Matthew Bobak, senior running back, led the team rushing 22 times for 192 yards and three touchdowns.
Bobak scored the first points of the game after a five-yard run in the first quarter. Conant then responded when quarterback Kevin Polaski tied the game after a seven-yard pass to wide receiver Anthony Wachal.
The first half was seemingly going to end in a tie, but with five seconds left Central junior wide receiver Braden Contreras caught a 51 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Rush on fourth down.
One of the biggest plays came from Guy Henry Goss, junior safety, when he intercepted a pass from Polaski. This stopped the momentum the Conant football team gained after Ronald Williams hit a Central punt returner, leading to a fumble recovery by Ruben Valdez.
Bobak broke free for a 50 yard touchdown run to increase Central’s lead to 21-7.
An interception by Andrew Novatney, junior defensive back, led to Bobak to rush for another touchdown in the first play of the fourth quarter. Thus increasing the score of the game to 28-7.
