Bobcats run all over Tigers, cruise to victory


The Centralia football team dropped its 14th straight game on Friday, losing 28-6 to Aberdeen at Tiger Stadium.

The ground-and-pound Aberdeen attack wasn’t flashy early, but it was consistent, as the Bobcats scored two touchdowns to take a 14-0 lead.

The Tigers (0-3) were able to get on the board with a two-yard touchdown run from JoJo Simpson before the half, but a 63-yard Aberdeen run in the third quarter put the Tiger deficit back at two scores.

Another big run in the fourth quarter put it out of reach for good, and the Bobcats rode out the win despite not completing a single pass.

The Tigers had trouble getting anything going on the ground, as no Tiger was able to scratch 40 yards rushing. Kellen Rooklidge led the way with 39 yards, and Simpson was next up at 30.

As a team, Centralia ran for 77 yards on 29 attempts, just 2.7 yards per carry.

The Tigers next chance to get back in the win column will come next Friday at Tumwater.
