MT. CARMEL – As is usually the case for the Mt. Carmel football team coming out of the annual Gator Bowl scrimmage, only time will tell. Time will tell if the ease in which the offense scored points carries over into the regular season. Time will tell if an offensive line with a new center and two new faces can come together to anchor the attack.

Now, all of a sudden, time will have to tell if a key skilled position injury will force the offense to retool, as it did so admirably last year following the off-season loss off Levi Laws and the opening-game season-ending injury to running back Sean D. Flickinger.

Junior Daxton Peach, last year’s top pass receiver and also a two-year starter on a defense loaded with returnees, suffered what appeared to be a knee injury late in Thursday’s pre-season scrimmage at Riverview Stadium.

With coaches from August 28 season-opening foe Harrisburg looking on, Peach was helped off the field, and was on crutches as he left the complex.

“It’s too early to tell something like that,” said veteran coach Darren Peach of the extent of the injury to his son. “The trainers and doctors will check him out and we’ll see what their prognosis is.”

Subsequent reports indicate Daxton Peach will undergo an MRI exam on Monday.

MT. CARMEL – Aces golf coach John White is quickly learning something about his team.

“Today, we shot two 38s, two 39s and a 40. You can’t get much more consistent than that,” said White after Mt. Carmel’s 27-shot win over Robinson here on Tuesday. “That’s what I think this team will be like.”

The Aces, after finishing second at their own invitational Monday (losing to winner Harrisburg by one shot), again shot a team score of 154 in their first dual match of the season. But this time it was good enough for an easy win over Robinson’s score of 181.

Bridger Kolb and Blake Stipp were co-medalists on the day with rounds of 38. Sophomore Blake Golden, medalist Monday with an uber-impressive 2-under round of 33, was one shot back at 39, tied with Paul Ruth.
