By Brett Voss

 

For the Clifton Cubs, adversity   their way last Friday night, presenting them with a gut-check they were not expecting. But by overcoming the unexpected, the Cubs once again made winning a playoff game look like an expectation.

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.
