In one of the most impressive playoff performances by a Tri-County Conference team in history, the Clinton Redskins are moving on to Division 6 state semifinals after beating Jackson Lumen Christi 49-20.
The Redskins (12-0) will play next Saturday.
Noah Poore scored on a 75-yard run, a 75-yard kickoff return and a 4-yard run. Mathew Sexton scored on runs of 26, 38, 80 and 57 as the Redskins rolled to the win.

The Redskins are 44-3 over the last four years.
