NEW RICHMOND – He’s baaaaaaaaaack. Clinton-Massie running back Brendan Lamb, out the last three weeks, came back like a lion at New Richmond, scoring all three Falcon touchdowns in a 21-7 Southern Buckeye Conference American Division victory.

With the win, Massie (8-1, 4-0) is assured of a tie for the conference title.

“We thought kind of all year this would be one of our harder games for sure,” said Scott Rolf, the CM assistant coach standing in for injured Dan McSurley. “We’ve been telling the kids all week they can’t be complacent. These guys are having senior night. They’re well coached. They’ve bought into their program. We knew it’d be a challenge.”

New Richmond (6-3, 2-2) scored on its first drive of the second half, the first touchdown CM gave up in nearly 15 quarters, to pull within 14-7 of the Falcons. The last team to score on the Falcons was Bishop Hartley in Week 5.

However, Massie answered 80 seconds later with Lamb’s third touchdown of the night.

“We felt he could get about 40-, 50-percent of the snaps and just see how the game went. It was important for him to start getting in shape. He’s not totally 100 percent. He’s still healing a little bit,” Rolf said about the plan to ease Lamb back into the lineup. “But I thought he looked pretty good. Carrying the football and getting back in the groove, that’s what this game was for.”

In addition to the three scores, Lamb finished with 220 yards on 23 carries.

Massie had two other chances to score but fumbled twice in the red zone.

New Richmond quarterback Josh Anderson threw interceptions on the Lions’ last three drives of the first half, including Griffin Laake’s pick of Anderson’s Hail Mary at the 1 to end the half.
