Du Quoin Wins Battle of First


By WSIL Sports

DU QUOIN-- Du Quoin and Carterville entered the night tied for first in the Mississippi, but one would take sole possession of the top spot with a win. Shane Baxter gave the Indians a 14-6 halftime lead, after a score just before the break.

Early in the second half, it looked like the Indians would take control for good, leading 21-6, but Carterville mounted a number of comebacks. The Lions closed to within eight points in the fourth, but a Travis Chapman touchdown reception sealed it.

Du Quoin remains unbeaten in the River-to-River Mississippi and improves to 4-2 on the season, while Carterville falls to 2-1 in conference and 3-3 overall.
