(Staff Photo) Both teams were looking for their first win of the sea­son last Friday night at Clo­verdale High School, but in the end it would be the vis­iting South Vermillion Wild­cats who came away with the ‘W’ to spoil Homecoming Night for the Clovers.

Although the Clovers tallied their largest total of offensive yardage (227) of the season, they found them­selves trailing 22-0 after the first quarter and managed to score just once in the 36-6 defeat.

The second quarter featured the Clovers’ lone touchdown when freshman quarterback Parker Watts connected with sophomore wide receiver Nick Winders, who dove into the end zone for the score. An attempted run for a two-point conver­sion failed with just more than eight minutes remain­ing before intermission.
