  • Panthers fall in playoffs to Juggernauts, 34-20

    Three first-half turnovers were too much to overcome for the Carroll County football Panthers as they lost 34-20 to Lloyd Memorial in the opening round of the Class 2A playoffs Friday at Lloyd Memorial High School in Erlanger.

    “We played good, but we could have played a lot better,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “I think the turnovers probably was the difference in the game. … We were not coming here for a moral victory; we came here to win. It was a tough loss, but I’m proud of the team and how hard they fought.”

    Weather was a factor in Friday night’s game, contributing to five total fumbles, three by Carroll and two by Dayton.
