Central ends 14-game losing streak

PADDOCK LAKE — The public address announcer for Central’s Southern Lakes Conference football game with visiting Union Grove kept the wet and cold crowd informed of all the places in the nation that were much warmer than Paddock Lake on Friday night.

However, for the Central student body that stormed the field after the Falcons had stopped a three-season 14-game losing streak with an 18-11 victory, there was no better place to be.

“This ‘W’ is for all the students who stuck with us,” said senior linebacker Luke Blair, who led Central’s defensive effort with 11 solo tackles. “It feels real good to finally get a win. It was a team effort, which made it all the sweeter.”

Falcons out to turn things around


Win the day. That is the mantra of the Central Falcons football team this season as they look to erase the memory of last year’s 0-9 record.

Second-year head coach Tyson Mengel said his players are focused on the task at hand and have been working hard preparing for their season opener 7 p.m. Friday at Big Foot.

Falcons fall to SLC tri-champion Panthers


WILMOT — The game wasn’t smooth, negative offensive plays and turnovers were prevalent and the officials made some calls that were — to remain politically correct — confusing to both teams.

But when the clock finally drained to zero on an exceedingly long and bizarre game, the outcome was sweet for the Wilmot football team.

Central stalls vs. Elkhorn

PADDOCK LAKE — These are the things that happen when you’re rebuilding.

Throughout the second half Friday against Elkhorn in a Southern Lakes Conference opener, the Central football team seemed poised to not only score its first points of the season, but also to wrestle away the momentum of the game and maybe even steal a win.
