The Salina South Cougars avenged two consecutive playoff losses to Bishop Carroll Friday night, and in the process snapped the Wichita school’s 23 game winning streak with a 21-19 win. The Cougars finally defeated the Golden Eagles, after disappointing playoff losses to them the last two years.
After a scoreless 1st quarter, Bishop Carroll took a 7 – 0 lead following a South turnover.
The Cougars would tie it at 7 – 7 with 2:56 left in the half on a Justin Stonebraker 45 yard touchdown run. They would get the ball back again, and score with just :12 left in the half on a Stonebraker to Mitch Roets 10 yard pass to lead 14 – 7 at the break.
After a scoreless 3rd quarter, Bishop Carroll would score with 9:20 left in the game. The extra point hit the upright, though, and was no good. South led 14 – 13.
With 2:58 left in the game Mike Jones broke free on a 78 yard touchdown run, and after Keven Kraus’s P.A.T. was good, the Cougars led 21 – 13.
Bishop Carroll was not finished, though. With :50 left in the game the Golden Eagles scored to pull to within 2. On the 2 point try which would tie the game, Troy Smith caught a pass in the endzone, but was out of bounds.
The Cougars then ran out the clock, and held on for the 21 – 19 win.
South is on the road again next week, in Wichita. They will play the Kapaun Mt. Carmel Crusaders at Cessna Stadium with a berth in the state championship game at stake.
