They dropped a pair of Northeastern Buckeye Conference games to Louisville, plus fell to Edison Local in a nonleague game.
Their record is now 14-9 overall and 7-5 in the NBC.
Last Tuesday, the Warriors were on the road for an NBC contest at Louisville.
The Leopards struck early, scoring four times in the bottom of the first inning and went on to defeat the Warriors 6-2.
Senior Storm Mohn had three hits, including a double, and a RBI, while Adam Warner added two hits and a run scored. Andrew Collins added a hit and run scored and Tyler Krantz a hit and RBI.
The Warriors out hit the Leopards 8-7, but the Warriors committed two errors in the game while the Leopards only had one.
Krantz went the distance in taking the loss.
Both Warrior runs came in the third inning.
Last Wednesday, the Warriors traveled to Edison Local to face the Wildcats.
Again Carrollton fell behind early, trailing 6-1 after the opening inning.
Edison added two runs in each of the fourth and sixth innings to defeat the Warriors 10-1.
Carrollton was held to just three hits in the game - singles by Warner, Collins and Mirko Dobrijevic. Jeremiah Lowery had a RBI for Carrollton.
Dobrijevic and Adam Birtcher were on the mound for the Warriors with Dobrijevic taking the loss. He struck out three and walked three. He gave up eight runs on eight hits.
In one inning of work, Birtcher added two runs on one hit with a walk.
Last Thursday, the Warriors hosted Louisville. The Warriors had problems finding hits. They were held to just three hits and were shut out by the Leopards 3-0.
Krantz, Lowery and Johnson each had a single for the Warriors.
Lowery pitched a solid game for Carrollton. He gave up three runs on eight hits, while walking six.
It was a strong defensive effort by both teams as neither committed an error.
Carrollton will end its regular season this week. The Warriors were to travel to Salem on Tuesday and host Salem on Thursday.
They were to begin tournament play Wednesday against Indian Creek at Vaccaro Field in Steubenville.
