Clay County 43 Middlesboro 42


Recommended Posts

Clay let turnovers and penalties keep them in a hole for most of the game. Clay was down 28-7 at the half and received the kickoff to begin the third only to fumble deep on their first couple of plays. Middlesboro quickly scores again to go up 35-7. Clay comes back to tie it at 35 after Tanner Gilbert rallied the defense to hold the Jackets at bay while CJ Miller, John Wilson, Noah Reid and the offense decided they didn't want to lose this game. After a big play (screen pass) the Jackets score yet again to go up 42-35 with little time left (can't remember the time). Clay gets it back but has to punt with around 4 minutes to go. Clay's defense holds and they get the ball back with somewhere around 2 minutes to go. With third or fourth and long to go and about 40 seconds left, Wilson hooks up with Noah Reid for about a 65 yard touchdown 42-41. Clay goes for two...Wilson rolls out and connects with JV Hooker to take the lead 43-42. The jackets have a few tries but comes up short in one of the biggest comebacks and most exiting games I have ever witnessed. A one word description of the game would simply be...WOW!


The Appalachian Bowl was THE best bowl in the state without a doubt. Johnson Central and Knox Central went to overtime in the first game with JC winning after Knox failed on their two point conversion in OT.
