Struggling Doss offense tries to get going

Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

• Central picked up its first win of the season last week by blanking Eastern 38-0. The defense scored three touchdowns, as Quincy Baines and Kenndale Briggs both returned interceptions for scores and Aaron Duncan returned a fumble 26 yards for a TD. Senior Stevon Beason (211 yards) leads Central’s rushing attack.

• Doss has struggled to score under first-year coach Phillip Hawkins, managing just eight total points through its first three games. That includes a 19-2 loss to Seneca last week that saw the Dragons commit four turnovers. Tyler Jefferson has Doss’ only touchdown of the season, a 42-yard reception in a 28-6 loss to Pleasure Ridge Park in the season opener.

• The pick: Central 28-14.
