Scary Night for Redskins

KSCB News - October 31, 2009 12:00 am

Don’t expect many Liberal children to dress up like Blake Bell for Halloween Saturday night. The senior quarterback headed to OU terrorized the Liberal defense by throwing four touchdowns and running in four scores Friday night at Redskin Field. He unofficially had 220 rushing hards and 175 passing yards in Carroll’s 61-35 district 8 clinching win over 3-6 Liberal. Liberal turned the ball over three times but twice on special teams. The Redskin defense stopped the first Eagle drive forcing a punt which Liberal muffed and BC recovered at the Liberal 27. Bell would later throw his first of four touchdowns. Liberal came back and tied the game after Kedrick Eyle dislodged a ball from a Carroll running back and Austin Pitts recovered at the Carroll 12. A Slader McVey five yard run made it 7-7 with 5:19 to play in the first quarter. Bell tossed a six yard TD on fourth down eight seconds into the second quarter but Carlos Rodriguez blocked the kick to make it 13-7. The Carroll defense held LHS three and out. On the insuing drive Bell broke off his biggest play of the night a 58 yard touchdown run to make it 19-7 after the two point attempt failed. Liberal’s next drive resulted in first and goal from the six but the Skins dropped a pass in the endzone and settled for a missed 28 yard field goal. Carroll came back and made it 26-7 on a 16 yard Bell pass. Bell added another TD toss with 1:27 remaining before halftime to make it 33-7. McVey found Jade Cathey for his eighth TD rececption this season, a 32 yarder which made it 33-14 at halftime. Liberal fumbled the opening second half kickoff at the one. Carroll would punch it in on the next play to make it 40-14. Liberal’s first drive resulted in a touchdown when McVey found Tyson Deaton for a 14 yard TD pass. A Bell five yard run made the scored 47-21 after three quarters. Bell added a 39 yard run and a four yard run in the fourth quarter. McVey found Deaton again for a 33 yard score and Cesar Ontiveros scored the games final TD when he scooped up a BC fumble and returned in 55 yars for a touchdown. Liberal head coach Wade Standley says his guys didn’t make the plays necessary. “Just playing hard and giving it your all is a great thing but you have to be able to make plays but we just didn’t do that tonight in key situations.” McVey tossed three touchdowns and ran for one. He unofficially passed for 225 yards against a Carroll defense who just allowed over 200 yards two other times. The 3-6 Redskins play at 9-0 defending state champ and top ranked Hutchinson Friday at 7 PM in Hutch. The game will air on Talkradio 1270 and kscb.net.
