The McClain Tiger football team (1-4, 2-0) hosted South Central Ohio League powerhouse Clinton-Massie (4-1, 2-0) onto their field Friday night and the Falcons showed the Tigers just why they are ranked again once this year by scoring the first four times they touched the ball and cruising to a 56-0 victory.

It took only a minute and four seconds for the Massie team to score their first touchdown and the next three times they got the ball, the put points on the board.

The win makes the 54th straight win for the Falcons in SCOL play and their 37th shutout in 144 league games.

““We got back to old-school Clinton-Massie football, running the option well. We came in trying to establish the fullback. We had Brad (Hunt) back. When you have a fullback-based offense and you get your fullback back, and you have a quarterback like Devon (O’Bryon) who is so explosive, that’s a tremendous 1-2 punch,” CM head coach Dan McSurley said. “Christian Poynter keeps on having great vision and you have that hammer back with J.T. (Wolf). That’s a deadly combination.

““It was a good game. We’ll take it. Last time we step on this field, it feels very satisfying to come out with a shutout. I’m very happy for the defense.”

The Tigers will be on the road next week as they travel to Miami Trace for another league matchup.
