Closing out their season, the JV boys fell at home to Alden-Conger/Glenville-Emmons 24-6 on Monday.
The Knights scored twice in the first quarter with the second touchdown on a 45-yard run. Early in quarter two, they scored on a 30-yard run.
Down 18 to none, Cleveland’s only touchdown came with 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard Carson Lyons signature toss to Bode Bartell on the slant route. That play was setup when Caleb Connor pulled down a Lyons pitch for a 39-yard catch and run. Alden stopped the points-after run.
The Knights recovered a fumble at midfield after that and then took a reverse 50 yards to the end zone for their final points. The Clippers stopped the ensuing PAT run.
The JV was coached this fall by the entire varsity staff: Erik Hermanson, Kyle Atherton, Matt Miller, Brady Hahn and Larry Walechka.
