First quarter dooms Bruins
Barlow spots Clackamas a three-touchdown lead in the first quarter and can't fully recover
Mount Hood Conference
The Barlow Bruins reached into their bag of tricks in an effort to find an early advantage against Clackamas in Fridays Mount Hood Conference matchup of unbeatens. Barlow successfully executed a hook-and-ladder play on its first play from scrimmage to bring Bruins fans to their feet.
Clackamas kept the Barlow faithful silent for the rest of the opening quarter.
The Cavaliers were a step or two faster than Barlow in the first 12 minutes. They stifled Barlows offense and moved down the field at will when they had the ball. Clackamas jumped out to a 21-0 lead before the first quarter was out and led from there to claim a 31-19 road win.
Clackamas (4-0) looks to stay perfect as it hosts Centennial next Friday. The Bruins (3-1) will try to bounce back at home against David Douglas.
