Our Carlisle Indians took their undefeated 3-0 record into their first SWBL Buckeye matchup last night versus the defending champs Waynesville Spartans. As previously reported, Carlisle dominated on defense and took the win from the Spartans 41-33. This score was not anywhere near the tale of the game. Carlisle led the game 41-17 until the last five minutes of the game and the Stingy Waynesville Spartans would just not go down that easy. Waynesville deserves a lot of credit in a valiant effort to close out the game. But Carlisle managed to slow down that effort and escape with a great win!!

The game started out with the Indians defense pretty much controlling the pace. Carlisle took advantage of 2 picks of Waynesville QB Cory Young and forced a fumble. In the first half, Nick McGill kept his unbelievable season rolling with two touchdowns and Jake Gibson added one. At the end of the half, Carlisle was up 20-10.

As the game went on Carlisle showed it's running dominance with Nick McGill rushing for 109 yards and despite fumbling three times and coughing it up to the Spartans twice "The Real Deal" McGill with determination still prevailed with a fine game.

The defense until the final five minutes was stingy as usual not letting Waynesville get in a groove. Deron Dawes was in the backfield twice sacking the Waynesville Quarterback for losses. Along, with the interceptions and fumble recovery Carlisle's Defense looks as good as it has ever been in history past.

Place kicker Kris Garrett also had another outstanding game converting on 5 of 6 extra points.

Waynesville moves to 2-2 on the season and Carlisle moves to an outstanding 4-0. The Indians do not get much of a break they have to go on the road next week to a very athletic Northridge squad and then on the road against Monroe. Two very tough SWBL Buckeye challenges and then the Indians, you have to think, are also looking somewhat ahead to an October 16th showdown with neighbor Valley View in Germantown!!


More stats to come on Monday of the Waynesville game!!
