The Peabody-Burns Junior High School football season ended Thursday with a home loss to Centre, 44-12. The team finished 0-6 for the season.
“While we did not win a game, the Junior Warriors improved from the first kickoff through every contest of the season,” coach Brian Simmonds said. “As a team, we want to thank everyone for their support.”
Centre had all of the offense in the first half, scoring 38 points. The PBJHS offense had the ball six times but produced no points. Centre led 38-0 at the half.
The Junior Warriors’ offense opened the second half with a drive that put the team on the scoreboard. Austin Reynolds ran a quarterback sneak for a touchdown. The conversion failed but PBJHS cut Centre’s lead to 38-6 with 7:18 left in the third.
The Centre offense scored two minutes later. With 5:02 left in the quarter, PBJHS was down, 44-6.
Early in the fourth, Centre had a miscue on a punt and Reynolds recovered the ball. Reynolds then hit Chance Elliott for six points.
