The Clear Fork Colts will try to get back on track Friday, as they travel to W.W. Skiles Field in Shelby for the first ever regular season matchup against the Whippets. After beating rival Fredericktown in overtime in their season opener scoring 47 points, the Colts were held to just eight points in week two against Ontario. Most of that their own doing as they turned the ball over five times with two of those five turned into touchdowns. For coach Dave Carroll, he stated the obvious, saying you will not beat anybody turning the ball over as many times as we did, especially against a team with Ontario's talent. The coach also hopes for better execution on offense where the Colts were held to just 222 total yards last week and only nine first downs. Carroll has also warned his squad about 0-2 Shelby, saying they are getting better, saying once the Whippets cut down on penalties and turnovers they will be tough to beat. The Colts will open OCC play next Friday at Arlin Field against the Mansfield Tygers.
