Carroll 4-0

Eufaula tried to make it three straight last-minute victories, but Carroll finally put an end to the cardiac Tigers’ run and slugged its way to a 35-23 victory Friday night.

The win leaves Carroll at 4-0 overall and 3-0 in region play. Eufaula dropped to 3-2 overall, 1-1 in region action.

Eufaula appeared set for a third-consecutive dramatic rally as it had the ball down just 28-23 with 3:56 remaining. Carroll buckled down and held the Tigers on downs, then added a late score for insurance.

Eufaula led twice in the first half – 7-0 and 14-7 – but Carroll answered each time and fought to a 14-14 deadlock at the half.
The Eagles scored two third-quarter touchdowns and seemed in control at 28-14, but Eufaula got a safety on a bad snap on a Carroll punt to make it 28-16.

Eufaula fumbled into the Carroll end zone just a few plays earlier that would have cut the lead to one score. The Tigers also reached the Carroll 7-yard line early in the fourth but turned the ball over on downs after a third-down pass was dropped on the goal line.
