It was a tough night for Carson High football Friday in a 47-0 loss to Spanish Springs on the Senators’ home field.
Without three key starters, the Senators struggled to get much rhythm on either side of the ball.
Carson was without Parker Story and JT Heaton due to injury as well as missing Decarlo Quintana, who was forced to miss the game after being ejected last week.
“It’s big. It totally plays on the continuity (of the team),” said Carson High head coach Ryan Boshard. “I’m really proud of our two’s stepping up. We just had some real untimely mistakes that hurt us.”
Carson lost two fumbles in the first half, one of which stalled out a drive where the Senators had a shot to get within seven points.
“It just derailed us. We were ready to score,” said Boshard.
By the half, Spanish Springs held a 30-0 lead.
The Carson head coach said he expects the team to be mostly at full health next week, but could still be missing a piece or two come Thursday.
The loss leaves Carson with a 1-6 overall record and an 0-4 mark in Class 5A North league play.
UP NEXT: Carson will be on a shorter week as the Senators travel to Reno to take on Bishop Manogue (5-2, 5-0) Thursday.
After they play the Miners, the Senators will be back home for their regular-season finale against Douglas, Oct. 14.
