CPS Rebel Football Scores Definitive Win

By  | 

Webster defines versatility as turning with ease from one position or thing to another and having many aptitudes.  The play of the Central Private Rebels in their 40-14 victory over Columbia Academy on Friday night fit both definitions.
The Rebels scored in a variety of ways and with a variety of people.  Running back Bobby Muse got the scoring started on a 15-yard reception from quarterback Jason Young.  Brandt Moore added the PAT and CP took an early 7-0 lead.  Columbia Academy’s Josh Hamilton would answer that touchdown with a 1-yard run of his own and CA tied the score at 7-7 with the successful PAT.
CP would score the next four touchdowns to put the game into the victory column for the Rebels.  Muse who had 187-yards rushing on the night added a 75-yard run for six points to his earlier touchdown reception to give the Rebels that they would not relinquish.  After the Moore PAT the Rebels led 14-7. 
The defense joined the scoring parade as they returned two successive CA fumbles into 14 points.  First defensive end Matt Wallace scooped up a Columbia Academy and rumbled 30-yards for a Rebel score.  CA would cough up the football again and this time Young would take it into the end zone from 45-yards away to add to his touchdown pass and a 27-7 Rebel lead at the half.
The Rebels would begin the third quarter just as they ended the second, scoring.  This touchdown came courtesy of another Rebel quarterback, Jacob Fryhoux, throwing a 38 yard strike to Wallace for his second score on the evening.
Fullback Travis Richard who rushed for 95-yards on the evening, finished the Rebel scoring with a 10-yard blast through the middle of the CA defense.  Chad Ward added a late score on a four yard run for Columbia Academy to make the final score Central Private 40 Columbia Academy 14.
The offensive front five of Steven Whiddon, Matt Overlease, Cam Tate, Andy Kinchen, and Travis Rose paved the way for 307-yards rushing for the Rebels on the night.  The defense led by Chase Metz, Tyler Schultz, Gage Wilkerson, and Ridge Perkins held CA to under 200 total yards for the game.  The win kept the Rebels perfect in district play at 4-0 and moved them to 5-1 on the season.
