Tyler Walker, a junior, scored three touchdowns in a blowout win for Clayton over Affton.
The Clayton Greyhounds got off to a quick start Friday night at Gay Field against Suburban East Conference rival Affton and never let up, scoring early and often in a 49-2 victory for the home team. Tyler Walker, a junior, had three touchdowns for the Greyhounds, who led 21-0 at the end of the first quarter, and 35-0 at halftime, before grabbing an eventual 49-0 lead early in the fourth.

Please tune in to Clayton-Richmond Heights Patch later for the full story on Friday's Clayton win.
