(Atlantic) Atlantic scored a big win in Class 3A District 1 football friday night when they beat Carroll 41-26. The Trojans improved to 3-5 this season and handed 6-2 Carroll their second loss in as many weeks. Sophomore running back Jacobs Dvorak picked up over 100 yards on the ground while junior running back Harrison Hoegh threw for over 200 and had three touchdowns. Juniors Sam Markham caught seven passes for 99 yards and a TD.
Atlantic will take on Red Oak to close out the regular season next week. The Trojans playoff hoped remain alive, but they will need some help from Winterset to get in. It was the first time under head coach Tim Duff that Atlantic had beaten a team with a winning record.
