Frankfort rallied to score 14 points in the second half on its way to a 20-12 season-opening non-conference victory over Clinton Central Friday night in Michigantown.
The Hot Dogs had a rushing touchdown and two scores through the air along with a two-point conversion for the victory.
A big key in the victory for Frankfort was the fact it forced six turnovers by Central, including four fumbles. One of the two interceptions came on the final play of the game which helped FHS hang on for the win.
Daiden Taulbee and Keegan Burnette each scored a touchdown for the Bulldogs. Zander Hall led the team in tackles with 13 and Tyler Rayl added 11.
