The Victim - Chester


It is the unfinished business. leave no doubt game. Clinton clinches the Region 4 title, winning at Chester Oct. 21, but the Red Devils still have the playoffs ahead of them, as the remarkable 2022 season progresses forward.

They listened to their coaches when they said, “Leave no doubt.”

At the final horn, there was no doubt who the better team was Friday night in Clinton’s 48-20 beatdown of Chester. Clinton Football Head Coach Corey Fountain had told his players not to leave the game in the hands of the officials or with anything other than their own best effort. And, they didn’t.

Jishun Copeland ran in inspired fashion in the first half to gain 139 yards. Clinton’s Bryson James scored the Red Devils first touchdown on their first drive on a night when 4 different running backs would score for Clinton. The defense turned in a big stop in the second half on 4th and 10 after Chester was aided by personal foul and pass interference flags. The Cyclones scored for the last time with 1:33 left in the game, and Clinton didn’t even feel the need to retaliate – by then, Jayden Robinson’s and Trey Cook’s running had upped Clinton’s tally to 48, just below their season average for points.
