  • For the third straight year, the Macon Tigers football team had to make the long trip to Kahoka to take on the Clark County Indians.
    Macon has dominated the Indians in the past four meetings, but Clark returns a number of formidable weapons for 2012.
    Clark County would win the coin toss, but elected to defer, giving Macon the opening kick.
    The Tigers would eat up four minutes in the first quarter, and drive down the field for a touchdown on a 1-yard plunge by QB Craig Smith. The point after by Andre Reynolds gave Macon a 7-0 lead.
    On Clark County's first play from scrimmage, QB Austin Egley would throw short to wide-receiver Jacob Trump, who broke tackles and ran 65 yards for the touchdown. The extra-point was no good, so Macon held a 7-6 lead following the first quarter.
    The Indians would break the game open in the 2nd quarter.
    Clark County was driving down the field to end the first quarter, and just 28 seconds into the second, running back Bryce Boudreau would race to paydirt from six yards out. The 2-pointer was scored by wide-out Jayvin Ray, and Clark held a 14-7 lead.
    After forcing a three-and-out from Macon, the Indians struck again. At the 6:24 mark, wide-out Logan Prewitt would break loose and run 44 yards for the score. The PAT again was no good, giving Clark County a 20-7 lead.
    Right before halftime, the Indians drove down again and scored on a four-yard run by Egley. Ray scored the 2-pointer to give Clark a 28-7 lead at halftime.
    Macon would snuff out another Clark County drive deep in Tiger territory, as Tyrone Walker recovered a fumble inside the Macon 10.
    With 20 seconds left in the third, the Tigers would strike on a two-yard dive by running back Chris Little. Reynolds' PAT got Macon within 28-14 after the third quarter.
    The Indians had the answer though. Just 55 seconds into the fourth, Boudreau would score from two-yards out. The PAT was missed again, putting Clark ahead 34-14.
    With 7:55 left in the game, Macon would score as QB Smith connected with tight-end Conner Owens on a 10-yard TD pass. Reynolds hit the PAT to make the score 34-21.
    Clark County would ice the game with 4:24 to go, as Boudreau cashed in his third TD of the night, this time a three-yard run. Egley rushed in the 2-pointer to make the final score 42-21, Clark County with the win.
    The Tigers, now 2-2 overall (2-2 CCC) will play their second home game Friday vs. Highland.
