with Jacob Musgrave, Taylor Pinnick, Brandon Mikesell, Ben Crafton and Eric Liddle leading the way. On defense, North Clay was lead by Andrew Butts, Beau Judd, Cameron Muncie and Brandon Pleake and Trent Montague picked off a pass late in the game that ended a Sullivan drive.

The North Clay teams would like to thank all of their fans and cheerleaders for their support throughout the season.
