Carson High football finds bright spots against Bishop Manogue
The Senators, despite falling 42-0 on Friday against the defending regional champion Bishop Manogue, stayed loud throughout the evening and had a few flashes of brilliance.
After falling behind 14-0, the Senators went three-and-out, but got a quality roll on the ensuing punt leaving Bishop Manogue on its own 14.
After a first down run by the Miners, Ben Heaton popped a Bishop Manogue runner trying to go up the middle.
Carson pushed the Miners to fourth-and-5 and sniffed out a fake punt, resulting in the Senators getting possession in Bishop Manogue territory.
Quarterback Vinnie Ferretti and the Carson offense got the ball down to the 24, but a screen pass on fourth down that didn't get to the sticks stalled the drive.
Ferretti had several rollout completions on the night, finishing the contest 8-of-11 with 83 yards through the air.
Ferretti’s favorite target, DeCarlo Quintana, pulled down seven of those eight completions.
Though the Senator offense couldn’t find pay dirt against a stout Miner defense, Carson was able to move the ball, adding 80 more yards on the ground.
Out of halftime, Carson put together a nine-play drive that covered nearly half the field.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever had a senior class like this, that is so selfless and motivated to help us build something for next year,” Roman said. “The score was 42-0 and rarely do you come out of a game like that happy as a head coach, but I am.”You can find the full recap from Friday night's contest here.
UP NEXT: Carson (0-2) will travel to Galena (0-3) as both programs aim for their first wins of the season.
