Boyden Hull/Rock Valley turned it over on downs on their next possession, giving Carroll the ball at their own 24-yard line. The Nightshawks had a big play, getting into Carroll territory on their first play, but wasn’t able to capitalize.

The Nighthawks went three and out late in the 1st quarter, into the 2nd quarter and punted, giving Carroll the ball back with 11:18 left in the 1st half.
