Austin Stearns took snaps during the second quarter after quarterback Tristan Lehman was sidelined due to a shin injury. Clinton County moved to 0-7 on the year with the 62-0 loss against Glasgow.

Clinton County hosted Glasgow Friday night at Bulldog Field in the third of four straight home games.

The fog was thick Friday night on Bulldog Field as Head Coach Jamie Miller called timeout during the second quarter. Clinton County lost the game 62-0 and will host Middletown Christian, Ohio this Friday night.

Glasgow came in as runners-up in last season’s 2A State Championship game and their depth and knowledge of the game showed Friday night.

Last season, Glasgow finished 14-1, with its only loss coming in the 2A State Championship game to Holy Cross. Glasgow defeated the Bulldogs last season, 55-0.

Clinton County was defeated by the district powerhouse this season, 62-0, bringing the Bulldogs record to 0-7 on the year.

Clinton County has three games remaining on the regular season, with the final home game coming this Friday night against Middletown Christian, Ohio. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.

The Bulldogs will travel for the first time in a month to district rival Green County on October 19, and then to Eminance on October 26.

During the season, Clinton County has scored 58 points during its previous seven games, while allowing 314 total points to be scored.

“Glasgow is an established program. We’ve still not become established yet. I hate to use the term ‘being young,’ but we are playing with a lot of young players,” Head Coach Jamie Miller said. “We have a lot of freshmen and sophomores who get a lot of playing time for us, which goes well for the future.

Friday night’s game will be senior night for the Bulldogs. Four Bulldogs will play the final home game of their high school career Friday night.

It will also be “Cancer Night” for Clinton County. Fans are urged to wear purple to show their support for cancer awareness.
