The Carthage Bulldogs, defending 4-A Division II State Champions, held up their #1 state ranking on Friday night as they hosted our Jasper Bulldogs.

Carthage went up 7-0 in the first quarter when they took a gamble on a 4th and 9. It paid off as they took a 73 yard pass play in for a touchdown.

Carthage tacked on 7 more in the first half and 14 more in the second half to win it 28-0.

Jasper, now 1-1 in district, moves into Homecoming Week with the Bonfire planned for sunset on Thursday, and on Friday night we’ll host Shepherd for our Homecoming Game with a 7:30 kickoff.
