Hounds fall 26-21

There was no miracle rally this time, but the Greyhounds never stopped trying.

Carver-Atlanta recovered a late onside kick to hold off Jones County 26-21 Friday night in their state quarterfinal game at Grady Stadium. 

The Greyhounds finish the season with an 11-2 record, best in school history. 

Trailing 26-14 with 40 seconds to play, John Walton caught a 40-yard pass from Hunter Costlow, putting the Hounds at the 3. It took three tries, but Costlow finally found DeQueze Fryer for the touchdown, cutting the lead to 26-21 with 14 seconds remaining. 

Jones County tried an onside kick but the Panthers recovered and ran out the clock. They improve to 12-1. 

The Hounds had trouble covering Carver's tall, fast receivers, but they managed to stay within reach until the end. 

Jones County missed a great opportunity in the first quarter with the score tied 7-7 when it got the ball at the 18 on an interception. 

The Hounds drove to the 8 but a bad snap followed by a penalty backed them up, and they missed a 39-yard field goal try. 

Carver responded with an 80-yard touchdown drive to go ahead 14-7 and never trailed again.
