Dawgs fall to Edmonson County

The Clinton County Bulldogs took Bulldog Field Friday night to host district rival Edmonson County.

The Dawgs didn’t leave the field with a win, 13-0, but did move into the number three seed in district play which will put Clinton County in the post season for the first time in several years.

With the loss to Edmonson County, Clinton County will play Monroe County at Monroe County on Friday November 8.

“We feel as good as you can feel about a loss,” Head Coach Rocky Tallent said. “Edmonson has a pretty high powered offense. They put 33 points on Monroe and 39 on Green and 20 on Metcalfe. We actually held them in check defensively.”

Tallent said the weather played a huge factor in Friday night’s game.

“The elements killed us. Most everyone knows we are a throwing football team. It’s hard to throw when it’s raining and muddy and the wind is blowing,” Tallent said.

Clinton County went into the locker room at halftime down 7-0.

“They didn’t score at all until like 40 seconds to go in the half,” Tallent said. “We were right there. They put together a drive in the second half and went up 13-0. We never could get anything really going.”

Chase Stines had a rather slow night offensively with 11 for 23 for 79 yards and threw an interception. Rushing, Stines had 17 carries for 42 yards. Camerick Wright had five carries for 32 yards. Bryson Cross had two catches for 28 yards and Parker Tallent three catches for 26 yards.

Defensively, John Stearns had 10 tackles while Parker and Stines had seven tackles each. Matthew Roberts and Wright had six tackles each.

Clinton County will host its final home game of the season this Friday, November 1, against Jackson County at Bulldog Field with kick off starting at 7 p.m.

Camerick Wright chased down an Edmonson County player to force a fumble in the first half Friday night. Clinton County recovered the ball, but couldn’t convert the turnover into points on the board. The Dawgs lost the game, 13-0.
