The Hollow Rock-Bruceton Central High School Tigers capped off the regular season Friday night with a 21-7 regional win over McEwen, finishing fourth in their region and earning a spot in the state playoffs.

The Tigers, who are entering the playoffs with even records of 4-4 overall and 3-3 in regional competition, will be on the road in the first round Friday night, facing off with Fayetteville High School, the number one seed in that region with an 8-0 overall record and an undefeated 5-0 region tally.

Game time is set for 7 p.m.

This past Friday night, following a scoreless first quarter for both teams, Central’s Malik Mathes broke the ice on the first play of the second quarter with a 25-yard touchdown carry. The extra point kick put the Tigers ahead 7-0.

Later in the second, after a muffed punt, Central’s Thomas Crews scored from 23 yards out. The PAT failed, but Central was pulling away 13-0.

McEwen, however, managed to make a mark before the halftime break with a big 60-yard scoring run by Tommy Wills, followed by a successful kick, but that still left the Tigers with a 13-7 halftime advantage.

FINAL SCORE – Central’s Caleb Haskins delivered the final touchdown during the Tigers’ 21-7 win over McEwen Friday night.

The third quarter ticked by with no change on the scoreboard.

Central’s Caleb Haskins scored the final touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter on a 45-yard sprint. A successful two-point conversion set the Tigers’ winning margin at 14 points.
