The 7th grade Centralia Panthers lost a hard fought battle to the Palmyra Panthers on Tuesday night. Beau Gordon got his first score of the season with a 2-yard QB sneak to open up the scoring and give Centralia the 6-0 lead. Palmyra answered and scored their two-point conversation to take the 6-8 lead. Centralia put together a nice 2-minute drive. Jaren Johnston had a driving 19-yard catch from Beau Gordon, to move the ball to the Palmyra’s 47-yard line. Austin Tuggle capped off the drive with a great 45-yard run, just before the half, but came up 2 yards short of the touchdown as time expired. Centralia finished the first half, down 6-16. After half, Palmyra scored again to push the score to 6-22. Grant Erisman had a nice 22-yard catch and run. Payton Neely had a team high with 8 tackles; 3 of the tackles were for a loss. The Centralia Panthers travel to Macon next Tuesday to take on the Tigers.
