Friday, Nov. 21, 1986: A memorable night

Thirty years ago, a big night of high school football, championship football at that, brought throngs of people to Central Clay County, Clay Center to be specific, for a game that was for all the marbles in Class C-2, the 1986 state championship. That night, Friday, Nov. 21, 1986, pitted two Twin Valley Conference and county rivals together on the Wildcats’ home turf for what many thought would be a game that would never happen. Both Clay Center and Harvard entered the playoffs as unranked C-2 football programs. The stars, however, aligned perfectly for the Wildcats and Cardinals, as Clay Center won a trio of challenging battles in the east bracket of the C-2 playoffs, while Harvard bullied their way through the west bracket. Clay Center had outscored Stromsburg, Yutan and Homer in the first three rounds by a combined score of 56-15, beating Stromsburg 21-3, Yutan 15-0 and Homer 20-12.
