Carroll football thrives on Homecoming weekend

Coming off of two consecutive wins, the Carroll Chargers looked to keep the ball rolling Against the Bruins of Northrop. And it was apparent just minutes in that the Chargers are still hot. Coming in at 1-2 Northrop surely isn’t the toughest game of this season, but nothing is a given in high school sports.

Carroll opened the game with 34 consecutive points until the Bruins were able to put 7 on the board. As the Carroll reserves got in the game Northrop was able to score twice more. When the clock finally hit zero the Chargers walked away with a 54-21 victory. 

Top performers included Jacob Carmody, who ran for 162 yards and 2 scores on only 12 rushes, and Jeff Becker, who continued a great season with 3 touchdown passes.

Friday was much more than just football, as homecoming created a very lively environment, with fireworks, homecoming royalty, capped off by the big win.

The second half of the season will be a tough one, but the Chargers are focused on staying hot.

“We get what we work for,” Says Junior Joe Shiffler, “if the team takes it easy after the big wins we will play as we practice.”

Next up for the Chargers is always a tough competitor in the Bishop Dwenger Saints. The clash of Fort Wayne giants takes place Friday the 17th at Shields Field.
