Staff writer

In their second district game of the season, in front of a homecoming crowd, the Centre Cougars handily put away Wakefield, 50-0. The game was called at halftime because of the 45-point mercy rule.

Fullback Jensen Riffel dominated Centre’s play, scoring six running touchdowns. He had seven carries for 145 of Centre’s 227 rushing yards and had 13 tackles.

Jacob Hird scored the seventh touchdown on a 20-yard pass from quarterback Braxton Smith.

Smith, Luke Hudson, and Aidan Svoboda scored conversion points.

The Cougars are now 4-2 overall and 2-0 in district play. Centre will play Rural Vista at 7 p.m. Friday at White City.
