NEW CHAPEL HILL — Kason Davis threw a touchdown and Keaontay Ingram ran for two more to give Carthage a 25-17 win over Chapel Hill to close out the regular season on Friday night.

Carthage (7-2, 4-2 in District 9-4A Division I) comes out of the District of Doom as the league’s third seed and will face Silsbee at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Abe Martin Stadium in Lufkin. Carthage beat Silsbee, 56-40, in the state quarterfinals last season and also came out on top in the postseason in 2012 and 2013.

Chapel Hill ended its season 2-8 overall and 1-5 in district.

Blake Hightower’s 1-yard touchdown run gave Chapel Hill a 14-6 lead with 5:50 left in the first half. Carthage responded with a 1-yard score by Ingram, but a failed two-point conversion gave Chapel Hill a 14-12 lead at halftime.

Carthage would only surrender a field goal in the second half while taking the lead on a 38-yard blocked punt return for a touchdown by Jase Dixon and icing the game on Ingram’s 3-yard touchdown run with 5:21 left in the game.

Davis hit Dee Bowens for a 19-yard touchdown to give Carthage an early 6-0 lead, but Chapel Hill responded with a 12-yard touchdown run to go up 7-6.

Ingram finished with 118 yards on the ground while Davis completed 13 of 21 passes for 211 yards. Dewaylon Ingram caught seven passes for 75 yards in the win.
