Late heroics lift Clyde over Anthony Wayne

After Anthony Wayne imposed its will on Clyde in the first half, the Generals offensive attack ground to a halt in the second as the Fliers prevailed on a last-second field goal on Friday night.

Clyde senior Seth Hohman drilled a 32-yard field goal with 10.6 seconds left to give the Fliers a dramatic 30-28 triumph over host AW.

At the half, the Generals had rolled up 323 total yards and scored four touchdowns to take a 28-21 lead. But Clyde then held AW to just 91 yards in the second half and zero points. FULL STORY ■ PHOTO GALLERY ■ VIDEO

Liberty Center celebrates state title anniversary, beats Woodward

Senior running back North West paced the Tigers’ offense, rushing 13 times for 124 yards, including touchdown runs of 4, 13, and 14 yards. Caleb Carpenter ran 21 times for 107 yards, and added a one-yard scoring run. FULL STORY ■ PHOTO GALLERY

Fast start lifts Whitmer to blowout win

For the first time this season, Whitmer played a football game against a team from the same area code.

Based on what the Panthers showed Friday against Perrysburg, there will be few teams in the 419 that can hang with them. Whitmer scored on its first three offensive possessions and added an interception return for a score as it pounded the Yellow Jackets 49-14.

After wins against Detroit Central Catholic and Canton GlenOak, Whitmer’s 2017 home opener was big for the psyche of the Panthers, regardless of the score disparity. FULL STORY ■ VIDEO
