Carr runs for 239 yards in Tustin's romp
TUSTIN – Tustin running back KC Carr tormented the Kennedy defense from his first touch of the game, racking up 239 yards rushing and four touchdowns in leading the Tillers to a 49-6 blowout victory over the Fighting Irish in an Empire League game Thursday at Tustin High.
Myron Miller’s patented double-wing offense accounted for 385 yards on the ground, and it even had success through the air as junior quarterback Sagel Simon connected on five of six passes for 105 yards and a score.
Tustin improved to 7-1 overall with its sixth straight victory, and is 3-0 n league.
“We’ve been a one-horse show, and that’s not the way I like to run it,” Miller said of the Tillers offensive attack in recent weeks. “We’ve been running single-wing: one guy back there ... doing everything. No passing. No misdirection. Nothing. Having those other backs get ready to play tonight, we were able to run the real double-wing.”
In Tustin’s last four outings, Carr carried the ball 40, 38, 35 and 44 times. The county’s leading rusher carried the ball 29 times Thursdsay, but Zech Savage and Anthony Herbas helped out with 15 carries for a combined 85 yards.
The Tillers scored on their first four possessions en route to a 30-0 halftime lead. They scored on their only three drives of the second half, and led 43-0.
Kennedy (5-3, 2-1) consistently found itself in third-and-long situations and possessed the ball for just 5:46 in the first half.
