The fact this huge rivalry game was played in week #1 is a testament to how life has changed for both teams now in different classifications.

Garden Plain scored two touchdowns in the second quarter and that was enough.

Conway Springs scored on a 13-yard Cole Schulte touchdown run to pull within one with 2:42 to play. The Cardinals then went for two points on the PAT but could not get into the end zone.

Feature story: Wellington falls to Clearwater 36-29 after erasing double-digit deficit

Wellington’s Dustyn Schettler scores a 57-yard touchdown run in the third sparking a big comeback.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For one evening, all the awfulness of 2020 didn’t matter.

For those lucky enough to get into Sellers Park, saw one of the best high school football games you will ever witness when Clearwater defeated Wellington 36-29 in overtime.

Not since 2016 has Wellington seen overtime. Wellington nearly pulled off a double-digit comeback in which it was down 17-0 in the second quarter. For much of that first 12 minutes, Clearwater dominated the game.

But Wellington showed incredible moxie after getting its first touchdown late in the second quarter and eventually tying the score and sending it into overtime.

Clearwater would score on its second play of the extra period. Wellington was nailed by a block-in-the-back penalty and failed to score on three incomplete passes. Berkley Wright’s throw, after nearly getting sacked, to a group of receivers and defenders tipped away in the endzone.
