Rams take down Knights
Placeholder Image
It was a dreary night for Louis Clyburn and North Central. And playing most of a game in a driving rain only served to make matters worse.On an evening in which Chesterfield played recorded music over the loudspeakers throughout the course of the game, including during plays, the host Rams were the ones who left The Battle Grounds humming a winning tune as they pinned a 62-20 loss on North Central.The setback snapped the Knights’ three-game win streak and evened their Region 4-AA mark at 1-1. Chesterfield improved to 4-3 overall in winning for the first time in three 4-AA outings in a rematch of last year’s first round state playoff game which the Rams won, 49-18.Unlike last year’s season finale for NC, this latest edition of the series between the two rivals hardly ended in the usual exchange of pleasantries.With the Rams carrying a 42-14 third quarter lead which stood at 42-20 heading into the fourth quarter, Clyburn took out his starters and gave his reserves needed playing time.
