The Carrollton High School junior-varsity football team battled through a see-saw affair against Westlake on Thursday night in a matchup that actually ended in a 20-20 deadlock in the season finale.

The Trojans (3-0-1) fell behind 6-0 late in the first quarter, but freshman quarterback Myles Morris scored on a three-yard run to pull even at the 4:25 mark of the second quarter following a missed PAT.

With 45 seconds remaining in the opening half, Morris scored again on a 15-yard run and connected with Terrell Carmicheal on a two-point pass for the 14-6 halftime edge.

Westlake scored a pair of second-half touchdowns to take a 20-14 lead, the second of which coming with 1:32 to go in the fourth quarter. But the Trojans found some late-game magic on a 40-yard touchdown pass from Morris to Montravious McDaniel with 29 seconds left for the tie.

In other prep football action from Thursday:

Carrollton Junior High 42, Bay Springs 0: The Trojans (3-0) were led by Jamun Evans offensively with three touchdown runs, while J.B. Bulloch and Kelvin Hill pitched in scores, as well. Austin Radar connected on all of his PAT attempts.

Carrollton will be at Central next Thursday afternoon.
