Unbeaten Panthers open title defense Saturday

North Gem Cowboys due in Carey

Reigning State 1A Division 2 eight-man football champion Carey High School takes the first step in its title defense by hosting Sawtooth Conference South runner-up North Gem of Bancroft (4-5) on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. at Derrick Parke Memorial Field in Carey.

Sawtooth North Division king Carey has won 16 consecutive games over two seasons and defeated North Gem 54-6 at Bancroft on Sept. 30. The Panthers are averaging 50.0 ppg in nine contests and have yielded only six touchdowns all season.

One of Carey's hottest players is junior quarterback Jordan Dilworth.

In the 56-0 home win over North Valley Academy Patriots on Oct. 27 on the Carey gridiron, Dilworth (9-for-12, 183 yards) threw five touchdown passes in the first quarter alone. Carey (9-0) posted its fifth shutout of the fall. In the last two games, Dilworth is 17-for-22 for 436 yards and eight TD passes.

If Carey is able to keep its winning streak alive over North Gem Saturday, the Panthers will advance into the semi-finals against the winner of Friday's game between South Division winner Castleford (7-2) and North Division runner-up Dietrich (5-3).

That semi-final game will be played either Nov. 11 or 12 at Holt Arena in Pocatello, Carey athletic director Lee Cook said.
