24 Straight Regular Season Wins

 Carroll made it back-to-back regular seasons without a loss by edging Bayside Academy 20-17 Friday night.

Our Eagles, 10-0 and ranked No. 2 in Class 5A, have now won 24 straight regular-season games over a three-year span. 

Carroll took the early lead midway through the first quarter when Tyler Benton scored on an 8-yard run and Charles Irving kicked through the extra point.

A Bayside field goal cut it to 7-3 with 6:46 to play in the second quarter and then the home team went ahead on a 9-yard touchdown pass with 15 ticks to play before halftime to lead 10-7.

Carroll got back on top with 5:30 to play in the third quarter when Markel Lewis ran in from 25 yards out. The PAT kick was blocked.

Mazue Martin scored on a 20-yard run with 2:03 left in the game and Irving knocked through the PAT for a 20-10 lead.

Bayside pulled within three with 42 seconds remaining on a 35-yard touchdown pass, but Carroll recovered an onside kick and quarterback Tim McLendon took a knee to end the game.

Lewis had 58 yards rushing on 10 carries, Benton had 57 on 10 tries and Martin had 48 on 10 tries in the balanced Carroll attack.

The Eagles will talke on the Talladega Tigers, Friday night at home in the first round fof the playoffs. Kick off is at 7:00. Please come put and support your Carroll Eagles
