The Rebels led 7-0 with 8:19 to play in the first quarter. Central scored three more in the first half. Gage Manion scored on a seven-yard run to make it 14-0 with 3:48 to play in the first.

Another pass to Korokis and a Burrows keeper got Fredericktown to the Central 17. An interception ended the Fredericktown drive.
