Playing Whiteville at home, Clinton JV would end the night with a big score of 43-0, shutting out the Wolfpack in the first half of the ballgame.

RayQuan Faison then gained a 2 point conversion, making the score 8-0. Minutes later, Clinton scored another TD with 5:08 left in the first quarter. Raheem Skinner then granted Clinton a 2 point conversion. The score was now 16-0.
With Whiteville testing new plays in hope of scoring a touchdown, Clinton’s defense stayed strong. Jaquan McClean then scored a third touchdown for the Dark Horses, moving the score to 22-0. RayQuan Faison once again backed his team up and scored another 2 point conversion.
With just 2 seconds left in the first quarter, Clinton’s Emari Oates #2 would raise the score to 31, leaving Whiteville behind at 0.
