Clear Fork dropped its second straight road game tonight, falling to Lexington by a count of 27-7.

The undefeated Minutemen were led by senior quarterback Joey Vore who accounted for all but six of the teams total points, as he rushed for two touchdowns, connected on two field goals and nailed two extra point attempts, as the Lexington signal caller takled the team’s kicking duties.

“We just got out physicalled again tonight,” said Clear Fork head coach Dave Carroll. “It’s a decision to play physical fooball and it’s something that we need to do. It’s been the way Clear Fork football has been played since it’s inception and we have to get back to that.”

The Colts got off to a slow start against the Minutemen, fumbling on their first possession of the game to give Lexington prime field position. Clear Fork’s Ohio Cardinal Conference rivals capitalized scoring on a 25-yard run from senior Vore.

Following the Lexington score, the Colts broke in their offense with a new look, as Thomas Staab took over the Colts quarterback spot. Staab quickly completed a 23-yard pass to sophomore wide-out Jacob Lowe putting the Colts into Lexington territory.

“We wanted to get the ball in Thomas’ hands every play,” said Carroll. “He does everything we try to stress throughout the week in the classrooom on the baseball field wherever he is he’s giving it his all.”

After a failed fourth-down conversion attempt, Lexington took the ball over on downs and Minutemen running back Hunter Biddle cracked off a 50-yard run taking the ball into Colt territory.

Following a Clear Fork punt, Vore again crossed the goal-line for Lexington, pulling the Minutemen ahead 14-0.

In the second half, it was once again Lexington’s rushing attack that proved to be too much for the Colts as junior running back Hunter Biddle added to the Minutemen lead scrambling across the goal line on a five yard run.

“I give all the credit to Lexington and their coaching staff,” said Carroll.”They’re playing football the way it’s supposed to be played. They play a physical game and they’re a year ahead of us right now. They’re faster, stonger and play more agressive football.”

Clear Fork moves to 2-3 on the year and will look to get back on track at home against Wooster next week.
