    At Friday’s Homecoming game, the CHS Homecoming Court was introduced before the game and during halftime.  At halftime, the Homecoming Queen was crowned. Taylor Padgett, a senior and co-captain of the CHS volleyball team, won the honor.  Homecoming Court also included Megan Smith, Jaci Ashford, Cassandra Soniat, Alexandra Burns, Rachel Raborn, Carissa Burch, Bridget Lieux, Stephanie Calamia, Hannah Ashford, Breigh Allen, Bobbie Broome, Tori Evans, Emily Shelton, and Alicen Lieux. 

    The Central Wildcats had a strong showing in their Homecoming game against Sarah Reed last Friday night.  Cortlan Hutchinson scored the first touchdown of the night halfway through the first quarter, and several of his team members followed suit, racking up a total of 51 points in the first half of the game.

    During halftime, the coaches of both teams agreed to go to running time for the second half, meaning that the clock does not stop except for time outs.  The second half of the game brought less action from the offense.  Sarah Reed put up 6 points in the fourth quarter with a 45-yard fumble return, and Central answered a few minutes later when Brett Courville ran in for the final score of the night, leaving the game at 58-6.  Matthew Thibodeaux kicked 6 extra points during the game. 

    Central’s defense played hard throughout the night, as Sarah Reed had possession for the majority of the game.  Austin Watts and J.R. Richardson were stand outs on the defensive side, with 1 touchdown each.  Watts also ran the ball in after Central’s second touchdown for a successful 2-point conversion.  The Wildcats play again at home this Friday night at 7 p.m. vs Scotlandville.
