Carver-Montgomery 41, Smiths Station 10: Panthers fall on the road

October 20, 2012 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Carver quarterback Jeremy Johnson's three touchdown passes gives the Wolverines a 20-3 halftime lead over the Smiths Station Panthers en route to a 41-10 victory at the Cramton Bowl on Friday night.

After the Wolverines' defense forced a three-and-out to open the game, Johnson connected on his first pass for a touchdown. He hit running back Harvey Harris on a screen pass and Harris weaved his way 66 yards for the score to go up 6-0.

Later in the first quarter Johnson marched the Wolverines 55 yards in 7 plays for another touchdown. He finished the drive with an 8-yard toss to a wide open Melvin Tyus in the back-left corner of the end zone to go up 13-0.

The Panthers responded in the ensuing drive. Aided by an offsides penalty and a face mask by the Wolverines, the Panthers moved the ball down to the Wolverines' 8-yard line but had to settle for a 26-yard field goal by Harrison Jones, making the score 13-3.

The Wolverines answered quickly, again scoring on the first play of the drive. Johnson hit Landy Capetillo with a bomb down the right sideline for a 70-yard touchdown and went up 20-3 with 8:43 left in the half.

After bobbling the kickoff, the Panthers started their next drive from the 6-yard line. Smiths Station converted two fourth downs on a 21-play drive and got as close as the 20-yard line but came up empty as the clock hit zero.
