Central lost its opening football game Friday under new coach Brad Seiss.

The Bearcats fell 42-13 to Pendleton Heights at home.

The Bearcats trailed 14-7 late in the first half before a long touchdown pass put the Arabians ahead 21-7 with approximately 1:30 to go in the half. Pendleton Heights then used another long touchdown pass to go ahead 28-7 on the opening drive of the second half.

The Bearcats matched that with a touchdown to cut the deficit to 28-13, but they were never able to fully recover.

“They were both on third downs,” Seiss said. “We had a chance to get off the field and we had a couple breakdowns.”

Tim Barrett scored both of the Bearcats’ touchdowns, one on a two-yard run and the other on a five-yard run.

Seiss said his offensive line played well, helping the Bearcats move the ball on the ground.

“We did a good job of moving them up front, we didn’t give up a sack and we had more than 150 yards rushing.”
