Dawgs earn a big “W” – chapter 2
The Dawgs did it on the road! Clinton County picked up win No. 2 of the season last Friday night – this being a nice 28-0 shutout against the Raiders of McCreary Central .
Seems Clinton County enjoys going up against opponents that use Raiders as mascots – the previous win came a week earlier against the Trimble County Raiders .
That sends Clinton County into action this Friday night for another road trip to Jenkins, while in possession of a 2-1 winning record.
Hasn’t been since the inaugural season of Varsity Football II for Clinton County in 2006 that the Bulldogs were able to boast of having a winning record at any point in the season.
During that 2006 run, the Dawgs, after a 1-0 start, eventually ran out to a 4-2 record mid-way through the season, before finishing that first year of varsity play at 4-5.
Looking ahead at this Friday night’s contest against the Cavaliers, our Bulldogs will be facing a Jenkins squad coming off of a 34-26 loss to Allen Central. The Cavaliers, a 1A squad, will go into the game with a 1-1 record, having picked up a 36-34 win over Phelps in their season opening contest.
Kickoff this Friday night is set for 7:00 p.m. and those of you headed to Jenkins for the contest – gas it up before you leave – you’ll be just a stone’s throw from the Virginia boundary.
Congrats Dawgs on another big win – and good luck Friday night!
Other fall sports on tap this week
After most of our other teams were on the road this past week, some return home for a few games/matches.
Our Golf Dawgs and Lady Dawgs have a home stretch this week, playing matches at Dale Hollow on Thursday against Pickett County, Monday in a four-way against Cumberland, Taylor and Wayne and against Casey County on Tuesday.
Boys soccer will host Whitley County this Thursday, September 12 in a match set to get underway at 5:30. Girls soccer has an away stretch for several games and isn’t slated to return to the home field for a couple of weeks.

In between all of the above, several away trips are slated.
That’s the upcoming lineup – as best as I can present it considering scheduling changes that come our way often for a host of reasons.
