Clyde clinches SBC outright with 42-6 win vs. Edison

The Fliers finished off their regular season with a 42-6 statement win Friday over Edison in Clyde.

Their statement: We're on the top tier of the Sandusky Bay Conference, and we're here alone. And we'll take a home playoff game, too.

"This is very much a big highlight of our season, but, like coach (Marc Gibson) said, we have our second season coming up right now," Clyde quarterback Ryan Meyer said.

"I knew that our program has always been good and there was going to be a lot on this team this year to keep it up and we did. So far."

The Fliers, heading into the game the No. 3 in the Region 10 standings, secured a home game and the No. 2 seed.

Clyde (9-1) will likely host Shelby or Columbus DeSales next Saturday in the first round of the regional playoffs, the Fliers' seventh home game this season.

Gibson said that the Fliers had "no preference" of whom they would like to face.

"It's out of our hands," he said. "The only thing in our hands was to give the effort to win as many games as we (could) to get in, and there's only so many schools that can get in every year."

The Fliers were guaranteed to at least share their fourth straight SBC title heading into Friday's game. With the win, they secured it outright, for the third time in the last four years.
