Parker Crim (14) races down the sideline to the end zone after intercepting a Cambridge pass Friday night.

The ability to turn Cambridge mistakes into points kept Carrollton in the football game Friday at Franklin Stadium, but ultimately, it was a mistake of their own that cost them the victory.

Warrior Teagin Mohn picked up a Cooper Kerns fumble on the Carrollton 3-yard line and ran it back 97 yards for a touchdown with just over a minute remaining in the first half. The kick by Rigo Viveros was good to give the Warriors their first lead of the game at 14-13.

Midway through the third quarter, Parker Crim picked off a Cody Moore pass and retuned it 38 yards for a touchdown to give the Warriors a 21-13 lead.

Warriors pick up first soccer win

MAGNOLIA – Carrollton came from behind to win the first boys soccer game of the season last week over Sandy Valley.

The Warriors fell behind 1-0 but fought back to tie the score at 1-1. The Cardinals took a 3-2 lead into halftime. Once again, the Warriors fought back and tied the score. With five minutes left in the game, Sandy Valley committed a penalty just outside the box. Carrollton foreign exchange student Lennart Rossius (from Germany) took the kick and scored the winning goal.

“Rossius bent it around their four-man wall beautifully,” said Coach A.J. Atkinson. “I could not be prouder of my team. We fought throughout the whole game.”

Even though his team was down by one goal at halftime, Atkinson said he knew his team was confident.

The Malvern Hornets left it all on the field Friday night when they traveled to United Local.

United Local won the non-league contest 12-6, but not without a last ditch effort that had fans holding their breath as the clocked ticked down in the fourth quarter.

Malvern began the fourth quarter with second-and-nine on their own 37. A quarterback keeper left the Hornets with third-and-14 on the 23. An incomplete pass brought fourth down. The pass fell incomplete, but a flag for interference against United Local gave the Hornets another chance. After another incomplete pass, the Eagles took over on the 16-yard line.

AKRON – Carrollton was its own worst enemy Friday night at Coventry High School.

The Warriors fumbled the ball seven times, losing four, and had nine penalties for 70 yards that resulted in a 41-7 loss to the Comets.

The Warrior defense held the Comet offense to 206 yards on the ground and 19 passing, but the offense mustered only 24 yards passing and ran for a negative 54 yards on the ground.

“We knew they had a good team,” said Warrior Coach Phil Mauro. “They had 18 starters back. When you combine that with an All-Ohioan (Treon Sibley) and two others who run the ball well, you are facing an excellent team. But I make no excuses. We didn’t take care of the football and put our defense in bad situations all night.”

Carrollton struck first.
