Cardinals Have All Kinds of Problems at Centralia

There were two things that really hurt the South Shelby Cardinals in its 45-0 loss to Centralia Friday night on the road. The first thing was the Cards weren’t able to adjust to the wet weather conditions the way Centralia did, and that resulted in several costly turnovers for South Shelby. The second thing, Centralia (ranked 3 in Class 2) is just a pretty darn good football team.
   On the first play from scrimmage, Centralia’s Kaiden Davenport ran 39 yards to the Cardinal 27 yard line. South Shelby looked to catch a break immediately on the next play when the Cardinals were able to recover a Centralia fumble, taking over on their own 24 yard line. South Shelby caughed it right back up on the first play from scrimmage. Three plays later Davenport scored from two yards out to give the Panthers a 6-0 lead. The point after was no good and it was 6-0 with 10:38 in the first quarter.
   The Cardinals were able to pickup a first down on their next drive before fumbling the ball back over to Centralia. This gave the Panthers another short field, starting at the South Shelby 25 yard line. It took Centralia five plays to go 25 yards as Kyland Dickerson hauled in an 18 yard touchdown pass on the left side from Klayton Simpkins. The two point conversion was no good and the Panthers led 12-0 with 7:10 to play in the first quarter.
   After the next Cardinal drive stalled out after a quarterback sack on third down, Centralia started from the Panther 48 yard line. They went 52 yards on nine plays, scoring on the first play of the second quarter on a one yard run by Marty. The point after failed because of a bad snap, making it 18-0 Centralia with 11:56 to play in the first half.
