Blake Carr leads Clyde past Shallowater in secod-round playoff game

Just when it appeared Clyde was going to put Shallowater away, Blake Carr made a mistake that let the Mustangs back in it.

The Clyde quarterback, about to be sacked on a first-and-10 play at the Shallowater 12-yard line, just threw the ball away in desperation and into the hands of a player with the wrong color jersey.

Rylen Bradford returned the interception 90 yards for a touchdown – and just like that it was a one-score game with 8:56 left in the Region I-3A Division I area playoff game Saturday at Shotwell Stadium.

“I knew I should have just gone down with it,” said Carr, who was determined to make amends for the mistake. “We had been moving the ball on them. I knew we were going to be able to go down the field and score on them. I knew we were fine.”

That they were. The quarterback engineered an eight-play, 77-yard scoring drive. Fabian Gomez finished it off with a 24-yard touchdown that proved to be the game-winner in a 26-21 victory over the Mustangs.

Clyde converted two third-down plays on the drive. Carr threw a 9-yard pass to Kendrick Johnson on third-and-5 at the Bulldog 46, and Carr ran 4 yards on third-and-3 from the Shallowater 28 – one play before Gomez’s TD.

It didn’t surprise Clyde coach Danny Dudgeon. He knew as soon as Carr threw the pick-six that Carr would atone for the mistake

“(I knew) that Blake Carr is fixing to have to put us on his back and go to work – and he did just that,” Dudgeon said. “We knew it wasn’t a good decision by him, but we ask so much of that kid. You’re going to live with the decisions he makes.”
