Cashing in against Clinton

This is the game Shelbyville has been waiting for, to put everything together.

The Shelbyville varsity has had to grow up quick and in a hurry, under fire, learning on the fly. Now they are ready to cash all that in against Clinton on Friday.

The Ram offense has weathered the storm and emerged last week with 27 points against St. Teresa, their highest out-put of the season. The rushing game is gradually seeing more yardage and the passing game is carrying the offense.

After a lack of discipline in their penalty-filled win over Warrensburg, the Rams have cleaned things up. Center to quarterback exchanges have gotten better.

The Ram defense has gotten better, despite giving up too many big plays again last week. That’s something that Clinton hangs their hat on.

Clinton had a 51 yard run for a TD for their only score against Tuscola in a 41-7 loss. Clinton had a three scores against Argenta in a 56-19 loss. The first was a 60 yard run. The other two were from defense: a punt block return and a 35 yard pass interception.

Against Monticello last week, the Sages pulled in their horns leading 54-0 in the 4th period. Clinton got a 15 run TD run and a 29 yard passing TD.

A quick look at the Shelbyville v. Clinton match-up may look like a draw. They both beat Warrensburg for their only win of the season. Clinton won, 26-12 and Shelbyville won, 20-12. If Shelbyville could have exercised a little discipline,the final TD would have counted and they would have won, 26-12.

However, Shelbyville has allowed 53 fewer points than Clinton. Shelbyville has scored 16 more points than Clinton. Clinton has been out-scored by an average of 30 points per game. Shelbyville has been out-scored by an average of 16 points per game.

If Shelbyville can stay focused, despite all the homecoming distractions, they should win. If Shelbyville can can continue to show the improvement they have and not have the wheels come off, they should win.

Shelbyville could win by two touchdowns, 27-13.
