To this point in the season at 2-4 overall and 0-3 in the OCC, the season has not gone as well as expected for the Clear Fork Colts, but nobody is throwing in the towell.  There are still four games left to be played on the schedule with Madison up next.  The Colts trailed 27-24 at the half to Wooster last week, then were outscored 27-0 in the final two periods falling 54-24.  Despite their third straight loss, coach Dave Carroll remains positive saying if the team can right the ship there is still plenty to play for if the team can win their final four games.

To get back on track this week, Clear Fork will have to slow down Madison running back Kale Huss and quarterback Alex Smith.  Heading into last week, Huss had run for 922 yards, Smith 436.  But both were held in check last Friday for a combined 88 yards on the ground.  It was the first time Huss had been held under 100 yards this season.  But what has impressed coach Carroll is the play of Madison's offensive line saying they come off the ball fast and hard and for the Colts to win Friday they must be physical up front.

Even though the Colts fell last week, they put up nearly 300 yards of offense getting 121 yards on the ground and 172 through the air.  Quarterback Ryan South rushed for 99 yards and threw for the other 172 on 17 of 30 passing with one touchdown pass to Luke Golden of 12 yards.   The Colts will be looking to turn the tables at Madison on Friday night after the Rams came from 14 down to beat the Clear Fork last season in Bellville on homecoming 21-14.
