Air Force added to the lead five minutes later, as David Schill, who assisted on the first goal, was on the end of a two-on-one break, and finished the play with a shot that just trickled past Clitheroe at 19:56.
Colin Eames finished off the scoring, when Marcus Sagastume won a battle for the ball with Clitheroe, and found Eames all alone near the goal for the easy score at 55:16.
