South Carroll continued its dominance on both sides of the ball Friday night, staying undefeated with a 47-7 victory on the road over Winters Mill.
The Cavaliers (3-0, 6-0), who are now the last football team in Carroll County without a loss, set the tone right from the onset when Sean Patrick recovered a fumble on the first Winters Mill (0-4, 0-6) drive. Shortly after, quarterback Ryan Barnard scored on a 6-yard touchdown run and South Carroll never looked back.
Barnard (12-18, 152 yards) ended up running for three touchdown and passing for two others to lead the offense. Defensively, Carter Mazalewski headlined a lengthy list of standouts by picking off multiple passes and returning one of those interceptions for a touchdown in the early stages of the first quarter.
A 31-yard touchdown reception by Logan Miller (4 catches for 65 yards) on a pass from Barnard gave South Carroll a 20-0 lead by the end of the first quarter. Barnard’s second touchdown run increased the lead to 27-0 midway through the second quarter.
Winters Mill got on the board just before halftime on its own interception return for a touchdown, making it 27-7 at the break. But it was all South Carroll in the second half.
Jackson Strzelczyk caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Barnard early in the third quarter to make it 34-7. Mazalewski intercepted his second pass on the next possession, setting up Barnard’s third rushing touchdown — this time for 19 yards out — to make it 41-7.
Caleb Blum then capped the scoring early in the fourth quarter with a 1-yard touchdown run. The South Carroll defense has now held five straight opponents to 7 points or less. Brandon Athey (two sacks), Eric Rapids, Lance Crown and Ben Simmens all had multiple tackles for loss for the Cavaliers.
