CARBON HILL — Carbon Hill dropped its sixth straight Friday night, losing 60-0 to Calera.

The Bulldogs received the ball first, but gave it away on a fumble at their own 13-yard line where Daillon Kennedy picked it up and carried it into the end zone. After forcing Carbon Hill to go three and out, the Eagles went to work at the Bulldog 48-yard line. Zachary Reneau completed three passes to get them to the 20, where Ronnie Clark busted open a long touchdown run, bringing the score to 14-0. When Carbon Hill punted after another three and out, Clark returned the ball from his own 48-yard line for another touchdown. The extra point was missed, leaving the score at 20-0.

The Eagles would then score three touchdowns in a little over three minutes of game time. Sam Adams ran it into the endzone from 29 yards out. After a Bulldog fumble, Shakeith Tyes took the option pitch for a score. And Reneau completed a 31 yard touchdown pass to Jordan Bishop. After a missed extra point, the score was 40-0.

With 6:33 left in the first half, Reneau hit Sean Johnson from his own 41-yard line for another score. Carbon Hill's Tyler Kirkland fumbled the ball on the following possession. Tyes rushed for 32 yards on the ensuing Eagle drive, including a 16-yard run for a touchdown making the halftime score 54-0.

Calera got the ball to start the second half. A holding call against the Eagles forced them into a 2nd and 20. It didn't affect John Killingsworth, as he capped off the evening's scoring with a 49-yard touchdown run with 5:50 left in the third quarter. Another missed extra point gave Calera a 60-0 lead.

Carbon Hill's best field position of the night came off a fumbled snap by punter Evan Gray early in the fourth quarter. From the Calera 20-yard line, Steven Simerly dropped the pitch and gave the ball back to the Eagles.

Calera gained 260 rushing yards to Carbon Hill's 47. Calera's two quarterbacks passed for a combined total of 136 yards.

Daniel Woodard went 4 for 6 passing for 23 yards.

Next week, Calera (5-1, 4-1) hosts Bibb County.

Carbon Hill (0-6, 0-4) goes on the road to West Blocton.
