Prep roundup: Waterford overwhelms Central in football

Central was limited to 64 rushing yards and six first downs in falling to visiting Waterford 35-6 in a Southern Lakes Conference football game on Friday night.

The Wolverines scored the game’s first 35 points in moving to 3-1 in the SLC and 5-1 overall.

“We were outplayed tonight,” said Central coach Tyson Mengel, whose team fell to 1-5 and 0-4. “We didn't tackle well in the first half and put ourselves in a hole. Unfortunately, we did not rise to the challenge offensively either.”
