Carey 35, McComb 28
November 1, 2008 - Zach Baker
This entire year, I think I saw one game decided late in the fourth quarter.
My guess is I won't see a game as good as the regional quarterfinal between Carey and McComb the rest of this season.
Derek Stock's touchdown with 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter was the difference. Stock carried a few defenders with him into the end zone. It was his third score of the day, and he finished with 107 yards rushing.
The teams combined for 42 points in the first quarter, with the Panthers rallying from a 28-7 deficit to tie the game before halftime.
Then, nothing for more than two quarters.
In the final minutes, it was linebacker Logan Norden's hit on Matt Dishong that provided the decisive turnover.
In all honesty, I hadn't imagined I'd be interviewing Norden after the game. Statistics are slanted to the offensive side, so those are the guys that usually get tape recorders put in their faces after games.
But Norden and the Carey defense came up big, allowing the Blue Devils to play another week.
What will they do for an encore?
