The Carroll County football Panthers were no match for a determined Christian Academy of Louisville on Friday, tumbling 44-6 for their second loss in as many weeks in Carrollton.

The home turf was drenched by a heavy downpour that prevailed throughout the game. Panther Field, normally friendly territory for the local squad, was muddy and slick, almost alien to the Panthers as they slogged their way to one touchdown late in the first half for their only score of the game.

Carroll County managed 127 yards on the ground. Zach Wise carried 18 times for a net total of 76 yards. Andy Sisenstein had 11 carries for 31 yards and scored Carroll’s lone touchdown with 3:11 minutes remaining in the second quarter. Carson Butcher garnered 20 yards in eight carries for the Panthers.

Carroll managed to pick up 39 yards in the air as quarterback Trent Downs found Sisenstein three times for 28 yards. DC Craig had one reception for six yards. D’Anthony Collins had a catch for five yards.

The Panthers were very much in the game at halftime, trailing only 14-6. The Centurians’ ability to control field position in the second half proved to be Carroll’s undoing.

Carroll, 5-2, will travel to Owen County Friday with hopes of returning to the winning form they displayed early in the season.
