CARBON HILL – The Calera Eagles shutout their third opponent of the season in a 60-0 handling of Carbon Hill on Oct. 5.

Calera (5-1, 3-1) added 20 points in the second quarter and six in the third.

John Killingsworth led the Eagles’ rushing attack with 115 yards on 10 carries with a touchdown. Shakeith Tyes scored two rushing touchdowns on 35 yards on the ground while Ronnie Clark and Sam Adams each added a score.

Zack Reneau threw for 119 yards on 6-of-8 passing with two touchdowns. Sean Johnson led the Calera receivers with a 59 yard reception with a touchdown with Jordan Bishop catching two passes for 35 yards and a score.
