CLEAR LAKE — Classes 2A, 1A, A and 8-Man in high school football have their regular seasons end tonight with the post-season starting next week, and for Clear Lake, tonight’s game with New Hampton has a huge bearing on their post-season plans. With a win and an Osage win over Crestwood, the Lions would be in a three-way tie for second place, and if they win the tiebreaker, could host a home game next week. With a loss, the Lions would finish fourth in the district and have to travel to face a district champion. Lions coach Jared DeVries says the team knows how important this game is to their Week 9 plans.

DeVries says his team knows they’ll have to stop the district’s leading rusher Braden McShane
