The Colts struggled to contain the multi-faceted Madison offense during the game’s opening half.
It took two plays for the Rams to connect on 55-yard pass for the score, jumping out to a quick 7-0 lead over the host Clear Fork.
Sophomore Thomas Staab returned from last week’s left thigh injury, and was again all over the field for the Colts. His dual-threat ability behind center accounted for the lone Clear Fork score, as he connected with freshman Mitch Dulin on a 28-yard pass for Dulin’s second TD on the year.
The Rams’ duo of junior quarterback Tresten Vail and junior wide receiver Tyrell Ajian accounted for three touchdown passes during the game’s first half.
Madison’s senior running back Kanyon Tackett accounted for the Rams’ fourth touchdown of the half, scoring on a 25-yard dash after the visitors took over on the Clear Fork 35-yard line.
The Colts trail the Rams 26-7 at midway point.
