Carthage outscores Indians, 42-28

McCown throws for 295 yards and TD in loss

JACKSONVILLE —

 

Carthage strolled in the Tomato Bowl Friday night with a bitter taste in its mouth, one that had lingered there for right at a year.

The No. 2-ranked (Class 3A) Dawgs avenged a 34-30 upset loss to Jacksonville that occurred last season by chalking up a convincing, 42-28, win over the Tribe in a game that featured over 900 yards in total offense, which was expected as both schools returned just three starters each, respectively, on the defensive side.

Carthage led 21-14 at intermission and then got a key touchdown on a 44-yard scoring reception by Terlan Goree (from Blake Bogenschutz, a Texas-San Antonio signee) that came with 1:59 to go in the third period.

The score seemed to give the Dawgs some breathing room and a shot of late momentum.

The Bogenschutz-to-Goree combination accounted for three touchdowns on the night, with the others covering 3 and 36 yards.

Bogenschutz completed 15-28-0 for 281 yards.

Tevin Pipkin also proved to be a thorn in the young Jacksonville defense's side as he rushed for a pair of touchdowns and led all layers with 186 yards on 19 scampers.

Jacksonville had its share of offensive heros as quarterback Carter McCown went 27-42-0 for 295 yards and a touchdown, which came with 10:11 to go in the game when McCown dialed up Tony Lane from 12 yards out.

Senior Claude Franklin led the Tribe in receiving with five grabs for 115 yards, while sophomore Cash Cleaver hauled in seven passes for 73 yards.

Franklin and Cleaver were both making their varsity debuts on Friday.

Stacy Cummings topped out with 58 yards on nine carries to guide Jacksonville's ground game, despite missing most of the second half for unknown reasons, while Lekendrick Anderson added 51 yards on even trots.

Anderson also played well on the defensive side, batting down two Bogenschutz passes while Shylar Schreier swatted one pass down.
