BELLVILLE — Clear Fork’s opponent in Week 1 of the high school football playoffs is certainly battle-tested, having met up with three playoff teams already this season.
The 7-3 Bryan Golden Bears enter Saturday’s game at the Colt Corral with a 7-3 mark, but shouldn’t be taken lightly, having already faced 2018 playoff teams Patrick Henry, Liberty Center and Van Wert.
The undefeated Colts are 10-0 and won the Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference championship for the second-straight year, in their second year in the MOAC. It also is Clear Fork’s second-straight playoff appearance and second straight 10-0 regular season mark.
