Broncos slay the Wolverines

By Sandy Anderberg

The Clarendon Broncos are 2-0 on the year and looking to keep their winning record alive as they take the week to prepare for a road trip to Wheeler next Friday.

Their big win over S-E, gave them the momentum they need to hit the Mustangs head on and continue to prepare for their district schedule, which begins October 13.

The Broncos stepped out in style and racked up 328 total yards in the game compared to only 135 for the Wolverines. Clarendon’s ground game was hard to stop as they ran for 282 yards. All of the Bronco scores came on the ground as Daquawne Oliver earned the first six on a 10-yard run and Cortez scampered 15 yards for the second TD to put the Broncos up by 16.

“We had several guys carry the ball,” head coach Clint Conkin said. “Daquawne Oliver had nine carries for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Ryan McCleskey had 16 carries for 81 yards, and Damarjae Cortez had six carries for 73 yards and one touchdown.”

Others adding to the Bronco offense were Preston Elam with four carries for 30 yards, Collin Butler had one carry for 5 yards, and Antwan Bassett had three carries for 15 yards. Conkin said Noab Elam was five of eight passing for 65 yards, and Preston Elam caught two passes for 23 yards. Bear Smith caught three passes for 42 yards and a two-point conversion, while Cortez returned a kick off 75 yards for a touchdown.

“I thought we played really well the first half,” Conkin said. “We had some mistakes in the third quarter but came back and finished strong. Our defense played great. We held S-E to 21 yards rushing and 103 yards passing. We allowed only six first downs for them.”

The Broncos will travel to Wheeler on Friday, September 15, with the game beginning at 7:00 pm.
