Indians Defeat East Clinton

.

Hillsboro, after a disheartening loss at home last week to Goshen, rebounded with a road win over the East Clinton Astros by a 21-7 count.

.

The Indians had scored only 23 total points through their first two games - however, they began the game with an 80 yard return of the opening kick by Mark Gallimore. East Clinton, with the aid of a crucial penalty, went ahead with a touchdown of their own. And, with the extra point, took a one point lead after the first quarter.

.

After that, Hillsboro's staunch defense shut out the Astros for the rest of the game. A key interception by defensive lineman Draven Stodgel led to another Gallimore touchdown run and gave the Indians the lead for good at 13-7 at the intermission.

.

In the third and fourth quarters the slashing runs of Gallimore began to wear down the Astros and the Indians tacked on an insurance touchdown run by fullback Silas Simmons to seal win number two for 2019.

.

Hillsboro, in the midst of three consecutive road games, will travel next Friday to Williamsburg to take on the Wildcats.
