Down 10-7 late in the first half, Mt. Carmel Caravan running back Matt Domer ran 18 yards for a score to take the lead. The Caravan maintained a lead throughout the game. In a valiant effort against the defending Class 8A state champs, Rice's Alex Alarcon connected with wide receiver Jack Desmond for two touchdowns, but it wasn't quite enough to topple the No. 1 team in the state.
