HILLSVILLE -- Carroll County’s first team offense scored on every possession and the Cavaliers remained undefeated in the Southwest District with a convincing 42-14 Southwest District victory Friday over Grundy at Tommy Thompson Field. It took Carroll County (6-2 overall, 4-0 SWD) just 23 plays to score five touchdowns on its first five possessions. Five different Cavaliers scored touchdowns, including Ulisis Moreno, who had a pair of TD runs in the second half and who was perfect on six PAT opportunities. Carroll County had at least one big play on every scoring drive, three of which started in Grundy territory. Zack Surratt opened the scoring for Carroll County with a 46-yard run late in the first quarter, but Grundy knotted the game at 7-7 on Tyler Berglowe’s 15-yard run midway through the second period. Carroll County closed the half with two touchdowns in the final 3:54 to begin pulling away. Quarterback Blake Bowman scored on a 12-yard run at the 3:54 mark of the period, and connected with wideout Tyler Reavis on a 38-yard scoring toss with 1:01 left in the half. Carroll County tacked on three third-period scores, the first two from Moreno on runs of 43 yards and 1 yard. Ayers capped Carroll County’s scoring with an 8-yard touchdown just before the end of the third quarter, putting the Cavaliers ahead 42-7. Ayers led the Cavalier rushing attack with 92 yards on just four carries, and Surratt added 89 yards on five attempts. Moreno chipped in with 54 yards on five carries. John Kelly threw for 114 yards and a touchdown for the Golden Wave. Kelly tossed a 24-yard TD pass to Ben Rife with 47 seconds remaining in the contest. Berglowe ran for 123 yards and a touchdown for Grundy (4-4 0-4), which dropped its 23rd consecutive Southwest District game after opening the season 4-0. Carroll County’s win sets up a huge matchup with Richlands (7-1, 4-0). The two teams will meet with the Southwest District lead on the line this Friday.   Grundy                 0     7   0   7––14 Carroll County    7  14  21  0––42
