The Floyd Central Highlanders’ dream football season came to a sudden halt at Center Grove in the regional of football Class 5A Friday night. The Trojans won a decisive 42-7 victory in the contest, and the reason was pretty simple: they kept it simple, and ran straight up the middle.
Center Grove is the defending Class 5A state champs in football, and they showed why they won the title in state’s biggest class last season.
A total of three different Trojan running backs passed the 100 rushing yard mark in the game, and the school won its sixth regional title in football with the win.
Running for 131 yards for the Trojans was back Jimmy Daggett, who amassed his total off of 15 carries. Nolan Weidman added 108 yards on 12 carries for Center Grove, and Jimmy Boshears ran for 117 yards on nine carries.
Center Grove scored a touchdown off of its first four possessions, and took a 28-0 lead going into the second half.
Floyd Central meanwhile struggled on offense and failed to capitalize on turnovers caused by their defense.
The Highlanders garnered just a total of 157 yards on offense, with 81 of them on the ground, and 76 in the air. The Trojans amassed a total of 473 yards on offense, with 430 of them on the ground.
Floyd Central closed out their season at 9-4.
