CANTON — Carson High School’s Cougars fought hard but fell to Pisgah, 20-13, Friday night in the opening round of the state 3A football playoffs.

The Black Bears, the No. 2 seed in the West, improved to 11-1. Carson, No. 7 in the Midwest, ends its season at 4-8.

Pisgah took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter on a one-yard plunge by quarterback Tanner Wike at the 7:27 mark, and a 32-yard field goal from kicker Tanner Fox at 3:49.

Coach Joe Pinyan’s Cougars got on the scoreboard in the second period, just 1:18 before halftime. Quarterback Owen White connected on a 26-yard scoring pass to receiver Brendan Westbrook.

Fox added another field goal with 1:50 remaining in the third quarter, this one from 36 yards out.

In the final period, Pisgah took a commanding 20-7 lead at the 11:50 mark, with Wike found running back Justin Davis on an 11-yard scoring pass.
