Carthage’s Bret Patton hauls in a pass during a game last season. Patton caught a 19-yard touchdown pass from Colton Klein on Saturday to help the Red Men to a convincing 36-7 victory over Carroll at Art Keller Field.
The Carthage and Carroll football teams were locked in a tight affair through the first quarter Saturday afternoon at Art Keller Field.
That all ended in the second.
Carthage took control with a 22-point second quarter and cruised from there for a 36-7 victory in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin opener for both teams.
"They played hard, they played 60 minutes of good football," Carthage coach Dustin Hass said. "It's a CCIW win. It happens to be our first win (of the season), which is awesome. We're off to a good start in conference play. I'm proud of how our kids played."
Carthage (1-1, 1-0 CCIW) took a 7-0 lead on a 7-yard touchdown run by Dana Fontenot (17 carries, 116 yards) with four minutes left in the first quarter.
The Red Men followed with three scores in the second, the first on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Colten Klein to Bret Patton, followed by a 2-yard run by Fontenot and a 21-yard run by Klein.
