The Carbon High Football team used late interceptions and a furious offensive rally to overtake the Union Cougars in Roosevelt on Friday night.
Daulton NelsonвЂ™s 8-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter put Carbon ahead to stay with only a few minutes remaining on the clock. Carbon escaped with a 17-13 victory, dashing UnionвЂ™s hopes of a Homecoming Game victory.
вЂњLast year we set a goal to turn things around at Carbon,вЂќ Dino head coach Jeff Blanc said. вЂњWe are a band of brothers and play that way out on the field.вЂќ
According to the Deseret News website, Carbon is 4-0 for the first time since 1951.
The Dinos led 10-7 after the first quarter thanks to a 25-yard field goal from Tanner Gagnon and an 11-yard touchdown pass from Dakota Cisneros to Nick Haycock.
Union took a 13-10 lead in the third quarter on a JJ Morley touchdown run, and the score stayed that way until CarbonвЂ™s impressive drive that put the game away.
Carbon will be idle this week as they prepare to host Delta Sept. 23. The game will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. on ETV Channel 10.
