The Clarion-Limestone Lions opened the District Nine Class-A Soccer playoffs with a victory over the visiting Brookville Raiders, on Tuesday (October 25th).

The C-L Lions were the first to score Tuesday night in the first round of playoffs. Wyatt Boyden had the first and only goal of the first half. Both teams played with some great intensity.
