CLEMENTS – After two classic come-from-behind wins in as many weeks, Clements couldn’t find any offensive momentum against a good Wilson defensive unit in the Colts 19-6 loss Friday night.

“It wasn’t pretty tonight,” Clements coach Forrest Williams said. “Our defense kept us in the game, but our offense couldn’t get any momentum.”

Clements took an early lead in the first quarter when running back Jesse Cobb capped off a six play, 67-yard drive with a six-yard touchdown run. Josh Cooper missed the extra point attempt.

Wilson struck back in the second quarter when Ben Richardson hit Matt Deleon on a 53-yard touchdown pass. Brock Peters made the extra point to give the Warriors a 7-6 lead.

Wilson got on the board again in the third quarter by going on a long eight play, 78-yard drive that was capped off by a 23-yard touchdown pass from J.D. Jackson to Peters. Peters’ extra point attempt was no good.

The Warriors got some insurance in the fourth quarter when Peters capped off a three-play, 79-yard drive with a 67-yard touchdown run. Wilson’s two-point conversion attempt failed.

Peters led Wilson offensively with 132-yards rushing on 12 attempts.

Arnold led Clements with 76-yards rushing on 11 attempts. Cobb rushed for 55 yards on nine attempts.

The Colts had 137-yards rushing and 105-yards in the air.

Clements travels to Colbert County next Friday for a Class 3A, Region 8 matchup.
