Clarion Golden Eagles stopped by the Vulcans

This past weekend, the Clarion University Golden Eagles football team faced its visitors, the California University Vulcans.

The Vulcans got the best of the Golden Eagles as the game ended with the score of 48-20.

This would give Clarion a losing streak of three losses.

The first quarter started, and the Vulcans had scored the first touchdown.

Shortly after, Clarion scored and tied the game at 7-7.

The touchdown was performed by Matt Lehman after he received a 10-yard pass from Jeff Clemens.

Those were the only points scored in the first quarter, and the second quarter began with both teams still tied.

The second quarter is where most of the action took place.

The Vulcans scored at 9:49 of the second quarter and at 3:18, setting the score to 21-7.

About a minute later, Clarion would advance and score when Lehman would yet again catch a 32-yard pass from Clemens.

However, during the last seven seconds of the quarter, the Vulcans would score another touchdown.

That was a wrap for the first half of the game, with the Golden Eagles having to play catch-up.

Clarion freshman Greg Leonard gave Lehman a break and scored the first touchdown of his career for after receiving a 3-yard pass from Clemens.

The third quarter would end with the score being 31-20.

It was the fourth and final quarter.

Clarion would need to score at least two more touchdowns to win the game, which is easier said than done.

Morale was low, and unfortunately, Clarion was unable to do so as the Vulcans would score two more touchdowns and a field goal.

The final score was set to 48-20, and CalU would return home with its sixth straight victory.

On the bright side, Lehman would be tied in second place with Alvin Slaughter on the career receiving touchdowns list at Clarion University.

Layne Skundrich performed 11 tackles, being the most amount of tackles during the game.

Hopefully things will turn out better as the Clarion Golden Eagles will be back in action as they travel to face the Indiana University Crimson Hawks this Saturday at 1 p.m.
