NOTES:

– The Bison have won 43 of their past 48 games overall and 36 of their past 37 regular-season games.

– Central Mountain High School was formed in 1999 with the merger of Lock Haven High School, Bald Eagle Nittany High School, and Sugar Valley High School.  Clearfield never played BEN or Sugar Valley in football, but had a long-standing series with Lock Haven that was played most years between 1956 and 1998 (a total of 43 meetings).  Lock Haven held the upper hand the series with a total of 25 wins, 16 losses, and 2 ties.  Clearfield won 8 straight meetings from 1982-1989 and from 1982-1998 went 11-6 against the Bobcats.  Lock Haven dominated the early years of the rivalry, going 19-5-2 from 1956 to 1981, including going 9-0-1 between 1959 and 1968.

Seth Caldwell: 17 carries, 117 yards, 2 TD

Receiving:

Ryan Lezzer: 2 catches, 73 yards

NOTES

– Clearfield’s 8 rushing touchdowns set the school’s single-game record.  The team’s previous high was 7, accomplished five times: vs. Bellefonte in 1978, vs. DuBois and Bald Eagle area (both in 2002), and vs. Central and Lewistown (both in 2008).

– The Bison’s 58 points scored is the third-highest total in school history since 1937, trailing only a 65-26 win over St. Marys in 1999 and a 60-8 win over Punxsutawney in 2005.

– The 88 combined points scored by both teams is the highest mark in a Clearfield game since a 56-35 loss to Bradford in 2006.  The highest-scoring game in school history also came against Huntingdon as 102 total points were scored when the Bearcats beat the Bison 68-34 in the 1998 PIAA playoffs.

– With his 202 yards rushing, Christian Lezzer surpassed the 3,000-yard mark for his career. He now sits at 3,006 career rushing yards on 412 carries.  Lezzer also came one touchdown shy of tying the District 9 (and school) record for rushing touchdowns in a single game.  According to d9sports.com, former Bison Dave Richards and Redbank Valley’s Mark Strothers share the district record with 7 rushing touchdowns in one game.  Richards set the mark in 2002 in a game against Bald Eagle Area in which he rushed 16 times for 363 yards, while Strothers equaled the record earlier this season.

– As a team, the Bison have rushed 220 times for 1,524 yards and 22 touchdowns through the first four games.  As a point of reference, 33 teams in school history have rushed for fewer than 1,524 yards in a season.  The 2013 Bison are averaging 381 yards per game and 6.9 yards per carry.
