MIDLAND – The Carman- Ainsworth football team improved to 2-0 after a 21-7 win over Midland at Northwood University last Thursday. The game was originally slated to take place at Midland High School but was moved because a lightning strike rendered Midland’s field unusable days before the game.
The Cavs found themselves playing from behind early on after falling behind 7-3 in the first quarter. The second saw a 6-0 scoring advantage for Carman-Ainsworth to take a 9-6 lead headed into the half. After the break, Carman-Ainsworth added six more points each in both the third and fourth quarters to secure the win.
Individual stats were not reported.
This week, Davison, 2-0, comes to town as the Cavs look to defend their home turf for the first time this season. The Cardinals are fresh off a 49-0 trouncing of Bay City Western and will be riding that momentum into tomorrow’s game. Davison has given up just seven points through its first two games of the season, giving the Cavs their biggest test on offense to date. Carman-Ainsworth has not beaten Davison since the 2015 season when it won 21-14. Since then, Davison has won 56-21 and 50-13 in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
The game is slated to kick off tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Carman- Ainsworth Jr. High.
