The Fairfield football team lost 29-0 at Clear Creek-Amana Friday night, but the Trojans were much more competitive than the score would imply.

The two Class 3A teams from neighboring districts were very evenly matched through the first 24 minutes of play, with the Clippers clinging to a 10-0 lead after Andrew Rohret threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Alex Figueroa with 2:51 left in the first and Mitch Evans hit a 31-yard field goal early in the second.

Fairfield appeared certain to score inside of the final minute of the half, although the Trojans fumbled into the endzone on third and six, after getting called for false start on third and one. The Clippers then recovered for a touchback and took their two possession advantage to the locker room.


Three in the third

CCA’s 5’10” 170-pound senior mobile quarterback led a balanced offensive attack with 18 pass attempts, 16 carries himself and 27 rushes split between the six Clippers that had a carry. Rohret totaled 59 rushing yards and two touchdowns, including a seven yard score with 10:07 left in the third that made it 16-0 and a 13-yard scamper with :20 left in the same frame to extend the home team’s lead to 29 points.


Stat studs

The Trojans split the snaps under center 60-40 between the two senior signal callers with Carson Crile going 6-14 with 36 yards and Brittan Bowman’s line reading 4-9 with 47 yards passing.

The Fairfield running back combination of sophomore Leone Gichure and senior Tristin Waugh combined for 118 yards on 35 carries with the 10th-grader leading the way with 22 touches for 72 yards.

Juniors Landon Kooiker and Carter Ferrel had four catches for 40 yards and three catches for 33 yards, respectively.

Waugh was the teams’ leading tackler with 10 solos, four assists and two for a loss plus a sack. Seniors Brittan Bowman, 7.5, and Mason Allen, 7.0, were the next top tacklers with each getting a stop for a loss and Allen assisting on a second.
