Clyde at Columbian football
August 26, 2011 - Zach Baker
About 20 minutes from kickoff, and I'm suspecting the first quarter may be difficult -- for the media. The sun is coming right into the booth. TC clad in gold helmets, navy home uniforms, gold pants. Clyde has yellow helmets, white tops, yellow pants. Clyde brought a very nice contingent with them.
Ben Davis gets his first start at QB for the Tornadoes. Clyde returns its QB in Ryan Meyer.
After one quarter, no score at the Frost. Columbian has a second and 14 at the Clyde 35, and the Tornadoes had a drive extended by a pass interference on a third and long.
TC's Jack Jacoby lost a fumble on the last drive.
Jacoby runs for 5-yard TD, adds point after, 7-0 TC, 9:21 left in second quarter.
Boyer catches 37 yard TD pass from Davis, 13-0 TC, 5 minutes left.
After Boyer caught an 8-yard TD pass to close the half, TC runs over Clyde on the first drive after halftime. This is getting ugly. Ryan Lynch scores on a 20-yard run. 26-0 TC, 9:42 left in third.
Columbian has sacked Boyer five times, and TC leads, 26-0 after three quarters.
Clyde has rallied, making it 26-13 with 3:50 left. Brad Smith's running really has sparked the Fliers, but time is running out.
