Week 7 preview: Louisville at Carrollton

Updated: Thursday, October 4, 2012

TIME  7 p.m.
SITE  Community Field
RECORDS  Louisville 4-2, 2-1; Carrollton 4-2, 1-2
LAST WEEK  Louisville 13, Alliance 8; Marlington 34, Carrollton 14
LAST MEETING  Louisville won 43-7 last year.
WHAT TO WATCH  Head coach John DeMarco said the Leopards still are waiting to hear the extent of quarterback Joey Duckworth’s knee injury, so his status remains uncertain. Duckworth was injured during the second quarter of last week’s win over Alliance. Jeremy McQuilkin took over and completed 8 of 10 passes for 54 yards, including a 12-yard TD pass to Trent Ohman. Ohman provided the winning margin for Louisville in the fourth quarter when he returned a punt 88 yards for a score. An absence of Duckworth over any period of time hurts the Leopards, because he also leads them in rushing. Having lost two in a row after a 4-0 start, the Warriors are experiencing their first taste of adversity this season. A Carrollton offense which has produced 240 yards rushing a game was held to just 80 yards on the ground by Marlington. QB Zade Deitz’s 80-yard TD pass to Lynk Tranter last week was his longest completion of the season.
