Central collects first victory on road against St. Charles

Saturday, September 23, 2006

Blake Slattery connected with Eric Ennis on two touchdown passes in the second half, as the Central football team picked up its first win with a 24-6 decision Friday night at St. Charles, Mo.

Ennis caught two TD passes, sophomore George Hamilton returned a kickoff for a TD, and Tyler McNabb kicked a field goal and three extra points for Central (1-3).

McNabb's 18-yard field goal came in the closing seconds of the first half and sent the Tigers into the locker room ahead 10-6 -- their first halftime lead of the year.

Central put the game away with a 43-yard pass play from Slattery to Ennis and later a 9-yard completion between the same parties on a pass that was deflected.

Perryville 20, Park Hills 12

Perryville was hit hard by storms that caused a power outage and storm delay, but the Pirates improved to 3-1 with a home victory over the Rebels.

"Three-and-one, that flows so much better off the tongue," said Pirates coach Rick Chastain, whose team was 0-10 last year.

Kris Cottner led the Pirates offense with 156 yards on 25 carries and two touchdowns. He and Brian Birchler scored first-half TDs that put Perryville ahead 14-0.

After Park Hills Central (2-2) closed to within 14-12, Cottner ripped off a long touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
