The Carson Tiny Mite Blue Pop Warner football team remained unbeaten and in first place with a 24-6 win over the Sparks Cardinal over the weekend.
Wingback Alex Myrehn had two TDs for Carson, while Jessie Delgado and Zach Guthrie had one apiece. Huge holes were opened by fullback Tyler Lafollette and linemen Eli Locatelli, Drake Hardcastle and Dylan Cooley. The Blue defense shut down Sparks for most of the game, led by linemen Chris Borges and Julian Hazelton, end Skylar Southwell, and DBs Daniel Alvarado, Quentin Beck and Eric Pool.
The Blue can clinch the league championship in its next game vs. Fallon on Saturday.
The Carson Unlimited Pop Warner team droppedto 3-2 following a 30-0 loss to rival Douglas Friday in Gardnerville.
The score was not indicative of the effort put forth by the Senators. Carson's defense held the Tigers scoreless in the first quarter behind great play from Donald Hurst, Conner Larkin, Sevon Mandoki, Jarod Butler, John Rowe and Adrian Michel. Carson moved the ball well behind the running of Dennis Krueger and Johnny Cavilia but made the most yards with pass completions from Justin Lopez and Cavilia to Harry Meyer.
Douglas returned the second-half kick-off 80 yards for a touchdown which took the wind out of Carson's sails.
Carson sits in second place behind Douglas in the Unlimited standings and will take on the Sparks Wolfpack on the road Friday at 6 p.m.
