The Carbon High School football team opened Region 12 play with a 41-7 home loss against Delta on Friday night.
The loss was CarbonвЂ™s first of the season.
The Dinos only touchdown came on a 15-yard pass from Dakota Cisneros to Nick Haycock. The touchdown made the score 14-7 before Delta rattled off 27 straight points over the final two-and-a-half quarters.
вЂњWe played hard, but DeltaвЂ™s a good football team,вЂќ Carbon assistant coach Jeff Cisneros said. вЂњBut weвЂ™re going to bounce back. This will be a good test for the kids to see what kind of character they have.вЂќ
Cisneros said the coaching staff and team would use the loss as an inspiration to get better.
вЂњThis might have been the worst thing that could have happened for North Sanpete,вЂќ Cisneros said. вЂњFor us to get handled like that, our boys will bounce back and be ready to play. WeвЂ™ve got a couple bumps and bruises that have to heal, but youвЂ™ll see our guys bounce back.вЂќ
Carbon will try to get back on the winning track on Friday at North Sanpete.
