CARROLLTON – The Warrior football team wasn’t successful on the scoreboard Friday against Alliance.

They were successful in keeping Duce Johnson, a senior running back, from breaking out. Johnson averages 238 yards per game. Carrollton kept him at 208 yards.

“We played hard,” Coach Phil Mauro said. “They did a good job against an exceptional running back.”

Carrollton received the ball to start the game. Quarterback Parker Crim hooked up with running back Chase Flanagan in an attempt to get down field. Unable to get to another first down, the Warriors punted the ball and the Aviators took possession on the 39-yard line. On a first-and-goal, Aviator quarterback Howard Frazier ran for 7-yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good giving the Aviators an early 7-0 lead with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

Alliance kicked off to the Warriors and, after an Aviator penalty for illegal procedure, the ball was on the 35-yard line. The first play from scrimmage was an interception by Alliance, but did not result in any points.
