Last Friday night, the Caravan (6-3, 2-2) took on the Celtics of Providence Catholic (5-4, 2-2) at Gately Stadium. The Caravan started the game with the ball and scored within the first three minutes of the game. Both sides kept at it for the first half until the Celtics added two more scores after two Caravan fumbles. The first half score was 27-14, Providence Catholic.

At halftime, Coach Frank Lenti simply told his players, “Don’t give up.” The players took action by causing turnovers and scoring. Senior Aristotle Nakos rushed for four touchdowns in the game, including the one that gave Mount Carmel the 35-34 lead with 3:56 left in the third quarter.

“I give credit to the offensive line, they kept pushing and pushing, it was a great win today,” Nakos stated. Providence went into the fourth quarter desperate to score. They drove the ball all the way to the Caravan’s three yard line. Then they fumbled the ball and it was recovered by junior Matt Lenti. It was all Caravan after that.

“We’re Mount Carmel, we never give up,” quoted senior Alek Thomas. Next week, the Caravan continues their season in the IHSA state playoffs against Moline High School in Moline, Illinois, on Saturday at 4 pm.
