Central’s varsity football team fought hard against Stone Memorial on Friday, October 2. The final score of 28-6 does not accurately reflect how well the Pounders played.

At the end of the first half, Central was only down 6-0.

“We worked well as a team the first half,” shared junior kicker Jared Eddy. “Stone Memorial was a beatable team. They were smaller, slower, and less athletic. This should’ve been an easy win.”

Soon after the second half started, both Stone Memorial and Central’s Taven Spann got touchdowns. The score was then 14-6. By the end of the second half, Stone Memorial scored two more touchdowns.

“Honestly, we didn’t show up the second half. We couldn’t move the ball, and our defense just got tired,” noted Eddy.

The varsity team has had a rough season with all games ending in a loss. Their fans are as supportive as ever, but it seems that everyone needs a win to pick them up.

“I think we can beat anybody if they do what we have been practicing,” stated Head Coach Gary Bloodsaw.

He has been working with the team on correcting the problems they have been making during games. One of the main reasons the varsity team has not won a game yet is because they have not been working together.

“They’re not in sync,” described Bloodsaw.

Central’s varsity football team has been working hard to improve and will continue to do so. The Central Digest will keep cheering on the Pounders no matter what the score may be.
