Williams' running sends Clark Co. to 3-0

Ryan Williams ran left. He ran right. He ran down the middle and he ran all over the Tates Creek defense.

Clark County's senior running back turned in another dominant performance, with four touchdowns and 237 yards as the visiting Cardinals won 25-7 Friday night and remained undefeated at 3-0.

Williams came into the game as the state's leading rusher with 474 yards and four touchdowns in the Cards' two previous wins.

He doubled his season TD total on scoring runs of 64, 34, 14 and 10 yards — three in the second half as the Cardinals took control.

Clark County avenged a heart-breaking 54-48 double- overtime loss to Creek last season and grabbed its first win at Tates Creek since 1983.

Not that everything went perfectly for the Cardinals. They were penalized 15 times for 113 yards and only made one extra-point attempt.

Creek led 7-6 at halftime on Chris Kemplin's 41-yard TD pass to Jordan Hagan.
