COLDWATER – With a lengthy lightning delay, Clinton-Massie’s game Friday with Coldwater didn’t finish until the wee hours of Saturday morning.
Coldwater led Clinton-Massie 21-14 when the game was stopped. After more than an hour delay, the game resumed at approximately 11:45 p.m.
Clinton-Massie put together a solid opening drive but fumble deep in Coldwater territory. The Cavaliers took advantage, putting together a 90-yard drive to take a 7-0 lead on a pass from Jake Hemmelgarn to Will Broering from 35 yards out.
Massie’s offense bogged down until midway through the second quarter. Corey Stulz scampered 35 yards for paydirt and Grant Avey’s extra point tied the game at 7-7.
The Cavaliers answered quickly with Hemmelgarn again throwing a touchdown pass, this one from 23 yards out to Cole Frilling.
In the third, Coldwater took a 21-7 lead with Mitch Niekamp scored from 15 yards out at the 9:56 mark.
After an exchange of punts, Massie pulled closer with a long drive capped by Brendan Lamb’s 10 yard burst at the 2:15 mark of the third, 21-14.
After the delay, the Cavaliers went up 24-14 with a field goal in the fourth but Massie followed in short order with a touchdown to make it 24-21.
The turnstile scoring continued as the Cavs made it 31-21 with 4:05 to go in the fourth on a pass in the middle of the Massie defense.
With time winding down, the Falcons went on the attack. Massie converted a fourth and eight with a pass just inside Cavaliers territory with just over 2:00 to play in the fourth.
The result was another Massie touchdown, this one coming with 59 seconds remaining in the fourth, 31-28.
Coldwater recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock to secure the win.
