  • Groves, McMahan connect for game-winning TD

    Border rivals Carroll and Trimble County battled for a final playoff berth in their annual football matchup Friday. The contest wasn’t decided until the final seconds as the Panthers clawed their way to a 19-12 victory, scoring the winning touchdown with only 24 seconds remaining in regulation play.

    Trimble’s Raiders, having won only one game during the season, were playing their final game of the regular season so the game was a “do or die” contest for them. Win and you live to play another day; lose and the season goes into the history books.
