ADAMS TOWNSHIP — In a battle of Southern Buckeye Conference division champions, Clinton-Massie capitalized on two Bethel-Tate interceptions, a fumble and a bad punt snap into the end zone to score the first 42 points and coast to a 56-20 Region 16 quarterfinal victory Saturday at Frank Irelan Field.

The Falcons (8-0) uncustomarily went three-and-out on their first drive, but cashed in Carson Vanhoose and Kody Zantene interceptions for 13 points in a span of 63 seconds. Colton Trampler, who rumbled for 196 yards and two scores on 33 rushes, notched the first score on a 8-yard run. Zantene sneaked in from the 1 after a returning his interception 29 yards to that spot.

After a Bethel-Tate three-and-out, Massie scored 88 seconds later on a 36-yard quarterback keeper by Zantene.

Zantene had another QB sneak two minutes later, following a Tiger fumble, to put Massie up 27-0 after a quarter.

Massie forced another BT three-and-out and then scored on the second play of the second quarter when Zantene found Dawson Conley in the end zone for his third touchdown catch of the season.

Sixty-nine seconds and another Bethel-Tate three-and-out later, Massie got a safety when a punt snap sailed into the end zone.

Zantene’s fourth touchdown of the game, a 24-yard run, was the end of Massie’s first-half scoring onslaught.

The Tigers (7-2) finally got on the board late in the first half with the first of three touchdown passes by backup signal-caller Cameron Snider. He tacked on another one on the first play of the second half. The third one came at the end of the third quarter.

Massie advances to a Region 16 semifinal to face fourth-seeded Waverly (8-0) at 7 p.m. on Halloween at Frank Irelan Field. In the other semifinal, third-seeded Wyoming will face seventh-seeded Germantown Valley View, which upset second-seed Indian Hill.
