7-6, Rochester at the half

Clairton threatened late in the first, moving to the Rochester 20, but a snap on a field goal attempt was off-target and holder Kevin Weatherspoon was dragged down by the Rams defense as the half ended. Funny thing: Clairton was …

Scoreless after the first quarter. Quick game. It’s not even 11 a.m. Clairton getting ready to score, with first and 10 on the Rochester 14. Clairton quarterback Desimone Green, at 6-5, 220, is tough to bring down.
