Everybody...welcome in to week two of the fox 14 pressbox..
I'm fox 14 sports director jacob lenard..
It's a really great night of high school football..it's week two in kansas..but we're going to start with some week three action in missouri.
Andi: the joplin eagles are coming off a big time win over the webb city cardinals... last saturday, the eagles topped the cardinals 35-28.
It's joplin's first win over webb city since 1990.
Jacob: tonight, the eagles are right back on the field for another big one..hosting the carthage tigers... both of these teams..are ranked top 5 in the state..
Carthage is number 2 in class 5..joplin..is number 4 in class 6... plenty of points tonight...first drive for carthage..tyler mueller..around the left side..look at the push he gets..crosses the goal line..
It's 7-nothing tigers..
After a quick joplin answer..carthage..insid e the ten..qb patrick carlton with the keeper..
Tough 8 yards for the touchdown..tigers..
Back up 1 4-7..
Same score in the second..joplin going for it on 4th down..kale schrader...flying in to get the sack..
Carthage takes over possession..and they would capitalize..mueller again...his second touchdown of the night..
Pushes the lead to double digits for the first time tonight..
Later in the second quarter...joplins nathan glades...breaks one tackle..then nobody else is going to touch him..42 yards for glades..at that point..its 28-21 carthage..i told you there was plenty of scoring... back to carthage...this is such a nice run..patrick carlton..at the 38..
Look at carlton weaving..breaking tackles..into the end zone for the score..its 35-21..
But you know this joplin offense..under a minute to half...isaiah davis..
Up the middle..
His third touchdown of the half..we go to break..with carthage up 35-28..
First drive of the second half...these two..you know they would connect at least once..tash..to zach westmoreland for the touchdown..this game..all tied up at 35.
It was nuts..but joplin..got a late stop on a two point conversion to beat carthage 56-55.
Jacob: staying in the coc..the neosho wildcats got
