(Staff Photo) Sticking to the classic pigskin tactic of pounding their opponents on the ground with rushing yards, first-year head coach John Butler and his Cloverdale Clovers punched their ticket into round two of the Class 1A Sectional 38 with a 53-0 win Friday at home against Riverton Parke.

The Clover offense saw just seven passing attempts all night from junior quarterback Justin Wilson, who completed three for 25 yards. However, a total of 388 rushing yards, including 223 from senior running back Jordan Brinkman helped Cloverdale capture its third win of the season.

“Our game plan worked exactly like we thought it would. We were playing a very inexperienced and young team, they only had one or two seniors on their roster. We went into it wanting to run the football and throw it when we had to on third downs. That’s how it ended up, we had 61 total plays, 54 runs and seven passes,” coach Butler said. “It was just one of those situations where we played really well against a young team. Our kids played at a high tempo, had fun and it went real well for them.”

The Clovers were also able to capitalize on the visiting Panthers’ miscues, re- their children: Mytron, Don, Dale and Anita.
