Clarkson-Leigh Runs Over East Butler

September 21, 2020

By: Kanyon Held,  junior at Leigh High School

The Clarkson Leigh Patriot Football Team played their third game on September 11, 2020, at home against the East Butler Tigers. 

To commemorate the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Patriots walked to the field with each player holding an American flag in a show of support for our country. 

After receiving the opening kickoff, the Patriots didn’t take long to score the football. Carter Hanel scored on a 57-yd pass from Lance Paprocki. Paprocki put the two-point conversion in himself. Eli Hays scored next for the Patriots off a 47-yd rushing touchdown. Paprocki put in the two-point conversion after. Hays also scored again off a 62 yd punt return. Again, Paprocki put in the two-point conversion afterwards. Lance Paprocki also had a 1 yd rushing touchdown that Hays put the two-point conversion in afterwards. Hays also had one more 52 yd rushing touchdown in the first quarter. The Patriots failed to put the two-point conversion in afterwards. 

Clarkson-Leigh scored two more rushing touchdowns in the second quarter from Hays and Kyle Kasik.  Carter Hanel caught a pass from Lance Paprocki for one of the two-point conversions but the Patriots failed on the other. Going into halftime the score was 52-0 Clarkson-Leigh. 

In the third quarter, East Butler was able to reach the endzone. Trevin Brecka scored a 5 yd rushing touchdown and put the two-point conversion in himself. In the fourth quarter the Patriots scored one more touchdown. Kanyon Held scored a 2-yd rushing touchdown, but the Patriots failed to put the two-point conversion in. 

When asked about the game, Assistant Coach Matt Murren said, "The boys came out with intensity and a purpose to start the game which got us off to a fast start. That first quarter was one of our best of the year in terms of executing on both sides of the ball."

Senior Lance Paprocki said, “The varsity showed up and took care of business so the JV could get some playing time.”

This win brings the Patriot record to 2-1 on the year.
