KNOXVILLE (WVLT) - The Clinton Dragons could have quit.

But despite trailing South Doyle 27-7 at halftime, Andy Shattuck's squad rallied.

In a big way.

The Dragons outscored the Cherokees 35-10 in the second half to claim victory, scoring the winning touchdown with eight seconds left in what may be the most exciting comeback so far this season.

The game started well enough for South-Doyle. Running back OJ Moore rumbled 87 yards for an early touchdown, and the Cherokees put 27 points on the scoreboard before Clinton could reach the end zone.

But things changed in the second half. The Dragons scored a touchdown to make the score 37-35, but failed to score the two-point conversion. But the last-second touchdown sealed the game, and the comeback, for Clinton.

South-Doyle looks to recover next week when it visits Gibbs. Clinton renews its rivalry with Oak Ridge next Friday at Blankenship Field.
