Carbon Elite rumbles to lopsided win over Vernal
Call it a perfect response to a tough loss one week ago.
Whatever you want to call it, the Carbon Elite football team shook off a loss last weekend as they went on the road to defeat a team from Vernal 78-0 on Saturday morning. Carbon Elite head coach Steve Woodhouse said a game under the lights was scheduled on Friday night against Roosevelt, but the game was cancelled at the last moment. Despite all of the schedule changes, Woodhouse said the team responded well as they executed on both sides of the ball. The offense gained over 700 yards of offense and the defense completed a shut out allowing the Vernal offense only three first downs the whole game.
Carbon Elite, 2-1 overall, will now prepare to travel to the Border Wars tournament. Carbon is scheduled to play South Ogden on Friday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. at Jordan High School. Carbon is guarenteed to play at least two games but any further depends on how they fare against the competition.
