West Carter brought home their third win of the season on Friday, with a 26-20 victory over the Shelby Valley Wildcats. 

Quarterback Eli Estepp (18) threw two touchdown passes in the game, with six total completions on 13 attempts, for 172 yards. 

Jackson Bond (22) caught one of those touchdown passes, and had four total receptions for 137 yards. Blake McGlone (32) caught the other, on a 22-yard pass from Estepp. The rest of Estepp’s passing yardage was to Same Jones (16), with 13 yards gained on his reception. 

Jones was also able to force, and recover, one fumble. 

The other two touchdowns, and the Comet’s two-point conversion – their only points after touchdown – were scored by Cole Crampton (5). 

Crampton rushed for a total of 150 yards on the night, followed by McGlone, with four yards, and Cade Oppenheimer (1) with three yards gained. 

On defense, Isaac Bond (33) had six solo tackles and 10 assists. Conner Greene (34) has three solos and 10 assists. Jones (16) has five solo tackles and two assists. Preston Nauman (77) had one tackle and five assists. Gavin Adams (64) had one tackle and four assists. McGlone (32) had two tackles and two assists. Oppenheimer (1) had one solo tackle and three assists. Neil Lusher (4) had two and two. Bradyn Flener (10) had two solo tackles and one assist. Jackson Kidwell (70) had three assisted tackles. Samuel Rayburn (51) had one each. And Jake Barker (25) had one assisted tackle. 

This win is another rebound for the Comets, who came off wins against Fleming County and East Carter to lose to Raceland at home September 17. Their next game is also at home, against Bath County, on October 1, kickoff at 7:30 p.m. 

At East Carter, the Raiders planned match last week against Lawrence County was cancelled pursuant to the KHSAA COVID Cancelation policy. The Raiders next game is scheduled for October 1, at Estill County.
