Carroll County more than doubled its offensive output for the first two games of the season Friday with 28 points, but it was not enough to counter an offensive explosion by Christiansburg.

De’Quan Green-Gause and Joey Augustin combined to rush for 295 yards and six touchdowns as the Blue Demons held off a strong charge by Carroll County (0-3) in Christiansburg. The Cavs had scored just 19 points in the first two games, losses to Bassett and Mount Airy, N.C.

The Cavaliers hung tight for most of the game and could have made it closer if not for a couple of critical dropped passes that could have easily went for scores. Carroll trailed just 7-6 at the end of the first quarter against undefeated Christiansburg (3-0) as Green-Gause scored his first touchdown on a 25 yard run.

The Cavaliers answered as Connor Lundy, who completed 21-of-39 passes for 289 yards, hooked up with Duncan Reece on a 17-yard touchdown pass. The extra point, failed, however, leaving Carroll down 7-6 after one quarter.

The Blue Demons seemingly took control by answering with three consecutive touchdowns to open the second quarter. Green-Gause added a 10-yard scoring run before Mack Muldoon’s 3-yard run and a 50-yard touchdown jaunt by Augustin put the Blue Demons up 27-6.

Carroll County was able to stay in the game with a score late in the first half, however, as fullback Jake Dillon plunged into the end zone from a yard out. The Cavs trimmed the deficit to 27-14 as Josh Underwood reeled in a 2-point conversion pass from Lundy.

Green-Gause’s third touchdown of the game, a 10-yard run, increased Christiansburg’s lead to 34-14 at the half.

The Blue Demons capitalized on that momentum to start the third quarter as Augustin added a 9-yard scoring scamper to put the Blue Demons ahead by 27 points. Lundy answered with a 1-yard score on a quarterback sneak, however, and Chase Goins’ extra point brought the Cavs back to within 41-21 heading into the fourth quarter.

Green-Gause put things away early in the final period with an 82-yard touchdown run. Teammate Kory Hendricks tacked on a 52-yard score on the ground to up the Christiansburg margin to 55-21. Carroll’s Kody Alley provided the final touchdown as he ran in from two yards out. Goins’ extra point made the final score 55-28.

Senior receiver Chris Smoot led the Cavaliers’ aerial attack as he hauled in nine passes for 131 yards. Carroll County will have a bye week this Friday before traveling to Grayson County (3-0) on Sept. 21.
