Game of the Week: Cleveland wins cross-town showdown with Clayton | Week 9

Game of the Week

Friday’s cross-town matchup between Clayton and Cleveland played out as evenly as one could expect. The all-time series is separated by one game, and all-time point totals are merely four points apart. Both also had 6-1 records going into the game.

Clayton started with a bang when quarterback J.R. Walker tore off an 81-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage, but couldn’t keep the momentum rolling as Cleveland emerged with a 35-21 win.

Cleveland responded with two Tyson Dew touchdown runs in the first quarter.

The Rams broke a tie in the second quarter when Jalen Chadwick took a kickoff 79 yards the other way and into the end zone.

Cleveland owned a two-touchdown lead at halftime, and went on to win by that margin.
