Despite a valiant effort in the first half, the Carbon High Dinos football team could not continue the momentum in the second half as they fell to American Leadership Academy 36-7, in Spanish Fork on Friday night.

The Dinos kept the game within reach in the first half as they fought back and forth with the Eagles. The scoring opened in the first quarter as the Eagles (1-1 Region 10, 1-6) scored on a Brett Haynes 5-yard run, but the point after attempt failed, giving ALA a 6-0 lead.

The Dinos answered back in the second quarter as they scored on a 16-yard pass from Dakota Cisneros to Tanner Gagnon. The touchdown and point after put the Dinos ahead 7-6.

From that point on it was all ALA as the Eagles scored 30 unanswered points. Late in the first half, the Eagles got a safety after Cisneros was called for intentional grounding in the end zone, giving the Eagles an 8-7 lead. Moments later after getting the ball back, the Eagles marched down the field scoring on a Brett Haynes 2-yard run, making the lead now 15-7.

Haynes added another touchdown in the third quarter as he scored on a 1-yard run. The Eagles added two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter as Hunter Morley scored on a 7-yard run and later added a 10-yard run putting the Eagles in full control and giving ALA a 36-7 over Carbon.

ALA's Hunter Morley had 15 carries for 124 yards and was 7-of-12 for 108 yards and two interceptions and Brett Haynes rushed for two TDs in the game. The Eagles' defense held Carbon to -9 rushing yards and only 43 total yards in the game, while tallying 363 total yards offensively.

Carbon High Football Coach Jeff Blanc said the team had a good first half overall keeping the score close, especially with the defense buckling down holding the Eagles offense to only 13 points in the half.

The Dinos are now in a must win situation if they want to have a shot at getting into the playoffs. The Dinos (0-3 Region 10, 1-7) must win against Union in their last game of the season on Wednesday night at Carbon High. Blanc said there are a few possibilities for the playoffs that Carbon could play itself into should they win on Wednesday. But first things first, the Dinos must get a victory to continue on, Blanc said.

"It's our last home game and everything depends on it," Blanc said. "All it takes is a win. The game will have two teams (Carbon and Union) that have been going down a similar path during the season. It should be a very hard fought game."

Should they win and get into the playoffs, it would be the first time Carbon High has reached the playoffs in over a decade, Blanc said.
