After a slow start, Patterson’s defense picked up the intensity.

A team effort to forced a safety at the end of the first quarter against Carver on Friday, giving the Clippers their first two points of the game. A play later, Patterson fumbled the kickoff. But Patterson defensive back/running back Taqile Muhammad picked up the slack by intercepting a pass and running it back almost 60 yards for a touchdown.

Patterson used the momentum and didn’t look back en route to a 20-6 victory.

After Muhammad’s touchdown to put the Clippers up 8-0, Carver answered with a touchdown. But with no time remaining on the clock in the first half, quarterback Craig Oliver heaved a 50-yard pass to running back Derwin Beasley, who took it in for a touchdown.

The Clippers added another score in the third quarter. Running back Mauice Green led Patterson rushers with 40 yards.
