South Columbus 31, Clinton 20

TABOR CITY | While South Columbus had a tendency to dominate the opposition during the regular season, Friday night's playoff game against Clinton proved to be more competitive than they were used to.

Nevertheless, the Stallions (10-2) pulled out the victory and advances in the playoffs.

"We played alright," said Stallions coach Jake Fonvielle. "We did enough to win. Defense stepped up when we needed them to, offense made big plays, and we won the turnover battle."

The win vaults the Stallions into the second round of the2A state playoffs where they'll play the winner of South Granville/Jordan-Matthews.

"We're going to take it one game at a time," Fonvielle said. "If we can play at our full potential on both sides of the ball, execute, then we have a shot."
