Carterville Football Showing Progress Despite Only One Win So Far

CARTERVILLE — The Carterville Lions almost pulled out one of the biggest upsets of the season Friday night when they fell at home to undefeated Nashville by only 3 points, 41-38. For Carterville coach Brett Diel, he says even with a record of 1-5, his Lions are showing they aren’t packing it up for the year.

Diel says if his team had a better start Friday night, the headlines would likely be much different after the ballgame.

Carterville’s remaining schedule includes a trip to Pinckneyville on October 18th, and two home dates with Sparta and Mascoutah.
