It came down to one play. Clinton-Massie (11-2) running back Bayle Wolfe scored his third touchdown of the game from four yards out on the final snap of the contest. It gave the Falcons a 21-20 win over Chaminade Julienne (9-4) in what will arguably goes down as the greatest play in the greatest game of Clinton-Massie football history. It is the program’s first ever Regional championship.
Wolfe, a sophomore continued his great season as his third and most important score marked the 30th time this year that he has crossed the goal line (28 rushing). The thrilling victory featured six lead changes.
Chaminade Julienne got on the board first on a short Darrien Howard run after a 57-yard kickoff return to start the game by teammate Niles Issac. Clinton-Massie worked their way back on top a minute into the second quarter on Wolfe’s first touchdown run. Eagles quarterback Sam Spees would hook up with Marco Gresham on a 66-yard scoring toss to give CJ a 14-8 lead just 0:20 later. That would stand heading into halftime.
After intermission Wolfe scored for a second time with just over three minutes left in the third, to give C-M a 15, 14 lead. Chaminade Julienne tailback, Brandon Payne finally got loose and scampered 48 yards for his 14th touchdown of the year. With 5:19 seconds left it looked like the Eagles were headed back to the final four the first time since 2003.
Clinton-Massie kept their composure and marched down field via the run in patented Falcons fashion. Wolfe would score as time expired and the history books continue to be rewritten in Clarksville. They will square off next Saturday against Kenton and the legendary, Maty Mauk.
