    Rolling along with tough defense and balanced offense, the Carey High School eight-man football team piled up 556 total yards and routed the Castleford Wolves 52-6 Friday in a key Sawtooth Conference West Division clash, at Castleford.
    Panther sophomore Toby Whitworth rushed for a game-high 114 yards and two touchdowns while older brother Matt Whit-worth, a senior, added two rushing TDs after the half to help Carey pull away and stay unbeaten for the year.
    Senior quarterback Nate Adamson (291 all-purpose yards) led the Panthers with 65 rushing yards and 226 passing yards and two TDs on just seven completions. He also intercepted a Wolves pass and made 10 unassisted tackles.
    “We had a solid running game (253 yards) and ground it out with Toby and Matt,” said Carey coach Lane Kirkland. “The kids withstood the test of playing a good team on their Home-coming and tackled hard—it was Panther football. Everybody worked together on both sides of the ball.”
    Castleford (4-3, 2-2 league) scored first, but junior Joe Parke (4 catches, 183 yards) put the Panther offense in motion with a 74-yard pass reception from Adamson on Carey’s first play. Ad-amson’s interception stopped a Castleford drive at the 3-yard-line and Carey was on its way.
    The eight-touchdown win combined with Lighthouse Chris-tian Academy’s 76-36 home victory over Camas County of Fairfield in Twin Falls Friday set up a match-up of unbeaten teams for the Sawtooth West championship.
    That game between Carey (7-0, 4-0) and Lighthouse (7-0, 4-0) is set for Friday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. at Carey’s Derrick Parke Me-morial Field. It is “Senior Night” for five Panthers as well as Lighthouse’s first-ever varsity trip to Carey’s turf.
    Kirkland expects a strong challenge from Lighthouse. He said Lions’ two-time All-State running back and linebacker Adam Taylor—the senior called by Kirkland a “great athlete, great competitor”—broke his arm during Friday’s win over Camas County.
