Boys Varsity Football · Varsity Football: Clippers Win 5th Straight, Roll over Oberlin 65-20


OBERLIN — The Clearview Clippers scored in almost every way possible on Friday night, scoring 65 first half points in a 65-20 rout of Oberlin in week 6 action.

The Clippers forced a turnover on Oberlin’s opening possession as David Rentfle recovered a fumble and returned it 25 yards for a touchdown.  Drew Engle scored on a 44 yard touchdown run to extend the Clearview lead to 14-0.

Back came Oberlin, as Hairston hit Arnold for a 9 yard touchdown pass that closed Oberlin to within 14-6 after a quarter.

Then the Clippers took over.

The second quarter featured all kinds of scoring for the Clippers.  First, Chase Christensen hit David Rentfle for a 40 yard touchdown pass.  Then, the Clipper defense forced a safety.  On the ensuing free kick, Fabion Kirkwood’s 80 yard return set up Clearview inside the 5 and Drew Engle capitalized on a 3 yard touchdown run.  Jordan Reed had an interception on the next Phoenix drive, which set up David Rentfle for a 4 yard touchdown run.  After a Phoenix turnover on downs, Drew Engle ran for a 69 yard touchdown.  After a Phoenix fumble, Robert Davis hit Joseph Norris for a 35 yard touchdown pass.  After Hairston hit Hopkins for a 68 yard touchdown pass for the Phoenix, Fabion Kirkwood ran the kickoff back for a touchdown.  Then, David Rentfle had a 56 yard interception return for a touchdown.

When the dust settled in the first half, Clearview had a 65-14 lead and cruised from there.  Reserves and Junior Varsity players played most of the second half with the running clock in effect.

Hodge added a 42 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that gave Oberlin the only scoring in the second half.

David Rentfle finished the night with four touchdowns in four different ways – a fumble return for a touchdown, a receiving touchdown, a rushing touchdown and an interception return for a touchdown.  Drew Engle added 3 touchdowns of his own on runs of 44, 3 and 69.

Clearview improves to 5-1 overall and will now prepare for their homecoming showdown with Columbia.  Oberlin falls to 2-4 overall and will travel to Fairview next week.
