Pinecrest is coming off a 34-12 win at Walker in which Paladins quarterback Ryan McCarthy shined, but not how you might expect. He was potent on offense, as usual, rushing for 102 yards and two touchdowns on five carries while completing 5 of 8 passes for 53 yards. But McCarthy also had 13 tackles on defense and two interceptions, both of which he returned for touchdowns.
