Tamarkus Carter punt return TD IMG_2827.jpg

The Rams' Tamarkus Carter heads for the end zone to cap off a dazzling 55-yard punt return during the first quarter of Friday night's 2010 home opener against the Argyle Eagles at Ram Stadium. Mineral Wells lost, 47-20.

For the first two quarters, the Mineral Wells Rams looked like they were ready to battle Argyle to the end.

But the last two quarters - especially the third - was all Argyle as the Eagles ran away from the Rams, 47-20, to spoil Mineral Wells' 2010 home opener at Ram Stadium.

Up 20-13 at the half, Argyle took the opening second half kickoff the distance for a TD. Mineral Wells then fumbled the ensuing kickoff to set up the Eagles for an easy score to essentially put the game away.

Mineral Wells fell to 0-2 on the young season while Argyle improved to 2-0.
