CARROLLTON — Dominique Carter’s interception with 1:11 remaining helped Carrollton Ranchview seal a 20-14 victory over Glen Rose on Thursday night at Standridge Stadium.
The Wolves’ victory avenged a drubbing at the hands of Glen Rose last year, and it was Carter’s athleticism that helped. Carter finished with 60 yards rushing and one score on the ground, and his 54-yard run on a screen pass late in the first half proved to be the game-winner as Ranchview held on.
Glen Rose got on the board first with just under two minutes to go in the first quarter when quarterback Colton Lane connected with a wide-open Jed Bridges from 8 yards out for a 7-0 lead.
But Ranchview scored on back-to-back possessions in the second quarter to take the lead as running back Raghib Ismail hauled in a 21-yard, over-the-shoulder catch in the end zone from quarterback Keidrien Wadley to pull within 7-6, and Carter’s 24-yard run gave Ranchview a 13-7 lead.
Glen Rose took the lead back on its next possession on an 8-yard run from Kevin Uehlein, but Carter scored on the screen pass shortly before halftime to put Ranchview ahead for good.
Glen Rose’s quarterback duo of Lane and Hayden Holder mustered a mere 119 yards through the air, and the ground game was led by Senovio De la Garza’s 75 rushing yards.
Wadley threw for 159 yards and the two TDs for Ranchview, and Dominque Carter’s brother Davian ran for 40 yards.
