Carbon fans are used to seeing the likes scores of 41-2, they are just not used to seeing them in favor of their Dinos. For the third straight week Carbon took the win, this time over Ben Lomond and they did it in a commanding fashion. It was 1983 when the Dinos last opened their season with three straight wins.

Carbon opened the game with a three and out drive, and then held Ben Lomond to the same thing. The second Dinos drive was stalling when Ben Lomond committed a 15 yard face mask penalty. With new life Carbon sent Tanner Gagnon in for a touchdown just moments into the second quarter. He followed with the point after.

On the ensuing Ben Lomond possession they fumbled and Dino Tash Zmuda recovered. Dakota Cisneros was able to punch it in on an eight yard run and the extra point by Gagnon was good. Carbon was up 14-0. Before the half was over Daulton Nelson ran it in and Gagnon hit a field goal. Nick Haycock and Garrett Nelson also scored to make it 38-0 late in the second.

Ben Lomond ended the half on a passing drive down the field. It looked like they might score, but Carbon reached deep and put on a great goal line stand to stop them as time ran out.

It was mostly a defensive effort from both teams in the second half of play. Carbon's defense continued to force turnovers. In the fourth quarter of play, Gagnon hit another field goal after the Dinos forced yet another turnover.

In the final minutes of play the younger players took over for the Dinos on the field. Deep in their own territory quarterback Zac Hathaway lost a snap and got tackled in the end zone for a safety and the only points Ben Lomond could get on the board.

Again Ben Lomond tried to march down the field in the waning minutes of the game only to have the Dino's Garrett Blanc intercept them as the clock ticked to zero.

"This was probably the best performance I have seen in years from our team," remarked coach Coach Jeff Blanc right after the game. "I am proud of these kids. We forced many turnovers and interceptions and then capitalized on them. It was a great effort and I'll tell you one thing this is not even our best yet. We are going to work hard and prepare for Union this week and just keep going."
