It stayed at 8 until the half.
The middle Dark Horses came back from the break fired up. Rayheem Skinner got the score from 10 yards out, but the 2-point conversion failed. Clinton was up 14-8.
Five minutes later Union went in the air, a pass that was intercepted by Sampson’s J. Robinson, who set up the play three minutes later for Skinner who took it in from 4 yards out for the TD. Skinner got the 2-point conversion and Clinton was up 22-8.
Union never scored again.
No results were called in by press time from Union.
