Central ends season at Oakland with first round loss PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, November 12, 2013

A shutdown Oakland defense kept Central off the board Friday in the Wildcats season ending loss to the Patriots, 41-0. 

Oakland didn’t allow a Wildcat first down until the 7:23 mark of the second quarter, and had already compiled a 20-0 lead at that point. 

It started well for the Wildcats, as Preston Reed came up with a sack on the first play of the game, and Kyle Coombes got a sack of his own on third down. 

The Patriots punted the ball away, but a roughing the punter call kept their drive alive. 

On the next play, Fred Wade would go 73 yards for the score. 

Central would get a fourth down stop on the next Patriot drive, but couldn’t cash in on the turnover on downs. 

Oakland held the 20-0 lead at the half, all on Wade runs. 

He finished with 206 yards rushing and four scores. 

Central ended the season 6-5, reaching the playoffs for the second straight year. 

The Wildcats will graduate 22 seniors from this year’s team going into the 2014 season.
