And after taking the football program to new heights in each of the last three seasons, the Clifton Cubs garnered the accolades they had earned by winning their first district title since 2002, advancing to the playoffs for the third consecutive season for the first time since 1971, and winning their third straight bi-district championship while taking a seven-game winning streak into the area playoff matchup.

Senior Clayton Caniford rushed for one score, caught a touchdown pass, pulled down an interception and blocked a field goal to lead the Cubs on both sides of the ball.
