LOCK: Clinton gives Elgin first district loss, 28-20...
By Robert Przybylo
Uh oh, coming off my first LOCK loss of the year, how will the Boneman respond?
After a Week 2 loss to Heritage Hall, was kinda wondering where this Clinton team was going to end up in Class 4A. Was the jump up too much?
But a road victory at Bishop McGuinness shut me up, and Mike Lee’s boys have been rolling since that point bringing a 6-1 record into Friday’s game against Elgin.
Speaking of Elgin, who thought the Owls would be here at this juncture? Thought for sure replacing Kwame Tate was going to be a chore and a half and this team would straddle the .500 mark at best.
Eh, shows what I know.
However, Clinton should assert its dominance in the district with a victory here. The Owls are coming off a big win of their own against the Irish but winning at Clinton is a whole ‘nother story.
Love what Lane Kinney is doing at QB for the Red Tornadoes. Not forcing things, making sound decisions through the air and ground.
Sometimes the best things to do is just keep it simple. Let RBs Saul Pina and Jalee Rainge carry the load. They’re showing that they are more than capable of doing so.
And the wild card up front is James Twins. He can dominate a game and frustrate opponents.
Been a good run for Garrett Lorah and the rest of the Elgin squad, but I see Clinton coming out of this one with a decisive victory.
The pick: Clinton 28, Elgin 20.
Boneman’s LOCK record: 6-1 (Guthrie over Duncan, Heritage Hall over Clinton, Purcell over Lexington, Midwest City over Yukon, Jones over Morris, Norman over Southmoore, Carl Albert over Guthrie).
