The team’s eight touchdowns were spread between five Clovers en route to a 52-0 shutout win.

Four of the Clovers’ scores came by way of senior wide receiver Wade Warren, who reeled in a pair of receptions for scores, one from each quarterback – senior Mark Osmialowski and freshman Duke Duff. Warren also found the end zone on a short yardage run and a 50-yard interception return. Warren led all receivers with four catches for 40 yards.

Senior tailback Andrew Howard found the end zone twice during his 104-yard rushing performance on 13 carries. Fellow senior running back Taylor Mescall found pay dirt as well late in the third quarter, rushing three times for 25 yards. Junior fullback Ethan Boyd also earned a score off of a 47-yard run for the final Cloverdale touchdown of the night. Boyd ended the night with 53 yards on three carries.
