Devils use big plays to trip East


Oct. 24, 2012 —

“That’s a lack of discipline on our front seven,” Moore said. “Never one time did we tell them to take for granted Russell High School is going to throw the football. We had guys on the back end assigned to different zones or whatever we were playing.

“What it was, was a complete lack of execution and discipline on our defensive tackle’s part. He got trapped and they creased us.”

East Carter (1-8) had many chances to stay in the game, including times when the Raiders easily moved the ball into Red Devils’ territory.

But Moore could only watch as three fumbled snaps, including one that led to a sack that cost East Carter nine yards, eventually costing the Raiders points. 

“That’s been a characteristic of ours all year is that we could not handle success on the field very well,” Moore said. “We drove the ball well tonight...Russell is such a solid football team they don’t need your help to beat you and we definitely did our best offensively, with those fumbled snaps.”

Raiders’ senior fullback Cade Stidham rushed for 106 yards on 19 carries while Chase Steele scored the only East Carter touchdown with a 15-yard run late in the fourth quarter.

East Carter will miss the playoffs, taking only one win in the district this season.
