The Carrollton Hawks might have lost their first game of the season against Camp Point Central, but they have been all business since then, now sporting a 7-1 record after Saturday’s decisive win over Unity-Seymour 55-27.
The Hawks got on the board early, scoring on their first possession. Quarterback Grant Pohlman, on a quarterback keeper, took the ball into the endzone from 19 yards out to put the Hawks on the board first.
Unity would get their first score on a Pohlman interception at the Carrollton 18-yard line. The failed two-point conversion left Carrollton still in the lead.
Carrollton came back with two more touchdown throws from Pohlman – one to Kyle Leonard and one to Gus Coonrod to make the score 21-6 with a little over 7 minutes left to go in the second quarter.
Unity found their second wind, however, scoring two touchdowns to cut the lead to just one, 21-20 going into the half.
To start the third quarter, Pohlman took the ball in himself to increase the lead to 28-20.
Unity couldn’t find the endzone while Carrollton continued to add to it’s lead. Pohlman connected with Leonard on a 36-yard pass and after a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was added on, the Hawks found themselves on Unity’s 13-yard line. Pohlman connected with Hayden Flowers who took it in for the score making it 35-20.
Pohlman then connected with Leonard on a 43-yard missile leading to another score putting Carrollton up 42-20 with less than a minute to go in the third quarter.
Carrollton would score two more times in the fourth quarter. Once on a pass from Pohlman to Coonrod and then on an interception by Leonard who took it 45 yards for a touchdown with just under five minutes left in the game.
Unity would score one more time on a 70-yard run to make the final score 55-27.
