Jaden Stewart was the recepient of four Clark passes for 64 yards on the night. On the ground, Dakota Wireman rushed the ball 28 times for 72 yards and Caleb Moore picked up 24 yards on six carries.

Crestline managed just 208 total yards of offense against the Eagles (116 passing, 92 rushing) but would leave with the victory.

The Bulldogs will play their first home game of the year next week when they welcome the South Central Trojans to Hutson Stadium.
