CLARKSVILLE — The Panthers hosted the Subiaco Academy Trojans at Metheny Field on Friday night and watched a 28-point halftime lead disappear as Subiaco scored 35 second-half points, but Clarksville held on for a 49-42 4A-4 Conference victory.
After trading punts, Panther quarterback Trey Schucker connected with Brody McKinney to put Clarksville (4-3, 2-2) at the Trojan 10. Schucker hit Ryan Rogers on a fade in the left corner of the end zone with 1:45 left in the first quarter. Victor Garcia’s point-after kick was blocked to leave the score 6-0.
McKinney stopped the ensuing Subiaco (3-4, 1-3) drive when he intercepted Marquis Walter at the Panther 24, and returned it to the Subiaco 37. Schucker hit Jordan Bateman one play later on a pass down the middle with 32 seconds left in the first quarter. The 2-point conversion was no good.
Keon Walters returned the kickoff to the Panther 33. Marquis Walters found Berry on a quick slant for an 8-yard touchdown pass. Valenzuela’s PAT was good and cut Clarksville’s lead 12-7.
Ryan Rogers intercepted Marquis Walters at the Subiaco 25 and took it to the 11. Schucker rolled right on the next play to find Tyler Minniear in the back corner of the end zone for the touchdown. Schucker then connected with Nowotny on the 2-point conversion to extend the Panther lead to 20-7 with 7:11 left in the first half.
Rogers intercepted Walters again at the Trojan 39 and raced to the 10. Schucker then found McKinney and completed the touchdown pass with 6:12 to go in the second quarter. Bateman caught Schucker’s 2-point conversion pass to push the Panthers ahead 28-7.
After trading punts again, Clarksville traveled to the Subiaco 10. Wesleigh Foster took the pitch and rolled right, looking to throw, but reverseed field and weaved his way in for the touchdown with 21 seconds left in the first half. Garcia’s PAT made it 35-7.
Keon Walters took over at quarterback and led the Trojans down the field on the opening drive of the third quarter. Ethan Ruselwald punched it in the end zone from the 7. Valenzuela’s PAT made the score 35-14 at the 10:03 mark.
Marquis Walters brought Subiaco into Panther territory with a 40-yard run to the 30. Ruselwald took the Trojans to the CHS 6 before running up the middle for the score. Valenzuela’s PAT was good and cut the Panther lead to 35-21 with 5:06 left in the third quarter.
Schucker was forced out of the pocket on third and 12, but threw to Bateman 40 yards downfield. Foster took Clarksville to the Subiaco 5 before Schucker raced up the gut for the touchdown. Garcia’s PAT made it 42-21 with 2:00 remaining in the third quarter.
Keon Walters marched back into Panther territory in three plays. Marquis Walters forced his way to the Clarksville 1. Keon Walters kept the option for the touchdown as time expired in the third quarter. Valenzuela’s PAT made it 42-28.
Marquis Walters recovered the onside kick for Subiaco. Jacob Nehus raced off tackle for a 21-yard gain to put the Trojans at the Panther 8, then Ruselwald raced around the left side for the touchdown. Valenzuela’s PAT pulled Subiaco within 42-35 with 9:37 left in the fourth quarter.
Foster later broke loose from the Panther 43 for a touchdown with 8:46 to go in the game. Garcia’s PAT gave CHS a 49-35.
Marquis Walters hit Nick Powell on a reverse pass from the 30 that put the Trojans at the Panther 1. Ruselwald scored on the next play with 1:44 remaining, and Valenzuela’s PAT made it 49-42.
Subiaco recovered the onside kick after it bounced off a Clarksville player, but Foster intercepted Keon Walters at the Panther 30 with 1:15 left.
Clarksville fumbled at the Trojan 20 with 10 seconds left and Keon Walters raced 50 yards before he was tackled as time expired. The Panthers travel to Pottsville next week.

Couldn't be happier for my boy and our team! Only 3 more games left in the regular season.
