Titans are tops

Carlson is staggered by Allen Park’s comeback
By Shane Preston
The News-Herald

Jagged edge


Two weeks ago, Carlson was riding high and tied atop the Downriver League standings at 4-0 and Allen Park was reeling at 2-2 after a lopsided to loss to Truman. Things sure have changed in two weeks. The Jags erased a 14point fourth-quarter deficit to win 23-22 and improve to 4-2 while dealing the Marauders their second straight loss, resulting in each team jockeying for playoff positioning in their final three games. Carlson led 22-8 with less than six minutes remaining, but the Jags went on a 15-point run late to secure the important one-point victory.

The run began on a Marauder miscue when an attempted Carlson punt saw the long snap go through the end zone for a safety. The Jags marched down the field following the punt kickoff and made it 22-17 after a one-yard touchdown run by Jake Makowski. After Allen Park lineman David DeLuca acrobatically recovered the onside kick, Nick Fulton found Jake Barann for a three-yard touchdown pass and a 23-22 Jaguar lead. “Everything had to go right and it seemed to,” Allen Park Coach Tom Hoover said. “We were marred with mistakes all night, but with five minutes to go, we didn’t make any.” Carlson built its lead

With a great last-minute effort Friday, Kennedy rallied to hang a 7-3 loss on the Lincoln Park Railsplitters. Kennedy’s Kevin Harris blocked a Lincoln Park punt and Tristan Simmons ran the ball back for a touchdown. The points were the only ones of the game for Kennedy and the victory was the Eagles’ their first of the season. For Lincoln Park, the nightmare continued. The Railsplitters now own a 58game losing streak. Down 0-3 with 4:24 left in the game, Kennedy knew its time was running out. “They did not want to be the ones to lose to Lincoln Park,” Kennedy Coach Paul

Nappo said. “And at the same time they wanted to win a football game.” After Harris blocked the punt, Simmons recovered it and took the ball back 44 yards to score the touchdown. The score was Simmons’ first touchdown ever and he was thrilled with the sudden change of the game. “I told my middle linebacker to shoot the ‘a’ gap and try to block the punt,” Simmons said. “I saw no one around me, I scooped, and scored. The ball was right there, laid out perfectly.” Kennedy had a scoring chance earlier in the game when Simmons had a long fumble return called back after it was ruled that the Lincoln Park ball carrier
