TIPTONVILLE (October 18) — The West Carroll War Eagles traveled Friday for a region contest at Lake County. The War Eagles kept it close for much of the first half, but the Falcons pulled away before intermission and coasted in the second half to a 60-14 victory.
One silver lining for West Carroll was the return of all-around threat Jeremiah Bryant, who didn’t play in the previous week’s loss at Houston County. Bryant made his presence felt with two stellar plays for the War Eagles’ only two touchdowns. He ran for a 98-yard touchdown in the second quarter to cut his team’s deficit to 14-8, then returned a kickoff 93 yards in the third for a touchdown that made it 44-14.
Bryant’s touchdown in the second frame made it a one-score game, but Lake County struck twice in the last five minutes of the half. They added to the lead in the early seconds of the third quarter to all but put the game away.
The loss was the third straight for West Carroll, but only the first region loss. The team is still likely to earn a playoff spot.
The War Eagles (4-4, 3-1) travel to South Fulton Friday for a region contest. Kickoff is 7 p.m.
