GOLDEN EAGLES FLY BY SOUTH
Clarke Sanders - September 10, 2016 10:25 pm
The Bishop Carroll Golden jumped on Salina South for two quick scores in the first quarter and never looked back enroute to 41-14 victory Saturday afternoon.
The game actually started Friday night about 7:15 PM, but torrential rain forced it to be postponed with less than four and a half minutes gone by in the first quarter. When the contest resumed Saturday at 4 PM, it was second and 9 for the Cougars with the ball on their own 11 yard line. Following two incomplete passes, South punted and Carroll marched down the field for a quick touchdown. South fumbled the ensuing kick-off and Carroll scored again making the score 14-0 at the end of one.
The Cougars got their first TD of the game in the second quarter on a nice run by Demaj Smith to pull within 7. Bishop Carroll scored the next 10 points to go up by 17, but South nearly got back in the game with under a minute to go in the first half when QB Casey Lanoue threw a touchdown pass to Tanner Raubenstine making it a 24-14 game. However, on the first play from scrimmage following the South kick-off Bishop Carroll hit pay dirt once again to lead by 17 at half.
The second half belonged to the defenses with Carroll putting up another 10 points while the Cougars were shutout in the final 24 minutes.
This Friday South heads back down I-135 seeking their first win of the season when they take on Campus.
