PULASKI, Va. -

Former Pulaski County assistant Tom Hale returned to Kenneth Dobson Stadium on Friday night with his Carroll County Cavaliers.

The Cougars were without quarterback Marcus Johnston. He sprained his ankle on Pulaski's second possession.

We pick things up in the third quarter with Pulaski leading 10-3. The Cougars' Quincy Rollins busted out a long run, bringing the ball down to the 42.

A few plays later, Pulaski handed it off to Brandon Jacobs. That was a good decision. Jacobs took it 42 yards to the house. Extra-point was good. Pulaski led 17-3 with 3:41 left in the 3rd.

Fourth quarter now. Pulaski lined up to punt. But a bad snap foiled those plans. The punter fell on it, giving Carroll County the ball on its own 23.

Two plays later with the ball on the 3-yard-line, Carroll County was trying to cash in. But they fumbled the handoff. Pulaski recovered to end the threat.

Later in the same possession, backup quarterback Jesse Draper called his own number. He brought it all the way to the house. Pulaski piled up 450 yards of offense. The Cougars cruised past Carroll County, 24-3.
