Coming out of the bye week, the Carroll County Panthers suffered a disappointing loss Friday night to district rival Owen County (4-4). The Panthers (3-5) lost on the road, 30-18.
Head coach Lee Downey said he felt very strongly that they let a win slip away. “In the second half, we let them get to us emotionally, and they outplayed us physically,” he said. “Our players knew some of their players, and, as it always goes, a lot of discussion prior to the game going on. I think it actually helped them out.”
