    In a big Hoosier Hills Conference (HHC) win Friday night, the Floyd Central Highlanders used a tight defense to defeat the Seymour Owls 37-10.
    They did this without the services of senior quarterback Max Guenther, too.
    Floyd Central also improved their overall record to 4-0, with a HHC slate of 2-0. They are of course also undefeated in the new Ron Weigleb Stadium.
    The Highlanders got on board for the first time in the game with a 35-yard field goal from Jason VanBuren at the 4:24 mark in the 1st quarter.
    On the ensuing possession by Seymour, the Owls committed a fumble, and Floyd Central recovered the ball and commenced a drive by the Highlanders that resulted in a touchdown by Jeffrey Thompson at the 8:46 mark in the 2nd quarter.
