DuBOIS - After dropping an earlier season matchup to Ridgway by a 42-0 score, the return of leading rusher Austin Newcomb to the Clarion High School football team's roster had Bobcat fans hopeful for the rematch against the Elkers in the District 9 Class 2A championship game on Saturday night at E.J. Mansell Stadium.

Newcomb, who missed the first meeting due to an injury, got the Bobcats on the board in the first quarter as he hauled in a 63-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Cal German while Clarion took advantage of two turnovers by the Elkers in the second quarter to fuel a 21-0 run and a 28-14 edge at halftime.
