Clarkson/Leigh Patriots

Clarkson/Leigh football made quick work of Omaha Christian Academy on Friday taking a 44-0 lead in the first quarter before eventually winning 80-0 - the Patriots third straight win. 

Kyle Kasik rushed for 103 yards and four touchdowns on eight carries to lead the Patriots. 

"We have put an emphasis on the run game, and we are happier with the production we are getting there lately," Clarkson/Leigh head coach Jim Clarkson said. "I will say our defense has been playing at another level. Even in our loses, we gave up some points to two of the best teams, but our defense made them earn it. As we have hit the mid-season point, we are very excited by the way we are flying around on defense." 

Clarkson/Leigh out gained OCA 344-37 on the ground. 

Isaak Wiese rushed for 99 yards and two touchdowns on three carries, Eli Hays had 80 yards and two touchdowns and nine carries, Lance Paprockie had 48 yards and a touchdown on two carries and Jase Indra had 17 yards and a touchdown on three carries. 

Clarkson/Leigh also forced five turnovers, four fumbles and one interception. 

Carter Hanel took one fumble back for a touchdown. 

Drew Beeson led the team with nine tackles and Hanel recorded seven. 

Hanel, Trevor Zulkoski, Austin Sayers and Kanyon Held all finished with a tackle for a loss. 

With the win, the Patriots record goes to 3-2. 

Clarkson/Leigh will travel to Cedar Bluffs (0-5) this week.
