The Tyrone Golden Eagles lost yet another tough game against a quality opponent on Friday night, 35-7 to the Mountain League leading Clearfield Bison. That makes three straight losses for the Golden Eagles following a four-game winning streak to start the season.

Clearfield quarterback Isacc Rumery, who just this week announced his intention to walk on at Penn State next fall, threw for 184 yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles. Rumery also set a Clearfiled school record, becoming his school’s all-time career passing leader, surpassing 1994 graduate Chad Kroell, who finished his career with 6,088 yards.

We took a step forward from the previous week but we still have a lot of work to do to get to where we want to be”

— Jason Wilson

Tyrone came into the game a heavy underdog but jumped on the board early when Zac Albright scampered 6 yards for the touchdown giving Tyrone a 7-0 lead with 8:08 remaining in the first quarter.  That drive was highlighted by two long Denver Light throws to Tommy Hicks and Cory Lehman. 

However, Clearfield responded by marching down the field on their next possession, scoring on a 15 yard run from senior Caleb Freeman, who had 71 yards on the evening.

After a failed 2 point conversion Tyrone held a 7-6 lead with 4:12 left in the opening quarter.

Neither team could convert in the rest of the opening quarter so the Golden Eagles had upset on their mind, holding a slim 7-6 lead after the first.

We took a step forward from the previous week but we still have a lot of work to do to get to where we want to be,” said Tyrone Head Coach Jason Wilson.

Unfortunately for the Eagles, the Bison jumped back into their groove early in the second as they put together another impressive scoring drive, taking a 13-7 lead with 8:55 remaining in the second quarter on a 9-yard touchdown pass to Taye Lynch.

The turning point of the game happened on the next Bison drive. After a Tyrone punt, the Bison moved the ball the length of the field and were knocking on Tyrone’s door with a first and goal from the 3-yard line.

However, Tyrone’s defense answered the call and put up a big goal-line stand, giving the Eagles the ball back on their own 3 with 2:00 remaining in the half.

After completing a 6-yard pass to tight end Cory Lehman on second down, Tyrone’s Denver Light went deep on third-and-4, but it was picked off by Clearfield’s Taye Lynch at the 45, who returned the interception to the Tyrone 23.

This set Clearfield up for another touchdown, as Rumery found senior Barrett Kline wide open to take a 21-7 lead going into the half.

Clearfield came out strong in the third quarter, on their first drive they marched 65 yards for a one-yard touchdown dive by junior Brett Zatonni, extending their lead to 28-7 with 7:47 left in the third.

Zatonni scored again on a 33 yard run take a 35-7 lead 4:36 left in the quarter.

Neither team made any progress before the end of the quarter so Clearfield held on to a commanding 35-7 lead.

Tyrone’s defense did hold the Bison out of the end zone for the fourth quarter but their offense was not able to make any progress of cutting the deficit.

One bright spot for the Eagles was the return of starting the offense and defensive lineman from last year, junior Kaleb Snook who played his first game of the year after tearing his ACL last winter.

“It felt great getting back on the field and getting to play with my brothers,” said Snook.

With the loss, the Golden Eagles fall to 4-3 on the season with a 2-3 record in the Mountain League.

They look to bounce back this Friday as they take on another tough team in Hollidaysburg as Gray’s Field.
