HUNTSVILLE — It was a different year and a different venue, but the storyline of Scott High’s season-opening showdown with Clinton on Friday was much the same as it was last time: missed opportunities.
The Highlanders, who lost 10-0 at Clinton to open the 2017 season after leaving several scoring opportunities on the field, twice came up empty in the red zone during the fourth quarter of Friday’s game, falling 16-8.
Scott High played well enough defensively to beat the Class 5A Dragons, using stops to set up scoring opportunities on a night where sustained drives were difficult for either team to accomplish. But Clinton’s defense proved equally good, creating stops and forcing turnovers when it mattered most.
