Big I rallies after shaky start

[singlepic=160,240,160,,right]Independence (3-0) got off to a rocky start Friday against Vance. Quarterback Anthony Carrothers completed only one of his first six passes as the Patriots failed to score on the opening drive for the first time this year.
“We just weren’t on the same page,” head coach Tom Knotts said. “We just kept perservering, and the defense stopped them.”
The Patriots and Carrothers rallied after an interception by defensive back Breon Thornton on the Vance 1. The Big I marched down the field in eight plays on the ensuing drive, scored its first touchdown of the night and never looked back.

Patriots quiet Lions’ roar

Lawrence Martin owned the night. Martin caught six passes for 211 yards, two touchdowns and he threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to tight end Sebastian Green on a wide receiver pass. Head coach Tom Knotts said Martin also wasn’t too shabby on defense.
“We have to use him both ways, and he probably is one of the top five players in Charlotte,” he said. “It’s hard to play both ways, and that’s what we’re trying to do.”
