Wolfpack football opens with a loss
Junior quarterback Paul Manus struggles into the end zone with 2 Great Oak defenders in tow on Friday during the Pack’s season opener at CHS. The Claremont football team lost Friday’s home, non-conference game against Great Oak by a score of 38-14, however, they showed some definite drive in the process. After being completely outplayed during most of the first half, and trailing Great Oak 31-0, Claremont put together a strong set of offensive plays culminating with junior Cecil Fleming’s dash into the end zone with just 15 seconds to spare. After the half the Pack came out fired up and scored again when quarterback Manus ran the ball in bringing the score to 31-14. Unfortunately for Claremont, Great Oak quickly scored again ending any hope that the Pack would come out ahead. CHS’ next game will be August 31 against Glendora High School at Citrus College.
