  • Defense stout again in 45-0 rout

    Depending on which poll you look at, the Central Eagles are ranked No. 1 or 2 in Class 2A. Either way, they proved worthy of their ranking Friday night by manhandling the visiting Andrew Jackson Volunteers 45-0 and it could have been much worse. The scoreboard clock ran continuously in the fourth quarter.
    The Eagles wasted little time putting points on the board, moving 52 yards for their first touchdown. This came on quarterback Jowan Henderson’s 17-yard pass to Radford Robinson with 7:38 remaining in the first quarter. The extra point attempt was no good.
