The Bison (6-5) trailed by just six, 27-21, at the break but couldn’t get on track after halftime in losing for the second time this season to the Red Raiders.

Dylan Deitrich ran for two touchdowns and threw for two more, while C.J. Funk had a pair of rushing touchdowns for Bellefonte.

Isaac Rumery threw two scores for Clearfield, including a 90-yard strike to Taye Lynch, and added a rushing touchdown.

The first-half was a back-and-forth affair with Bellefonte going up 6-0 on a 4-yard Deitrich touchdown run that was answered with a 7-yard Rumery to Spencer Graham touchdown pass to put the Bison up 7-6.

But a 21-yard run by Funk and a 17-yard scamper by Deitrich made it 19-7 Bellefonte before Rumery’s 90-yard scoring pass to Lynch cut the lead to 19-14.

Funk answered with a 27-yard run to make it 27-14, but Rumery scored on a 1-yard run before halftime to close the gap to six.

But Deitrich threw a pair of touchdown passes to Stephen Kutches (47 yards and 7 yards) after the break, Dexter Gallishaw added an 11-yard scoring run, Colton Burd an 8-yard touchdown run and Cade Fortney a 65-yard pick six to blow the game open for the Red Raiders.

Rumery was 15 of 32 for 206 yards the two touchdowns and two interceptions, while also running for 31 yards and a score on nine carries. Lynch had eight catches for 164 yards and the two with Graham catching two balls for 34 yards. Brett Zattoni ran 13 times for 59 yards.
