South Carroll hits the ground running


South Carroll coach Gene Brown grounded his offense Friday, but it was the Cavaliers' opponent -- North Carroll -- that was punished.

The Cavaliers (4-1) ran the ball on 61 of 62 plays, which accounted for 245 of their 289 yards total offense in the 35-6 victory.

South Carroll, led by Mike Dodd's 98 yards rushing, had scoring drives of 19, 11 and 10 plays, all of which consumed at least five minutes. On those drives, every play was a run.

In the first half, the Cavaliers maintained possession for nearly 18 minutes, including all but 52 seconds of the first quarter.

What kind of night was it for North Carroll (0-5)? South Carroll's lone pass was a 44-yard touchdown from Jason Harich to Chris Lyerly late in the first half.

"We've been averaging about six or seven passes per game," Brown said. "I hope we'll throw more as the season progresses."
