Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The streak is over. The UW-Eau Claire team is officially in the win column after a 13-6 victory over UW-River Falls on Saturday.

The Blugolds entered the game without leading rusher, and overall workhorse, Joel Sweeney. But sophomore Clint Larsen was up to the task. The Eau Claire Memorial grad rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Blugolds to the victory.

"He can hit it from anywhere. He's got great speed. He's a play maker, Clint is," says head coach Todd Glaser.

"We came out with better tempo. We weren't discouraged even though we came off a couple game losing streak, so we just stayed positive and helped each other out," adds Larsen.

The Blugolds don't get much time to celebrate. The team travels to face War on 94 rival UW-Stout on Saturday.
