Carthage topples Kilgore for 4th title in 6 years

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tevin Pipken rushed for 118 yards and a late touchdown to lead Carthage to a 34-23 victory Friday over Kilgore in the Class 3A Division I title game.

Carthage saw an 18-point lead dwindle to 28-23 with 3:40 left in the game at AT&T Stadium. But it recovered an onside kick and kept to the ground to wind down the game. Pipken picked up a key first down early in the drive by breaking a tackle along the left side of the field and capped off the drive with a 24-yard touchdown run with 50 seconds left.

Carthage (15-1) has won state titles in four of the past six years, including three in a row from 2008 to 2010.

Carthage stretched a 14-10 halftime lead into a 28-10 advantage heading into the fourth before Kilgore (14-0) mounted its comeback attempt.

Carthage built the third-quarter lead thanks to two long passes from Blake Bogenschutz.

The Texas-San Antonio recruit hit O'keeron Rutherford down the right sideline for a 51-yard touchdown pass with 6:25 left in the third to make it 21-10. On Carthage's next drive he completed a 49-yard pass to Pipken to set up a 10-yard Terian Goree touchdown run on the next play.

Goree also scored earlier on a 13-yard run to break a 7-7 deadlock with 2:34 left in the first half.

Kilgore's comeback was jump-started when quarterback Benny Colbert took a read option 32 yards on third-and-6 with 11:07 left in the game.

Nearly eight minutes later, Kevrin Justice scored from 1 yard out for his second touchdown of the game. His score, which cut the deficit to 28-23, came three plays after Aaron Foy intercepted Bogenschutz at the Carthage 26.

Kilgore kicker Christian Galvan made a 40-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter to make it 14-10 at half. Less than 90 seconds before, he missed from 41 yards.

Justice ran 21 times for 94 yards, scoring twice for Kilgore.

Bogenschutz was 8 of 18 for 185 yards for Carthage. He rushed 11 times for 100 yards.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
