Mansfield Wolverines Play Against Carroll Bulldogs

By Antwone Jacobs

Coming off of a 49-12 victory over the Huntington Raiders, Friday Coach Mike Green and the Mansfield Wolverines (1-1) football team hosted the Carroll Bulldogs (1- 1). The Wolverines took to the field without starting quarterback LaKendrick Ross. He is recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered during last week's game late in the first half. He probably miss 2-4 weeks. Mansfield was also without starting receiver Jamal Jackson after he injured his thumb in the same game. Despite losing two starters, the Wolverines fought hard but fell to the Bulldogs 26-18.

The game was much closer than the final score would indicate. The teams traded scores for most of the game but the Wolverines could not stop the Bulldogs rushing attack allowing a total of 186 yards and 3 touchdowns. Mansfield trailed 20- 18 at halftime.
