Independence started off the game with four turnovers in the first half but still held off West Charlotte Friday night.

Anthony Carrothers threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball in the first half. Kierre Brown also fumbled a punt return late in the second quarter. Despite the Patriot’s giveaways, West Charlotte was still shutout in the first half. Penalties were tacked on to each interception and the Lion’s offense stalled both times. “We need to be creating turnovers, we just haven’t been playing responsible and defensive football tonight.” said head coach Tom Knotts.

The Patriots limited running back Jalen “Scoot” Simmons and the West Charlotte offense to 169 yards, including 104 on the ground. Independence’s offense ended up with 450 yards for the night.

He ran for 125 yards Friday night, 92 of which came in the first half. “He runs hard,”said Knotts.”He reminds me of Brian Knuckles back when I was at West Charlotte in the early ’90s.” […]
