Bishop Carroll vs North Recap

It was an all-around effort for Coach Trail’s Golden Eagles (ranked 5th by MaxPreps) on Thursday night against the North Redskins (ranked 31st by MaxPreps). The defense was able to continue its dominant mid-season stretch, keeping the Pioneers offense out of the end zone except for a rushing touchdown late in the contest. The defense was also able to get off the field quickly, giving the offense excellent field position throughout the contest, which allowed for BC to bounce out to a large first half lead. These factors, along with the first kick return touchdown of the season for the Golden Eagles, helped Carroll take down the North Redskins. Final Score: 46-6

Golden Eagles Offense:
The Golden Eagles were able to consistently take advantage of the opportunities presented to them against the Redskins. The connection between Max Bullinger (TE) and Aiden Niedens (QB) continues to grow as they were able to connect for the first touchdown of the game early in the first quarter. Hunter Trail (RB) looked especially sharp this week, able to weave his way through the second level of defenders, resulting in two rushing touchdowns on the night. The Golden Eagles running game was able to rally up 171 total rushing yards throughout the course of the night. Niedens also looked especially solid and sharp this week, being able to tally 102 yards through the air. He was also able to spread the ball around to his weapons, resulting in two touchdowns.

Golden Eagles Defense/Special Teams:
The special teams unit for the Golden Eagles was finally able to show what it is capable of, producing two touchdowns on the day. The defense was able to consistently get into the Redskins backfield. The defense was also able to produce one turnover, giving all of the momentum to the Golden Eagles.

It was a long game for the Redskins on Thursday night. Their defense was not able to put up a substantial fight against the Golden Eagle offense. But the one bright spot for the Redskins was the performance put on by Joe Williams (RB). He was able to compile 120 rushing yards on 20 carries, along with a fourth-quarter touchdown.

Looking Forward:
The Golden Eagles will look to continue their winning streak against the South Titans (ranked 26th by MaxPreps) this week. In order to come away with a victory this week, the defense will need to contain the Titans’ dual threat quarterback Jashun Grant. If BC does this, then they should make easy work of the Titans, advancing the win streak to four heading into the playoffs.
