After a 40-8 win over the Shelby Whippets last Friday, the Clear Fork Colts stand at 2-1 on the season and will open OCC play on Friday at preseason favorite, 3-0 Mansfield Senior. For coach Dave Carroll and the Colts it's a week where you can't make mistakes by turning the ball over or missing assignments. On defense, you also have to tackle well in the open field. The Tygers have the players with the ability to make you miss, it just can't happen very often. The Colts offense will be led by one of the area's leading passers in Kadin Chrastina who is 34 of 55 for 414 yards and two touchdowns. Chrastina has also rushed for 274 yards on 45 carries scoring four times. One of his favorite targets has been Silas Finley with 18 receptions for 280 yards with two TD's. Clear Fork's defense also has three of the area's leading tacklers in Phillip Wilson with 40, Jordan Ridenour with 36 and David Bushong with 29. The Colts Ridge Winand is also one of seven area players with two interceptions after three weeks. The Colts will need to be strong on defense as they will be going up against the area's leading passer in Mansfield Senior's Jalen Reese who has 873 yards through the air and ten touchdown passes with Chek Washington being one of his favorite targets with 18 catches for 249 yards and two scores. Over the last nine years against the Tygers, the Colts have won seven times against Senior High. Last season's 35-15 win by Mansfield in Bellville broke a seven year losing streak to the Colts.
