David Douglas QB Greg Carradine scores three times
Every time Centennial thought it had a chance, David Douglas quarterback Greg Carradine came up with a big play to lift the Scots to a 41-33 win Friday night.
The teams entered the locker rooms tied 13-13, but Carradine quickly put the Scots in front on a pair of long touchdown runs in the third quarter. He gave Douglas a 27-13 lead on a 16-yard touchdown run that ended with him facing three Centennial tacklers on the goal line.
With nowhere left to run, Carradine jumped.
He tumbled over the top of teammate Tyler Sanders and the collection of Eagles to reach the end zone.
'This was a big game, and my team counts on me to make big plays,' Carradine said. 'I was going to do whatever was necessary to score that touchdown.'
Centennial cut the gap to a single touchdown a couple times in the fourth quarter, but never had a chance to tie the game. Their final opportunity was taken away when David Douglas junior Michael Ancheta recovered an onside kick with 56 seconds to play.
Eagles' quarterback Kyle Warner accounted for all five Centennial scores, highlighted by a 40-yard touchdown run on fourth down for a brief 13-7 lead in the first half.
