A quick recap of Clyde's 63-0 win Saturday against St. Mary CC at Strobel Field, which gave the Fliers a fourth-straight win and Clyde coach Marc Gibson a 100th career victory.

TURNING POINT: How about the first play on offense for Clyde, which lined up in the Wishbone, and ran the flea-flicker. Ryan Meyer's 34-yard TD pass to Sam Jess down the right sideline put Clyde up for good, 7-0.

The first six SMCC drives were all three-and-out, and the first eight Clyde drives were all TDs for a 56-0 halftime lead.

STAT OF THE GAME: 8.6 and 1.0. One of those represented Clyde's yards per play on offense (47 plays for 404 yards) and other was SMCC's yards per play (44 plays for 45 yards).

BEST PLAYER IN THE GAME: For a third straight game. Brad Smith, Clyde. He gained 162 yards on 16 carries in the first half and scored six times.

He didn't break the 200-yard barrier like his previous two games (the 50-6 win against Huron and the 54-7 win against Margaretta). Smith, who now shares the school record for TDs in a game with Dick Farrar and Alex Gillett, didn't play in the second half.

BEST CALL: Whatever play the coaches called on the five one-play drives. The Fliers had scoring drives of 34, 38, 1, 2 and 34 yards that needed one play to find the endzone. The first score was the flea-flicker, the second was an end-around to Adam Turner, and the rest were all TD runs by Smith.

NEXT WEEK: Clyde (4-2, 3-0 SBC) vs. Perkins (0-6, 0-3 SBC); SMCC (3-3, 1-2 SBC) at Port Clinton (4-2, 2-1 SBC)
