2015 Chiefs Finish Strong With Winning Record

Clearfield’s 2015 Post #6 American Legion team played well over the second half, going deep into the league play-offs. After upsetting Bellefonte and Huntingdon (twice), they found themselves one game away from an appearance in the Region 7 Tournament. But a tough loss to Mifflin County in the finals ended the season, although their 11-10 final record came as a pleasant surprise to many. The 2015 roster was the youngest in many years. Regional Champ Beech Creek was the regular season winner, while Mifflin County won the Central Penn League play offs. The Chiefs finished third in the regular season.
