Yorktown RB explodes for 8 TDs, 520 yards as Tigers win


Chandler Carroll had a game for the ages Friday as he led Yorktown to a 78-49 win against Pendelton Heights. The senior running back rushed 33 times for school records of 520 yards and eight touchdowns.

Yorktown coach Mike Wilhelm said the Class 3A No. 8 Tigers (6-1, 4-1 Hoosier Heritage Conference), had 863 yards of total offense in the game.

“That was the challenge, how could we bounce back from (last week’s loss to New Palestine)?” Wilhelm said. “And I thought our offense bounced back more than well.”

* Jay County 36, Winchester 29: Jay County never trailed while dominating time of possession in the first half. Winchester ran just one play in the first quarter and four in the first half.

“Their offense is set up to keep the ball away from us, and they were successful with that,” Winchester coach Mike Jones said. “We moved the ball when we had it, but we couldn’t get them off the field.”

Curtis Enis rushed for 126 yards for the Golden Falcons and quarterback Dustyn Hangen rushed for three touchdowns.

* Shenandoah 43, Monroe Central 12: The undefeated Raiders (7-0) only led by eight at halftime, 14-6, but exploded in the second half for the convincing victory.

Marcus Drummer scored both touchdowns for the Golden Bears (4-3). Drummer hauled in a touchdown pass from Bracken Barge and returned a kickoff 85 yards for his second score.

* Eastern Hancock 72, Wes-Del 6: Mistakes killed the Warriors in their loss. They lost four fumbles and threw an interception.

“We shot ourselves in the foot,” coach Brad Hess said. “We have to get out of our own way and shore up our penalties and turnovers. There were a lot of unforced errors.”

Wes-Del’s long score was a 31-yard touchdown pass from Trevor Spencer to Devin Gill in the second quarter.

* Richmond 49, New Castle 3: The Trojans managed only 18 yards of total offense while giving up 462 in their loss. Their only points came on Ryan Jones’ 29-yard field goal.
