SPRING MILLS – The Clearfield Bison junior varsity football team picked up their first win of the season on Monday night when they defeated Penns Valley 32-12.
John Rowles got the scoring started for the Bison on a 9-yard touchdown run with Xavier Curry running in the 2-point conversion for an 8-0 lead. Rowles was the workhorse for the Bison, finishing the game with 143 yards on 23 carries.
Curry added a “scoop and score” defensive TD in the second quarter to up the Bison lead to 14-0.
The visiting Bison made it 20-0 before the half when Curry scored for the second time via an 18-yard pass from Karsen Lazauskas.
A long 63-yard TD run finally got the Rams on the scoreboard, but Lazauskas countered with a short run for a score early in the fourth quarter to put the margin back to 20 points at 26-6.
The final Bison score was also of the defensive variety as Cooper Broad had a 32-yard “pick six”.
The Bison (1-3) will host Huntingdon on Monday October 3 in their next game.
