Marvin Ridge defeated Porter Ridge 35-13 giving the Mavs their third straight win of the season.
I arrived at halftime with Marvin Ridge nursing an eight-point lead.
It didn’t take long for me to capture highlights thanks to the Mavericks sophomore running back, Jacob Carroll, who opened up the second half scoring with a 41-yard burst into the end zone. The Carroll touchdown run gave Marvin Ridge a 28-13 lead.
A few minutes later in the third, Carroll busted another big impressive run through the Porter Ridge defense.
The victory puts Marvin Ridge at 3-3 for the season heading into a bye week before jumping into conference play in two weeks versus Cuthbertson.
Carroll and Marvin Ridge head coach, Aubrey Carter, discuss the win.
