Central shuts out Manassas Park

Posted 2017-09-21

Unbeaten and unchallenged Central took its football juggernaut on the road for the first tine this season Friday night and had no trouble vanquishing winless Manassas Park, 48-0.

The Falcons, who in three games have scored 160 points while holding opponents to just 20, scored early and often against the Cougars on a cool night in Prince William County. Though Central was a heavy favorite to win, even the most faithful wondered before kickoff how the Falcons would perform in their first trip outside friendly Woodstock. They didn't disappoint.

The Falcons jumped on the Cougars early, scoring 41 of their 48 points in the first half. Central's Hunter Mullins and Shane Watson each rushed for a TD in the first quarter before speedster Kyle Clanton ripped off a 64-tard punt return to the end zone. Andrew Miller made good on six points after touchdown kicks in the game without missing.

Central's Varsey Bright scored twice in the second period, once on a 19-yard pass from Zeb Dyer and later on a 46-yard punt return. Clanton put the Falcons on the board again before half on a 45-yard touchdown pass from Dyer. Dyer connected with Christian Spitler for Central's only touchdown of the second half.
