KINGS MILLS, OHIO – Bayle Wolf broke the Clinton-Massie single-game record for rushing yards.
Wolf, who has overcome arm and ankle injuries this season, had 33 carries for 365 yards and six touchdowns as the Falcons beat McNicholas, 52-14 in at Kings High School on Friday.
Second-seeded Clinton-Massie advances to the state quarterfinal round and will face the top seed, Kettering Alter – which beat Valley View 28-0 – on Friday at a site TBA.
With Clinton-Massie coming into this game outscoring its foes, 272-35, the Falcons quickly added to their points total as Wolf scored on their opening drive just minutes into the game.
The Clinton-Massie defense caused McNicholas quarterback Luke Sulken fits all night, pressuring him and generating several sacks. The Rockets had earned their first-ever playoff win at home last week.
Interceptions also plagued Sulken, and Clinton-Massie was able to turn those into points.
