Carroll Places Redskins in Tough Position
10/16/2010

It was a game of field position. When the powerful Bishop Carroll offense began drives in Liberal territory, they scored. When they began in their own territory they wound up punting more often then not. Carroll's statistics were actually less impressive than the score of 42-13 in Bishop Carroll's favor Friday night on Carroll Field in west Wichita. The 6-1 Eagles were held under their season averages but still bolted to a 28-7 halftime lead and never looked back in their fifth straight win over LHS since resuming the series in 2006. Carroll put up 285 yards of offense which was below their 325 per game and Liberal had 216 yards when BC allows an impressive 182 yards per game.

Carroll's first three touchdowns came on drives which started at the LHS 23, the 45, and the 10 to lead 21-7. Liberal vaulted themselves in the competition after a 14 play drive which included two 4th and 8 conversions including a Slader McVey eight yard TD pass to Tyson Deaton midway through the second quarter. It was McVey's 12th touchdown pass of the season and Deaton's fourth scoring grab. Liberal actually had some momentum when Jade Cathey picked off a Tyler Nance pass with 6:47 to play in the half. But Liberal dropped a pass leading to Carroll's Max Martinez intercepting a pass and taking it to the Liberal 10. The would score in three plays and never looked back. McVey rushed for a 24 yard touchdown with four seconds left for the final of 42-13.

There were bright spots for Liberal. The offensive line and running game improved. Isaac Gallegos ran for 86 yards and Liberal ran for 146 yards. Carroll held Jade Cathey in check. He had one catch for one yard. Liberal lost the turnover battle with two interceptions. Liberal is 2-5 and 0-1 in District 8. Carroll is 6-1. The Redskins hosts sis time defending state champ Hutchinson Friday night at 7 p.m. at Redskin Field.
