Carrollton 21, Louisville 0
Carrollton forced 6 Louisville turnovers and held the Leopards offense to just 150 total yards during their 21-0 victory at Community Field Friday night. The shutout is the first against the Leopards since November November 18, 2005 when they lost 7-0 to Canfield in the Regional Finals.
Quarterback Jeremy McQuilkin helped ignite a few sparks of offense for the Leopards by passing for 83 yards and rushing for 50 yards. Wide Receiver Trent Ohman also had 6 catches for 47 yards and ran for 43 yards on 9 carries. Despite a few decent drives, Louisville’s offense always stalled before they could even get into field goal range. The closest they ever got to scoring all night long was the Carrollton 32 yard line.
After a scoreless first quarter, the tide began to turn in Carrollton’s favor after they stopped Ohman just short of a first down on a 4th-and-1 play from the Warriors 40. After the turnover on downs, the Warriors Jake Peterson ran to the left side twice for an 11 yard carry and also a 49 yard touchdown run. Peterson finished the night as the games leading rusher with 124 yards on 25 carries.
Peterson also set up the next Warrior touchdown when he ran 21 yards to the Leopards 1 on the first play of Carrollton’s next drive. The drive began on the Louisville 22 after Carrollton linebacker Stephen Cole fell on a Louisville fumble. The Warriors completed their second consecutive 2 play scoring drive when Cody Stragan pounded the ball in from a yard away. In just 22 seconds of gametime the scoreless tie had turned into a 14-0 advantage for Carrollton.
Another turnover setup the Warriors inside Louisville territory to begin their third scoring drive of the quarter. Carrollton Defensive Lineman Trenton Leggett tipped the Leopard pass at the line and Linebacker Austin Miller recorded his first interception of the season. The Warriors would march 31 yards on 6 plays before Tyler Dodd muscled his way into the endzone from 4 yards out to put Carrollton up 21-0.
The Leopards had a few opportunities to get on the board in the second half, but the Warriors slammed the door each time. In the third quarter, Louisville failed to convert on a 4th-and-7 from the Carrollton 32 yard line when a crowd of Carrollton players sacked McQuilkin. Two other Louisville drives ended with interceptions deep down field by Storm Mohn and Caleb Moyer. Moyer also had a fumble recovery to end a Louisville first quarter drive. Finally, the Carrollton defense put an exclamation point on their performance when Stragan came with a vicious hit from the blindside to force a fumble. Defensive Lineman Richard Anderson was their to fall on it for Carrollton to seal the game and the shutout.
The 21-0 loss marks the first time a Leopards team has been shutout in a regular season game since September 26, 2003 when Northwest defeated Louisville 19-0 at Louisville Stadium. The last time Louisville was shutout on the road was on September 8, 2000 when Jackson defeated them 20-0. Finally, before Friday’s contest the Leopards had never before been blanked during an NBC road contest.
It just was not the Leopards night at Community Field Friday as they fell to 4-3, 2-2 on the season. Carrollton also played perfect in the turnover department and thus moved to 5-2, 2-2 on the season. Louisville will look to get back on track when they host the West Branch Warriors on October 12.
