Carmel and Lawrence Central clash in scrimmage

Human Interest

The defending State runner-up Lawrence Central Bears started their attempt to return to Lucas Oil Stadium Friday night, and to begin the quest, they met a team hoping to vie for the same road.

The Bears hosted the Carmel Greyhounds Friday night in a scrimmage that had both teams showing off their strengths.

Lawrence Central showed off their muscle in the first round of series, which involved both teams getting fifteen plays to score as many times as possible. The Bears kept Carmel out of the end zone the first go around, and then Dre Townsend found Anthony Shelman on a forty yard route for the score.

It wouldn't take long for the Greyhounds to get revenge though.

On the following series, which involved both teams getting ten chances to score from ten yards out, Carmel kept Lawrence Central scoreless. Then with the ball in their hands, they put on an offensive clinic.

Jalen Duncan scored twice from just a minimal of yards out, and then Senior quarterback Brandon Denning found Devin Cook for the third score of the series.

Both squads continued to scrimmage throughout the rest of the night, but the real games start next Friday. Carmel will open up their season at Columbus North, while the Bears are also on the road to Lawrence North.
