CLEARFIELD – It was a tough night on the gridiron for the Bellefonte football team Friday as they traveled to a fired up Clearfield team that fell last week to Tyrone.

Depleted by injuries the Red Raiders fought valiantly but fell the the Bison 55-16.

Despite falling behind, the Bellefonte offense played with pride and not only spoiled the shut out but scored twice before the contest came to an end.

Coming in late in the contest, Red Raider quarterback Liam Halterman came out firing, picking up 110-yards passing going 6-8-110 yards. He hit his favorite receiver Mikah Delos Reyes for 84 of those yards and a touchdown.

In the fourth, Halterman found Reyes on a 30-yard TD reception to end the shut out. They were successful on the 2-point conversion.

However, the Bison started out with the hot hand.

After forcing the Bison to punt for the first time, Halterman again drove his team downfield and called his own number from 11-yards out with 25 seconds left, making it a 55-14 contest. With the second successful 2-point conversion rounding out the scoring.

Clearfield went right to work on its first possession of the night. The drive would be 6-play drive culminating in a Carter Chamberlain 1-yard run. With the Evan Davis kick, the Bison led 7-0 with 7:58 left in the opening quarter.

On Bellefonte’s second possession, the Bison defense held once again, giving the ball to its potent running game.

Starting on their own 28, Clearfield worked its way downfield once again, culminating on a Brady Collins 6-yard run. The kick failed, putting the home team up by 13 with 48.0 seconds left in the quarter.

The Clearfield defense proved to be very stubborn early on as they were able to once again force another Red Raider 3-and-out, putting the ball once again in the offenses grips.

Again, the Bison methodically drove the ball downfield as their running game continued to churn positive runs.

With 8:22 left in the half, Chamberlain got the call again as he busted through the middle for a 4-yard TD run. With completing the 2-point conversion, Clearfield upped its lead to 21-0.

But they weren’t done yet, after Bellefonte’s fake punt was unsuccessful, Clearfield quarterback Will Domico would go to the air and hit a 24-yard TD pass to Collins, upping it to a 28-0 mark at 6:15 left in the intermission.

The Clearfield defense forced a fumble the Red Raiders’ next drive, giving the ball to its offense once again, this time at the Bellefonte 20.

Running back Carter Freeland took it from there as he blazed his way to a 20-yard TD run at 5:55.

Clearfield added one more score before the half when Jacob Samsel broke free on a 67-yard scamper, helping his team go into the locker room leading, 42-0.

Clearfield finished the first half with 293 yards of total offense.

They would add two third quarter touchdowns to pad their lead.
