Red Devils are hurricane-tossed

 

CLINTON HIGH SPORTS ROUND-UP.

 

 

 

Red Devils are blown away; Pendleton up next

 

Clinton had two runners top the 100-yard mark, but Wren was overwhelming in all three phases – offense, defense and special teams – in Piedmont Friday night.

The Category 5 Hurricanes blew past the Red Devils, 63-13; next up for Clinton is Pendleton this Friday for Homecoming.

Kimon Quarles ran 22 times for 129 yards, and found the end zone with 9:23 left to play. Jykorie Gary toted the rock for 107 yards on 16 carries, and hit paydirt with 5:47 left in the game. Greg Sanders added 26 yards to a Red Devil running attack that had 50 opportunities for 259 yards. Wren ran for 66 yards.

Davis Wilson completed two passes in six attempts for 41 yards, before leaving the game (3rd quarter) on a hit that was flagged for a penalty. Wren threw for 466 yards – 385 by Joe D. Owens.

The game showed how far the Red Devils have to go against top-flight opposition under football head coach Corey Fountain in his first season at Clinton. Wren improves to 3-1; Clinton is 1-3, having defeated Powdersville and losing to Wren, Broome and Laurens, a 54-26 winner Friday over Wade Hampton.

Fountain told Saturday Morning Rewind, “We just gotta take care of the football. … Never the way you want to start the ball game with a pick 6, but you’re not going to win a game 0-0 anyway; they start off 7-0 on us and we came back (two drives stopped by turnovers). … Owens is a great quarterback. He’s been a great quarterback at Mauldin, he’s a great quarterback at Wren. I think he was a great quarterback at Carolina at one time. They have great players, and they did what they needed to do to win the game.

“We just got to get better. We’ve got to get faster and stronger; these young guys have bought in to the weight room.”

Wren scored on the game’s first play – a Briggs Cox interception of a Wilson pass and 45-yard TD run. Two passing TDs and a run score later, Wren scored on a blocked punt. The Hurricanes piled on three 3rd quarter touchdowns after that.

Jeremiah Boyd had an interception, and Juan Lawson added a PAT for the Red Devils. Quarles scored from 1 yard out, and Gary’s score was a 47-yard run. Clinton committed five turnovers.

This Friday’s opponent, Pendleton, lost to Belton-Honea Path, 42-21.
