Clearview stuns Columbia, 26-21, on last-second touchdown

COLUMBIA STATION, OHIO– In a game that featured a little bit of everything, the Clearview Clippers managed to come out victorious on the road over the Colombia Raiders.

After Julian Colbert blocked a Columbia punt late in the fourth quarter, Clippers’ quarterback Anthony Terry found receiver Jordan Reed for a 34-yard touchdown to complete the comeback. The win keeps Clearview undefeated in the conference and 6-1 overall. The loss drops the Raiders to 4-3 overall, 1-1 in the conference.

Clearview wasted no time putting points on the board, scoring on a 49-yard pass on their second possession of the game. Terry connected with Gee Newton on a 76-yard touchdown pass on the next possession, putting the Clippers up 14-0.

Columbia kept within striking distance though. Raiders’ signal caller Jared Bycznski threw an eight-yard touchdown to Adam Ross, finishing off an impressive drive.

Columbia started off the second half hot, scoring a touchdown on only five plays, the last of which a nine-yard run by Adam Alten. The Raiders tied the game at 14-14 after a successful two-point conversion.

Columbia picked off Terry, a rare mistake from him on the day, and promptly punched it into the end zone on a 32-yard run from Cole Schwartz. The two-point conversion was good once again, giving the Raiders a 21-14 going into the fourth quarter.

The Clippers got the ball back late in the quarter and initiated a long scoring drive. Terry completed passes of 24 and 11 yards to Kash Warren en route to a three-yard touchdown plunge by Drew Engle.

Clearview missed a two-point conversion and trailed 21-20. A bad possession by Columbia mired by two chop block penalties led to a forced punt, which was promptly blocked. Clearview recovered and made the Raiders pay. Terry found his receiver, Jordan Reed, in the left corner of the end zone for the eventual game-winning score.

Clearview will head back home and play the struggling Fairview Warriors next Friday. Columbia will play their final home game of the season next week against the Brooklyn Hurricanes.
