After a tough road loss to Villa Grove 20-15 in week 1, the Clinton Maroons will try to make the comforts of home enough for their first win when they host Braidwood Reed-Custer.
The Maroons led 15-14 with a minute left in the game before Villa Grove connected on a 51 yard pass and then got a 9 yard touchdown run from sophomore Chase Burwell to win the game.
The Maroons were able to bottle up the Blue Devils run game but quarterback Codie Baker threw for 225 yards.
Bryson Carson was the standout for the Maroons last week, carrying three times for 27 yards and had five receptions for 41 yards.
The Comets were shut out by Coal City 40-0 last Friday night on the road. Braidwood Reed-Custer, out of the Interstate 8 Small Conference, starts the year with three of their first four games on the road, this marking their second road game in a row.
