Salina South Recap
In Friday’s Sectional Matchup, the Bishop Carroll Golden Eagles took on the Salina South Cougars looking to advance to the State Semifinals for Class 5A. Bishop Carroll scored first on a 1-yard run by junior quarterback Colton Howell. However, the excitement didn’t last long for the Eagles, who never led the game again after a couple of Salina South touchdowns. Bishop Carroll came within two points on a 77-yard drive; however, after missing the 2-point conversion and a failed onside kick attempt, the 2-point deficit seemed to be too much to conquer. The Eagles went on to lose 21-19 to the Cougars, ending their 23-game winning streak. Tears ran down the faces of many players, including the senior class, who ended their high school careers with a 23-1 record in the past 2 years. The Golden Eagles ended their season 10-1, with City League Champions, District Champions, and Regional Champions titles under their belts. Great season and congratulations to the Bishop Carroll Golden Eagle’s Football team!
Season in Review
Coming off an undefeated state championship run in 2012, the 2013 Bishop Carroll Golden Eagles hoped to have the same fate this season. The Golden Eagles started off their great run going undefeated in the regular season, a feat only done 3 times in Bishop Carroll history. The Bishop Carroll Golden Eagles defeated their cross town rivals, the Kapaun Mt. Carmel Crusaders, 42-10 to clinch the City League Title. Starting off district with wins against Eisenhower and Goddard, the Eagles traveled to Liberal and kept their district record flawless, defeating the Liberal Redskins 53-19. With the win, they clinched their District title, defeating their 3 opponents in district play 157 to 40. Starting the playoffs off with a win against the Newton Railers, the Golden Eagles played host to the Salina South Cougars in hopes of repeating another Cougar victory, similar to last year. The Eagles lost to the Cougars, falling short in the 19-21 loss, and ended their season with a 10-1 record. The Bishop Carroll Golden Eagles went 24-1 in the past two seasons, with many of their 25 seniors playing a large role in both impressive seasons. So thank you to the players and coaches that made this season so great and congratulations on yet an amazing season!
