Zyler Clifton

Walnut’s Zyler Clifton scored a pair of touchdowns and the decisive two-point conversion in their win over Potts Camp to snag a playoff spot.

Walnut found themselves in a similar position on Thursday night – in a tight game with an opponent that could decide whether their season would continue this week in the playoffs or come to an abrupt end.

The Wildcats pulled off the close win, 20-19, against Potts Camp to lock up a first-round playoff game this week. That was just two weeks after they fell in the final few seconds of a division matchup with Belmont.
