The Clarkson/Leigh Football Team lost 22-8 at home to Stanton last Friday night.

Eli Hays had 92 yards rushing on 19 carries while Kanyon Held was 1-1 passing for 63 yards.

Carter Hanel hauled in the pass.

Drew Beeson made 12 tackles while Mitchel Beeson and Carter Hanel totaled 9 apiece. Held and Mason Whitmore each had 7.

The Patriots racked up 224 yards of total offense, including 141 rushing.

The defense gave up 348 yards of total offense, 192 coming on the ground.

Clarkson/Leigh (2-2) takes on GACC (2-2) on the road Friday night in action that can be heard on 107.9 the Bull.

The Bluejays won 56-14 at home over Madison last Friday night.

This should be a heck of a game.

I think the Patriots have a good chance to win this one.

GACC won a crazy game last year so it will be interesting to see if Clarkson/Leigh can get payback this year.

The Patriots could all but solidify at least a .500 record for the regular season with a win.

A win would do so much for Clarkson/Leigh I feel.

Anytime you play the Bluejays, especially on their home field, it’s a challenge.

And I think the Patriots should embrace the challenge if they aren’t already, which I’m sure they are.

But I feel Clarkson/Leigh has a good chance at a win in this one based on how and who they’ve played.

The game figures to come down to the wire for sure, and it’s Homecoming at GACC so you know the Bluejays will be tough.

Hays needs to have a big game for the Patriots and Clarkson/Leigh has to play well as a team.

If the Patriots can limit turnovers and penalties, and create some turnovers and catch some breaks and get some things to go and bounce their way then a win could very well be a reality.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on the Bull with pregame starting at 5:30.
