Rector survives over Corning in a Clay Co classic - 15 to 14

was an emotional rollercoaster of a game for both teams Friday, September 7 in Rector. The atmosphere was incredible for two communities that coming into the game were hungry for a win. Mother Nature even held off from the predicted 80 percent chance of thunderstorms to sit back and watch what the best football game in the state was arguably Friday night. It started off with Corning marching down the field in a 3 yards and a cloud of dust mentality. Corning had an opening drive of 13 plays and unequivocally looked poised to bounce back from the prior week’s tough loss.

The Cats however, coughed up the football deep into Rector territory and the Cougars pounced on it. Rector’s four first half drives opened up on their own 18,18,7 and 19 yard lines. Offensively Corning just couldn’t finish their drives in the first half. It was a fumble on the first drive, some bad snaps on the second drive, a few bobbled snaps on the third drive and a few penalties mixed in that kept the Cats out of the endzone.
