The Victim - Laurens


State Champions of the past provide the inspiration for an Aug. 26 win over cross-county rival Laurens. It's the second consecutive cross-county championship for Clinton - COVID-19 cancelled this game in 2020.

On a night when Clinton remembered football glory from 50 years ago, the 2022 Red Devils took care of business in a rush for a 55-28 cross-county rivalry win over Laurens. Austin Copeland set the stage for Clinton’s Friday win with a long TD run before dust (actually powder thrown into the air – LeBron James-style) from Red Devil students even settled, after Clinton accepted the kickoff.

By the time it was over, Clinton had run the ball for 491 yards, and Laurens had 6 yards on the ground. In fairness, Laurens threw the ball for 274 yards – to Clinton’s 51 yards through the air. But Clinton’s 42 plays went for 542 yards while Laurens’ 53 plays went for 280 yards. Clinton was penalized 9 times for 107 yards.
