Van scored first with 59 seconds left in the first quarter, when McClelland broke loose for a 56 yard run to paydirt. Malakoff's Mike Chandler almost caught him near the goal line, but McClelland outdistanced him. McClelland, a one,man team for Van Friday night, also kicked the PAT'to put the Vandals ahead 7-0.
