Carr speeds away as Washington rolls over Dubuque Senior

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- While no one should have been surprised by the outcome, the play of one guy in the first quarter still should have left many in awe.

It was the Alex Carr show at Kingston Stadium in Cedar Rapids Friday night as Carr racked up five touchdowns and more than 200 all-purpose yards in just the first quarter.

Carr got it rolling on the first offensive play of the game after the Rams kicked off to the Warriors.  Carr took the handoff at the 20 yard line and after not finding an opening on the left side of the line, he cut back right, turned the corner and hit another gear as he sped 80-yards for the score.  It was 6 to 0 Warriors after the missed extra point.

Then, after the Rams are forced to punt the ball away, Carr gets the call again from 13-yards out, he scores easily to make it 13-0 Warriors.

Carr wasn't done.  This time he scores on a 59-yard pass from A.J. Puk and now it's 20 to nothing.

Carr would score the next two touchdowns for the Warriors to put them up 34 to nothing with time still left to go in the first quarter.

With just three seconds left to go in the quarter, Rams punt the ball again.  This time Brandon Besong gets it, and after some weaving through traffic, he finds the end zone 86-yards later and the first quarter ends with Cedar Rapids Washington up 41-0.

Coach Tony Lombardi said he hated to pull Carr after just one quarter, but it was something he felt he had to do.

Carr ended his night with 142 yards rushing, 59 yards receiving and 10 yards on one punt return for 211 total yards.

Washington led 55-0 at half and went on to win 62-7.

Washington improved their record to 5-0 while the Rams fall to 0-5.

The Warriors will host Iowa City High on Thursday night at Kingston Stadium in a battle of unbeaten's, while things don't get any easier for Dubuque Senior, as they host undefeated Linn-Mar on Friday night.
