On Saturday July 11th the Comets traveled to Urbana High School to take part in a 16 team 7 on 7 Tournament. The Comets came away with a 2-6 record on the day. The Comets opened the day with a win over Dunlap HS. In game 2 the Comets took on Tuscola a 2A Semifinalst from last year falling just short of a comeback victory 20-14. Game 3 saw Central take on long time SVC foe St. Joe Ogden a 3A Quarterfinalist last season. Some missed opportunities cost the Comets and SJO got the win. The Comets stayed competitive most of the days but again missed opportunities cost them in close losses to Matoon, Chicago Hubbard, Urbana. The Comets did rally to end the day on a good note defeating Arcola in its final game of the afternoon. The Comets next 7 on 7 will be Saturday July 25 at the Pontiac 7 on 7.
Southside wins Senior Bowl 18-0 Saturday night. Chris Garcia scored the first 2 Touchdowns for the South and had close to 100 yards total offense. Zack Kennell and the offensive line opened up holes for Reasonver (Momence) and Ware (BBCHS). Ben Toberman and Brandon Schoon both made numerous plays for a very aggressive South defense that pitched a shutout. Congrats to all 4 of these guys on representing Central well. Next up this Saturday the annual Shriners All Star Game in Bloomington. Zack Kennell and Ben Toberman suiting up for the East Squad.
